Windows Presentation Foundation Unleashed (WPF)
Unleash the hounds!
Something about SAM's unleashed lineup, as of late, has me dancing about with a renewed vigor and WPF Unleashed is yet another log on that fire. Some review the document as being somewhat a general reference as well as being a bit on the extremist side demanding formal training in the WPF realm of discipline. These are somewhat erroneous ascertions as the only real requirement is a basic ...
Adobe Photoshop Restoration & Retouching (3rd Edition)
New Riders Press
Best Book Out There On Retouching
If you don't like Scott Kelby's Court Jester writing style, get this book. It's written professionally in easy to read phrases. I own both Kelby's and Eastman's book on this topic, and both cover similar things, but sometimes Kelby's results are more to my liking and sometimes Eastman's are. They cover different things too. Excellent book.
The Photoshop Elements 5 Book for Digital Photographers
New Riders, 2008
Photoshop Elements 5
I have Adobe Elements 5 on my computer but try as I might, I have barely been able to do the simplest things using the tutorial. After reading all the reviews I could find on books for the program, I settled on this book by Scott Kelby. As soon as I opened the book up, I immediately tried doing the one thing I struggled with, and like magic, every step took me where I wanted to go. If I can ...
Photoshop Masking & Compositing
New Riders Press
Although written for Photoshop CS, "Photoshop Masking & Compositing" can easily be applied to CS3. Eismann's experience as a teacher enables her to present complex material in an easy to follow style. The magic of Photoshop jumps off the pages. If you can sit down at a computer and follow step by step instructions in a book, you will wonder how you ever lived without this book.

There are a lot of great books out there for people who have already written and published their book, but if you are an aspiring author, this is a must-read for you! Buy this book, write your book, decide how to ...
Web Analytics: An Hour a Day
The Holy Grail for any Web Analytics Junkie
I've been promising this book review of "Web Analytics: An Hour a Day" by Avinash Kaushik for near six months and it has taken every week of six months to finally make it all the way through this book. I've spoken many times about Avinash and his wonderful blog "Occam's Razor" which this book being the pinnacle piece of the writings on that blog. Avinash is an analytical genus and the knowledge ...
Programming .NET Components
O'Reilly Media, Inc., 2009
.Net on Steroids !
A Classic Book that begins it's journey, where all books end. The true difference between a casual programmer and a disciplined programmer is more prominent in his/her code when they start using advanced features of the framework. A true programmer knows his stuff in and out and knows how to leverage the features of the framework effectively in every line of code. And to get to that level of ...

The Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi/450D Companion
Must have for a Newbie!!
Ok, I have read all of the reviews saying "It's just a fancy manual". That may be the case for someone with previous DSLR experience. I, however, have never owned or operated a DSLR before my XSI. I read the manual and, frankly, much of it read Greek to me. I'm not an idiot but the practical application to much of it was lost on me. This guide changed that. Ben Long does an excellent job of ...
Confessions of a Public Speaker
A crucial read for anyone responsible for presentations
Before speaking at a national event, I put myself through a public speaking crash course that included multiple coaching sessions from my wife--whom was a national forensics champ in a previous life--and by reading this book. The two balanced each other perfectly. This book is written in an easy prose style that goes down like a drink of water, and is packed full of both useful philosophies for ...
Cold Fusion Web Application Construction Kit, Second Edition with Cold Fusion and Cold Fusion Studio
Great Book. Even for beginners.
I have very little programming experience and have this book to be very easy to use.
Dreamweaver 3 Hands-On-Training (2nd Edition)
Absolutely the Best
I must say that Lynda is, hands down, the best instructor I've ever come across on the printed page. I've been using Dreamweaver for over two years and I learned so much from this book. The chapters and exercises were so concise, so ordered and really a lot of fun. I recommend this book whole-heartedly!
How to Land a Top-Paying Federal Job: Your Complete Guide to Opportunities, Internships, Resumes and Cover ...
I really like the insights into the Federal hiring process provided by this book. Since the author is a full-time Federal hiring manager, I find her information refreshing, helpful and enlightening. She provides a "real world" perspective about what to do and what to expect. Although she gives a high level view of how to write a Federal resume, her example resumes are a very good guide to follow. ...

The Gregg Reference Manual
Gregg Reference Manual Review
This manual is a must-have for any office professional who wants to create crisp, professional documents. I use mine at least once a day to double-check my usage, which in turn makes my boss look good!
Developer's Workshop to COM and ATL 3.0
Jones & Bartlett Publishers, 2000
Fantastic book, maybe not for the absolute beginner
My current project at work required me to learn COM. I purchased several books to assist in the learning, and I must say that this book is absolutely indispensible, both as an instructional medium and as a reference. I highly recommend this book to anyone needing to learn about COM. What's inside? It starts with a basic intro to COM, useful (dare I say it) for managers as well as the ...
NIV Life Application Study Bible
This is my 2nd Life Application study Bible, and I love the colors. I love that Bibles are finally coming around to have stylish covers!
Joel on Software: And on Diverse and Occasionally Related Matters That Will Prove of Interest to Software ...
almost funny; must for any software entrepreneur
Joel is doing an excellent job in presenting his arguments. He's funny (in most cases) elegant and you can find yourself saying: mmmm, he has a point. You don't need to read it cover to conver, though I really recommend doing so. My favorite chapters: Strategy Letter II - that is the Chicken and the Egg problem. "no body is going to buy your platform until there's good software that ...
