Customer opinion - 3 stars out of 5
Good reference guide, but lacking in detail


I think this book is amazing. I have a little experience with dhtml before I bought it but this book is a must have. It not only covers dhtml, but html and javascript. Compatability issues of each tag with different versions of IE and NN are also a plus. I also saved money by buying one book for these three subjects instead of three.

Title: What Video Games Have to Teach Us About Learning and Literacy

Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
For cross disciplinarians it ties in some solid leads


It digs deeper in the trench than Prensky to suggest why learning is intimately tied to games (hybrid learning the philosopher Sterelny calls it) and gives those of us who are not ludologists links between cognitive science and 3d entertainment media that are verifiable.
I am all for prescriptive work that ties in the above and above all reads well not dryly. I read this just after Bartle's book (which is interesting from another angle, especially on experiential realism, but not so polemic) and if you are interested in this tangent (you thought it was wrong but..) then I think you will enjoy this book.

An excellent text to learn E and M from


I would actually rate this book closer to 4 and 1/2 stars than five, but it definately deserves higher than 4. With that said, I thought the book was an excellent text. I used this text for two semesters of E and M as a Junior undergraduate physics major, and found it to be well written and well organized. I was able to learn the material without the need of lecture(when needed.) I think that Griffiths is a very readable author. With that, I mean that I did not have to read statements multiple times to find out what he meant. The book flowed and I thought the order that it followed was well suited. I would like to have seen more examples, but overall this is one of the best texts I have come across.

DVD is worthless


The content of the book is very good and detail. However, the DVD content which consists of 2-3 minute movie clips on the chapter objects is a waste of time. The DVD could have been better being packed with sample tests, vocabolary lists, and a HTML Version of the BOOK.
