Alligators All Around (Nutshell Books)
An ABC book fit for wild things
Maurice Sendak's Alligators All Around: An Alphabet portrays a family of three alligators through the ups and downs of daily life in their household. Not a traditional narrative, the personalities of the alligator family emerge in a series of humorous vignettes associated with each letter of the alphabet. "D" shows the child grudgingly helping his father "doing dishes"; "G" shows the family ...
C++ the Core Language (Nutshell Handbooks)
Focused and Concise
C++: The Core Language is a well written book and a pleasure to read. It appears that that authors made an extra effort to remove unneeded verbiage. I appreciate this because I have so much to read. The bread and butter OOD concepts of abstraction and polymorphism are well covered. The chapter on templates covers this difficult subject well, however, I would have liked to have seen a little ...
One Was Johnny: A Counting Book
A counting book with attitude!
Unlike so many dull counting books (and their companion dull alphabet books), this book has a quirky attitude all its own. "One" shows Johnny happy alone, reading a book; as we count upward, a number of raucous animals and even a robber invade his home. We start to count down when Johnny threatens his uninvited guests, "I'm going to count backwards and when I am through/If this house isn't empty, ...
C# 4.0 in a Nutshell: The Definitive Reference
Fat-free reference to C#
I love this book! I am an experienced C#/.NET programmer and I love that this book is (1) comprehensive, (2) concise and to the point. Let me elaborate. The book touches on every single feature of C# so if you want to look up a particular C# feature (either the syntax or how it works) it is there in this book. Every topic is explained in a concise way - no laborious explanations using extra-long ...
Evil Geniuses in a Nutshell
Illiad" Frazer J.D.
The Truth Can be Funny
This is one funny book. It truly captures the the world of IT, but puts a humorous slant to it. I read it almost from cover to cover and now frequently pick it up when I am in need of a laugh. I also like to post some of the topics on the door of my office. That bugs the heck out of our NT server folks, the jibes are a little too close to home for them.
PC Hardware in a Nutshell (Nutshell Handbook)
Robert Bruce Thompson
Barbara Fritchman Thompson
, ..., 2000
Power to the People!
Let me start out with a huge thanks to O'Reilly. I'm not a big fan of large corporations or publishers - but I have come to trust O'Reilly implicitly wherever technical issues are concerned. Although I'm certain that they are not the "perfect" publisher, nor in the business for wholly (ha!) altruistic reasons, I AM amazed by the remarkable originality, diversity, range, quality, accuracy, and ...
Food Combining: A Step-By-Step Guide (In a Nutshell, Nutrition Series)
Beer is a Starch
Who knew beer was a starch? Not me! Like many of the other reviewers, I came into food combining through the Marilu Henner, Total Health Makeover plan. Marilu's books are great but they don't provide enough detail about classifying produce. For instance, I wanted to eat a sweet potato with a protein and checked Marilu's book to make sure that sweet potatoes were veggies. Sweet potatoes? Not ...

The Perl CD Bookshelf, Version 3.0: 7 Bestselling Books on CD-ROM Includes a Bonus Book! Perl in a Nutshell, ...
O'Reilly & Associates
(Almost) everything a Perl Programmer needs
A review of this CD is rather problematic. Most of the books on this CD (as far as I read them before) are worth 4-5 stars. So this CD with online searching is worth ...5 stars... I will only comment on the CD version of the books and not on each single book (look at the reviews for the single books if you are interested in that). Personally a CD with books is just an add-on to the printed ...
The Bunny's Nutshell Library (four Small Books in Box)
Harper & Row
These books helped to shape who I am
This collection has roamed the shadows of my mind for as long as I can remember. In particular, the bunny in the egg was more than a simple story. It was an mystery that I still can't shake off--I return to it in quiet, unexpected moments. No other book has ever haunted me like that. Perhaps declining sales were Bunny's doom; too bad, but maybe that just makes the mystery all the deeper.
QuarkXPress in a Nutshell: A Desktop Quick Reference (In a Nutshell (O'Reilly))

This book WILL NOT teach you how to use Quark, but covers EVERY SINGLE menu option, window, and shortcut key. A must have. It covers version 4.0, for both Windows and Macintosh. And, best of all, it's written in the simple and to-the-point O'Reilly style. The cost is ...
American History in 100 Nutshells
Thaddeus F. Tuleja
Better than you might think
Amazing, non-orthodox book on US history. This enjoyable, fun and easy reading is full of interesting facts. It shrinks US history down to 100 nutshells which are like reading history between the lines, probably the history most americans don't know. This is an excellent complement to any formal history book. The fresh approach offers excellent culture and, why not?, entertainment. You should not ...

Here at the Tropicana Hotel in Las Vegas we are installing a T1 line from our ISP. I wanted to understand the real technology that's behind all the hardware we are installing. This book is perfect.

UNIX System Programming for System VR4 (Nutshell Handbooks)

This book is written in a very easy and understandable way. It explains main concepts, system calls and their parameters and how to use them.

Windows 95 in a Nutshell (Nutshell Series)
An excellent reference tool
I bought this book on the basis of O'Reilly's well-deserved reputation and the book's reviews here in amazon.com. Thanks for telling me about it! I used to enjoy DOS but never really felt comfortable with Windows. Only the lack of applications for good old DOS and Win 3.1 dragged me kicking and screaming into Win 95, where I never wanted to be, and so I've actually taken up Linux, which is ...

Microsoft RPC Programming Guide (Nutshell Handbooks)
The most cogent guide to RPC programming I have seen.
The authors take the reader from the very first steps to rather complex applications of Remote Procedure Calls. Along the way, they explain how RPC works, and why it is one of the better tools for implementing true client/server systems. Despite a very few factual errors (the page on memory allocation using RpcSs contains one) and despite a too-short description of when to use which memory ...
