Title: Internetworking with TCP/IP Vol.1: Principles, Protocols, and Architecture (4th Edition)
Publisher: Prentice Hall
Authors: Douglas E. Comer
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Stevens is practical, Comer is theoretical


There are several "bibles" of TCP/IP floating around. This is one of them. Comer takes a more academic and theoretical approach to the topic of TCP/IP with this book than TCP/IP Illustrated Vol 1 by Richard Stevens. I believe that a person interested in this topic should read the Stevens book first, then read this one to further extend her knowledge. Both books are excellent companions to your library and you really can't go wrong with either.

Title: ASP.NET Data Web Controls Kick Start

Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Very helpful as a learning tool and reference.


I've been playing around with ASP.NET for a while now and have always been intimidated by the DataGrid. I don't know why, I just was. I've had this book for a while and finally picked it up to read it. I'm about 3/4 of the way through and have already created my first application and used a DataGrid and a Repeater. Without the book, I'd still probably be hand-hacking at this. Great job, Scott!
