The book is not good. It is Excellent!


I was looking for a book to get into ASP.Net development with C# and my primary goal was to fully utilize the features of .Net environment so that I could write reusable and easily updateable code with the least amount of hassle if there are changes later on in the process. MSDN is great, but it is not always the best way to learn how things are put together in a synthetic whole and how things work in practice. I can't tell you how glad I am to have chanced upon this one:1) The concepts are crystal clear (which is an indication of how clear the concepts are in the authors' minds). They do an excellent job in giving a solid foundation about the general design considerations in few pages. The time one would save if one read the general discussion alone would be worth the book's price.2) Authors omit any obvious explanations (which made the book size very reasonable for such great content), yet don't fail to mention any crucial implementation decision along with the underlying rationale. 3) The code is very clean. (You would not believe how much bad code is out there in programming books.)4) They formulate their sentences with great care. The language, far from being an obstacle, actually becomes a great tool in understanding more difficult topics.5) Provides a very useful context for msdn help so that when you read a particular topic, you know how to use it once you learn it.
If you are a veteran programming book reader, you would know how costly (both $wise and even more importantly, in terms of wasted time and unnecessary frustration) badly written books can be. This book deserves a full rating for both its great content and clear presentation. I hope this sets the standard for all programming books!

All you ever needed to know about DTS


This is a brilliant book by Wrox. I have always wondered about DTS in the past and knew it had been expanded. And this book just develops so many great ideas using the new technology.
I found several of the examples really good, and all were easy to follow. I loved the last example in Chapter 8, the Dynamic Configuration of Package Objects. Neat idea.

Excellent book!


This is the excellent book for everyone who wants to study statistics using SPSS software. Easy to read, very friendly, lots of examples and explanations. Wonderful sense of humor (can you believe it in a book on statistics?). I recommend it to everyone.
