The First Hebrew Primer: The Adult Beginner's Path to Biblical Hebrew, Third Edition
I am now learning Hebrew at the ripe age of 70, A-Man
I once had a dream and all I could recognize was a page of UN-identifiable characters. These turned out to be the aleph-bet or Hebrew language, Gods language. I tried to enter a Christian college as a night student to learn what this language meant or what was God trying to communicate to me, and was refused entrance. This Hebrew Primer is taking me to my understanding of Hebrew and there is ...
C++ Primer (4th Edition)
Stanley B. Lippman
A good first C++ book which is also a great second book and a useful reference
As pointed out in other reviews: compared to previous editions, the 4th edition of the "C++ Primer" is considerably different (and shorter). For this edition, Barbara E. Moo (co-author of "Accelerated C++"), a long-time programmer and writer, vastly revamped and enhanced Stan Lippman's (and Josee Lajoie's) classic. The Good: This book is over 800 pages long, and it is quite complete in its ...
The Puppy Primer
Patricia B. McConnell
McConnell Publishing, Ltd.
Very helpful guide.
We have 2 new chihuahua mix puppies and were having trouble with training them. There are lots of practical solutions in the book. I had heard the author on NPR and read other books of hers so figured I could trust her for good advice.
Speech Science Primer: Physiology, Acoustics, and Perception of Speech
Lawrence J Raphael
Gloria J Borden
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins
"Speech Science" the best primer is updated
This text has, for the past 10 years, been the best and most prestigious of introductory books in our field. It is a fine lead-in for students wondering how speech is constructed. A follow-on for the more advanced student is my "Acoustics of Speech Communication: Fundamentals, Speech Perception Theory and Technology" 1999, Allyn and Bacon. J.M. Pickett
New England Primer
The New England Primer
I found this item excellent. It gives such insight into our past Christian heritage. I purchased this item after I saw The Truth Project and realized how we have been lied to by our government and our history books. It helped me to see the foundation of Truth that our founding fathers felt was so very necessary for our Constitutional Republic form of government to thrive. I would highly ...
A Primer of Drug Action
Dr. Robert M. Julien M.D. Ph.D.
Great for undergraduates like myself!
"A Primer of Drug Action" is quite amazing and reads very easily! What I find so fascinating is how up-to-date the info is. To give an example, in the analgesic section about NSAIDs, the author tells of the new skin patch for diclofenac that came out this year (2008). The eleventh edition began being printed in 2008! Also I enjoy the fact that much of the information provided has references ...
C++ Primer Plus (5th Edition)
Big book, detailed explanations
I'm a veteran C programmer and have been given an assignment in C++. I thought the jump would be a piece of cake, because I had sort of looked at C++ many years ago never going much beyond Hello World, and because I had done 2 years of C# programming. It turned out that C++ is considerably more complex than I had expected and it has evolved over the years. I did have Lipmann's C++ Primer in its ...
A Gospel Primer for Christians: Learning to See the Glories of God's Love
Focus Publishing (MN)
Solid truth to stand on when the sand is swept out from under you
Snapshot: Quite a few things fall into the category of gifts that keep on giving- cameras, blenders, vaccinations, cookie cutters, and washable crayons. It may be redundant to claim that the gospel goes far beyond all those things and is in a category by itself, but it needs to be said. I remember a period in my Christian life where I just wanted to grow in the Lord so badly. I felt if i could ...
Thinking in Systems: A Primer
Donella H. Meadows
Chelsea Green Publishing
The Clearest and Most Accessible Presentation on Systems
This is the BEST book on Systems Thinking I have read so far. My hats off to Donella Meadows for making the principles and truths about the functioning of systems so easily accessible to us by looking at common day-to-day systems that we see or participate in, in light of these principles. The book is such an easy read! We recognize the principles and realize that we have intuitively known and ...
Primer on the Rheumatic Diseases (Primer on Rheumatic Diseases (Klippel))
Definitely worth having if you're interested in Rheumatology
In medical school, rheumatology is one of those subjects that most medical students cannot really conceptualize and end up memorizing a list of autoimmune diseases along with their specific antibodies. This book has the potential to change this view. I read this book while doing a Rheumatology rotation during my senior year and at the time it was considered the Rheumatology Bible by the ...
A Primer of Biblical Greek
N. Clayton Croy
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Company
Succinct and clear!
Clayton Croy has assembled a clear, succinct, and concise Biblical Greek textbook for first-year students. The book is truly a primer, as it strikes the right balance between clarity of thought and avoidance of minutiae. I read this book first, as it is easily understood. For one that teaches Sunday Bible Class, as well as a weekly adult Bible course, I have added this book to my other ...
3D Math Primer for Graphics and Game Development (Wordware Game Math Library)
Jones & Bartlett Publishers
Great, great, great
I beg you: do not try to read *any* 3D Game Programming book without checking out this baby first! Really, unless you are a math major already graduating from college, or a very wise industry professional, this book will be useful. For example, I am a second year college student and I already passed ODE, Linear Algebra and Calculus courses, my university is one of the most wildly recognized in ...
Primer on Kidney Diseases (Greenberg, Primer on Kidney)
Arthur Greenberg MD
Very good Nephrology Book
I think its a very good book for IM residents in general and for those who aspir to become Nephrology fellow in particular. I would highly recommend it to every first year fellow as a starting book and then shift to other books... It is not too detailed and very uptodate and by NKF and best of all it is not $300 ...it only $40. Paper is glossy and figures are good. Enjoy reading !

Prayer Primer : Igniting a Fire Within
People who quote the Bible as flowing from them with power
This book reminds me of buying a whole big tray of baklava and it is all sweet around. You can't say, I would rather choose this over that. It is all sweet. The author has a sweet spirit about him. He is so knowledgeable in the Bible. He is by no means a "Bible thumper", Lord have mercy on them! This author, Thomas Dubay, is saturated in the Bible and you taste the Bible with him in a fresh way ...
C Primer Plus (5th Edition)
Awesome reference book.
C Primer Plus is an oddly written book. It treats its readers as absolute, or extremely novice programmers, yet if you try to read through the book from cover to cover, you could easily be overwhelmed over the amount of content. I wouldn't recommend the book ALONE as a sole source for a newcomer to C, there are better books that make the learning experience less overwhelming. With that said, ...
A Primer on Money, Banking, and Gold (Peter L. Bernstein's Finance Classics)
Peter L. Bernstein
If you want to understand the Fed, read this book.
I was in the midst of studying monetary policy and the related Federal Reserve balance sheet when a good friend of mine suggested I read this book to further my understanding on the subject. Given that I really liked another book written by the author: Against the Gods: The Remarkable Story of Risk, I was very receptive to my friend's recommendation. The book did not disappoint. I was amazed ...
A Primer of Ecology, Fourth Edition
Nicholas J. Gotelli
Sinauer Associates, Inc.
Great First Approach on Ecology
This book is a must for people starting to study ecology. It's short, very well written and clear, concise, not oversimplifying, and it's very nice to read. It has real life examples too. It's true it doesn't go very deep, but it gives you the perfect fundation to go deeper after it, reading Begon for example, which is a good book but gives for granted a lot of concepts. Anyone can read this ...
Introduction to Health Care Delivery: A Primer for Pharmacists
Jones & Bartlett Publishers
New book shouldn't be priced that high
I honestly couldn't get into the book. With the price I paid for a brand new book, I expected more. This primer is definitely that, a primer full of very basic knowledge. For example, my class studied economics and the health care system near the beginning of the semester. When I started to read the chapter in the book, I realized it was nothing more than a review of my economics course ...
