Title: 33 Days to Online Profits: Powerful Internet marketing strategy, tips and website promotion secrets for any product or service you sell
Authors: Yanik Silver, Jim Edwards
The only thing I can't understand about '33 Days to Online Profits' is why Yanik Silver and Jim Edwards were willing to reveal everything they spent years learning. But I'm mighty glad they did.
I have had an Internet business for over 6 years. Yet I found secrets in this book that blew me away. I made a few changes in my strategies that came right out of this book, and it made a remarkable difference in my bank account.
It's obvious to me why Yanik and Jim have become such Internet successes. They 'walk the talk' and now you can too.
If you are planning to start an Internet business, then you have just struck gold in '33 Days.' The step-by-step approach is easy to follow. If you start on Day 1 and act on every tip and follow all the detailed how-to discussions right through to the end, you can't help but get results. What a complete guide book this is!
If you already have an Internet business, I'm sure you will find some valuable tidbit that will pay off for you. For me it was the discussion of how to set up affiliate and JV relationships, and how to use ezines to promote traffic to my Website. What will it be for you?
My business is now thriving like never before, and I owe it all to Yanik Silver and Jim Edwards. Not a day goes by that I don't earn back the price of this book many times over.

Title: A+ Certification All-in-One Exam Guide
Publisher: McGraw-Hill Osborne Media
Authors: Michael Meyers, Scott Jernigan
A great book that helped me to be A+ Certified. This book dont only give you the test specific info, it reaches beyond that with historical and also beyond A+ material that helps you understand how things really work.
The book is written in a way that made me wantto keep on reading, and it made me understand what happens behind the curtains in the world of hard and software. It makes learning easy. This was especially important because I am swedish, and it is quite hard to read all this information in a language other than your native one.
If you are going to get any book for the exams, get this.

Title: Sams Teach Yourself SQL in 10 Minutes, Third Edition
Authors: Ben Forta
I was learning how to use ColdFusion and I quickly realized that I needed to have a good knowledge of SQL to succeed with CF. I picked up SQL in Ten Minutes, read it on the train, and came back with the ability to code basic queries and post informaition to the database. Every concept is clearly explained, but there are (thankfully) no long-winded examples to follow, so you get what you need and get out. I also recommend it as a reference book, although it does not explain every keyword in SQL, such as "ONCE." But it's small and will not take up a lot of space on your desk or briefcase.

Title: About Face 2.0: The Essentials of Interaction Design
Authors: Alan Cooper, Robert M. Reimann
This book is the work of genius. It is the best book I've ever seen on WHAT a GUI should do. Unlike other books which focus on how to arrange your controls or whether to use a combobox or radiobutton for xyz, this book addresses the basic design and considerations of a user interface.
This book is not for idiots. Anyone who would thumb this book either CAN NOT and WILL NOT appreciate what it means to make an application usable.
What this book does best is come up with a language for the elements common to every day programs. Soverign vs Transient apps, GUI excise (making users do needless repetative tasks), and the "interaction design" concept which is an analysis of the entire user experience with an app.
This book should be a must read for any serious GUI developer. Its what comes after you've mastered the use of basic controls and GUI programming, and want to go further into make your app a joy to use.
