Title: Programming in Ada 95 (2nd Edition)
Publisher: Addison-Wesley Professional
Authors: John Barnes
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
A great learning aid.


I learned Ada 83 years ago with the help of an earlier version of this book. I have recently been continuing this pattern with Ada 95. Mr. Barnes does a great job explaining the subject matter, without getting bogged down in minutiae. The code examples and exercises are also quite helpful. I highly recommend this book.

The Best Lego Mindstorms Book I've Read


I am a teacher in the Midwest and I run an after school robotics team for around 20 5th & 6th graders. We use the Lego Mindstorm RIS kits in our club. After using the ideas from the Constructopedia that comes with each Mindstorm kit, I started looking to other areas for inspiration and ideas. What Ben Erwin's book offers is more than just a "How to" synopsis of each creation. Instead, he includes introductions, inspirations, building designs, programming [in multiple languages], and extension ideas for each project. I've bought a few of the other available Mindstorm robotic books in the past and most were either 'way over my head' or 'very simplistic'. This is definitely the perfect book for any teacher or professor who uses the Mindstorms kits in their class instruction. It is also perfect for any parent or family who creates using the Mindstorm kit in their home! As a bonus, I also believe that it is the first Mindstorm book that is printed in full color!

the information is not derived from the author's expertise


I wanted a book that would explain the basic concepts and show the progressive changes from the telephone to the present hardware,software and its influence .In nearly every sphere this book fell short.After much searching and a bit of luck, i did find :ANATOMY OF TELECOMMUNICATIONS by Tom Smith and ABC TeleTraing ,Inc. In less than 160 pages the author was able to do what this book and its many pages could not .
