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 ...

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 ...
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 ...
The C++ Standard Library: A Tutorial and Reference
Addison-Wesley Professional, 1999
Over the years, I've ordered several copies of this book since they disappear off my shelf (suddenly a co-worker has a copy, strange). I keep one handy at all times for quick and easy reference. I also have Scott Meyers handy cheat sheet for the book: [...] It makes lookup even faster than having to flip to the index. I obviously would recommend this book.

Also very good coverage on how to word an Adword. And a lot of good tips on how to analyze the demand for a product. Very important. Why try to sell it if very few people want it?
Pro ASP.NET MVC Framework
Tips for absorbing this book faster
Currently I'm a little over half-way thru this book and really like it, although (for me personally), I found that the book organization could have been done differently. That said, I realize not everyone is the same. So instead I'm offering a few tips on this book. - If you need a good high-level overview, Start at Chapter 7 The first half of Chapter 7 covers what all these folders/files ...

Effective Java? Programming Language Guide
Prentice Hall, 2007
This Book is a Daily Guide for the Java Developer
I purchased this book last week from Amazon.com and already I am hooked to it.The style is not pedantic but thorough. Lots of tips for the everyday Java programmer from Josh (who wrote the Collections framework in Java). Typically I skim over the chapter for Josh's tidbits of wisdom. I often leave the Mathematical rigor for later reading. This book is NOT FOR IVORY TOWER ARCHITECTS!. Only ...

Stop now. Read this. Then get back to work on the most important project of your career: learning to make data-driven decisions. This is not a series of dry lectures: Avinash's light, readable, and ...

I'm also using the ideas in this book when posting to our Facebook page. Social media requires quick, well-written and engaging ...
Captured by the Light: The Essential Guide to Creating Extraordinary Wedding Photography
New Riders, 2010
A Must Read!
This is one of the ones to have. Some of it I know, but the way the books was done made it interesting and engaging to read. I seriously learned something when I saw how the author applied composition in different ways. This is an outstanding book, and I highly suggest buying it.
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 ...
Java Concurrency in Practice
68 reviews, ...
Addison-Wesley Professional, 2006
Great book! Highly recommended.
Before purchasing this book I borrowed it from a friend. Unfortunately he needed it back before I could finish, but it didn't matter because I had already decided it should be part of my Java book collection. It fits right in with my other two favorite Java books, Effective Java and Java Puzzlers. This book does a great job of explaining concurrency in the Java language and the best practices. ...

Not only that it has detailed description of the main quests and side quests, it contains vital information in the initial character building at the beginning of the game, and much more. In fact, it contains so much information you are in danger of information overload when you are new to the game. The best way to use this guide is ...
