Sonic The Hedgehog Archives Volume 12
Sonic Archives Volume 12
Archives Volume 12 is yet another great installment in the Sonic Archives series. The first couple of issues' worth of content in the book continue the proud tradition of the comic's witty humor mixed with its good vs. evil action that we all love. The second half of the book is really intense, though, as it builds towards the epic 50th issue of the series. All in all, there was nothing about the ...

If you want to succeed in an ebusiness, this is ...

Sams Teach Yourself UNIX System Administration in 24 Hours
A great introduction to thinking like a sysadmin
There are a bunch of things I like about this book. First off, I like that the author covers not only Linux, but also Solaris and Mac OS X. By discussing them all, you get a good sense of how different Unix can be on different platforms. It's also the first book I've seen that discusses command-line based Mac OS X administration at all, so that by itself was very interesting (if occasionally ...

Best HTML Book Around!
I graduated from the University of Redlands (California) with a Bachelor of Science in Information Systems degree a few years ago.

I use this as a reference book now. One of the classes I took ...

Play the Ponziani (Everyman Chess)
As a long time Vienna player (1. e4 e5 2. Nc3) in the last year or so I've been exploring alternatives against 1. e4 e5 without venturing into mainstream Italian, Scotch or Spanish waters. I've tried the Belgrade Gambit, Bishop's Gambit and Center Game. The first two have entire books devoted to them, but both involve pawn sacrifices and are therefore highly speculative by nature, and for the ...

The author focuses on the difficulty that groups have accepting change. Her premise that letting go of old ways is a requirement for accepting new ways is spot on.
