My Portrait Bible


It is amazing what you can do with Photoshop and this book, and sooooo easily!!! I was able to take a digital head and shoulders photo of a woman and soften the completion, reduce the size of the nose, brighten the eyes, whiten the teeth, remove the background and replace it with a portrait studio type back drop, fix the hair and all within minutes. I am not expert by any means, but I was able to produce and expert looking portrait. I'm amazed with myself! Thanks Scott, this book is wonderful!

I Liked This Book a Whole Lot


It's amazing how polarized the opinions on this book are. I personally consider it a landmark book, but that's almost irrelevant given the controversy created by the reviews I've seen here.
I've read this book when I was already an experienced programmer and I can say it was truly inspirational. I can imagine it can scare beginners, or render the snooty ones angry.
I think the best way to figure out what *you* would think of the book is to take a look at it yourself. This is now easy because the full text is now online - you can find it easily by searching "sicp" with google. The current address is mitpress dot mit dot edu slash sicp.

Author Rebuttal


Seven expert technical reviewers from VectorESP, ECC, Osborne, and Citrix reviewed the Chapter 12 content, and we are very confident in its technical accuracy and the separation between the UNIX and Windows content. On the Datastor options, we discussed all available options (including Oracle, MSDE, and DB2) on page 359, but we chose to provide a step-by-step guide only for SQL, since Citrix claims that over 80% of the datastores in the field today are on SQL. The advantage of picking only one of the choices for a step-by-step in-depth discussion was that this allowed readers a true in-depth look, rather than just a brush by look that could have been provided if we tried to cover all the choices. Additionally, we discussed the datastor design options in depth in the design chapters of the book, which outline a very rigorous and strict approach to all aspects of the solution.As future reviews will attest to, we are very confident that this book is unique and much more in depth than the other guides when it comes to networking, security, and disaster recovery aspects of Server-Based Computing.
