Title: Professional Photoshop: The Classic Guide to Color Correction
Publisher: Wiley
Authors: Dan Margulis
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
The most usefull book


This Photoshop book is an excellent resource for tackling color issues that come up in the workplace every day. Although it would seem that it is partial to CMYK, if you read deeper, you will find that the techniques go far beyond one color space. If you are looking for an ABC 123 book for color in Photoshop, this book might too overwhelming. But as a seasoned color professional, I find myself referring to this book again and again. Reading this book has reminded me that 99% of my color problems can be solved by sticking to basic color theory practices while taking Dan's new Ideas and applying them Accordingly.

Too many errors


Although this book has some great writing and is above average overall, I think the editing was downright awful. Throughout the book there are many syntax errors in examples, the formatting of examples change from page to page, the continuity stinks and naming conventions are all over the place. I'm a little surprised because I expected more from Wrox. They usually don't put out a product this bad. If you can correct all the errors in the examples and can understand the format changes, this is still a good book.

Title: Sams Teach Yourself SQL in 10 Minutes, Third Edition
Publisher: Sams
Authors: Ben Forta
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Great Starting Book


The title is "Teach yourself SOL in 10 minutes" so you should know that this is just a starting book and not a complete explanation of the language. And as a starting book this book is great! If you want to learn how to build multiuser relational databases then I would look for a book that doesn't have "in 10 minutes" in the title, but if your looking to get the jist of SQL then this book is for you. I bought the ebook edition and was able to download it instantly. The author includes links to 2 free database utility's, one of which he wrote, that are worth the price of the ebook alone!

What's the purpose?


I bought this guide thinking it would be as helpful as all the other guides I'd bought from Brady Games in the past. That's what I get for thinking. This book is NOT a guide, it hardly helps you through general gameplay let alone helping you with the secrets of the game. It is however an advertisement for PlayOnline.com, which is rarely accessable. Don't buy this "book", try PlayOnline... If it's working.
