Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Brilliant!


This is the definitive book for learning C. I learned efficiently through the detailed lessons, the example code, and the challenging excerises. It is wonderfully concise; the author's have obviously read Strunk and White's _The Elements of Style_, which is another brilliant book...

A most useful and well organised resource


I am currently entering my 2nd semester using this book! the book itself is excellant and well written, especially for the beginner! But take care of which version you get! The only Dif. is the number on the inside cover, and the color of the printer spacing charts in the exercises, while the good oone has all black charts. The book with 123456KP10987 under the ISBN number on the inside page FALLS APART! (Happened to EVERY classmate who used it!), the BAD version also has blue green colored charts in the chapter exercises. BUT ... IT IS A GREAT BOOK TO LEARN FROM!!

Bertrand Meyer's view on all things "object oriented"


A good book, perhaps, for those who want to learn Eiffel (or, as the author simply calls it, "the notation") and why it is the only language that truly supports object oriented software development.
This book is certainly not a comprehensive overview of the subject nor a fair or accurate depiction of non-Eiffel languages and techniques.
I found Mr. Meyer's style both grandiose and pedantic. The book could also use some editing by a native English speaker.
But hey, you get a free demo version of Eiffel on the CD.

Title: Don't Make Me Think: A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability

If you can only read one usability book - make it this one


Fabulous book! Krug's writing style makes for an easy read - clear and engaging language coupled with concise, well thought out content. This book covers all the basics, but does it in such a way that even the experts can learn something new. I am not an avid reader, and I read this in 2 (short) sittings. Take the time - it's well worth it!
