A MUST-HAVE for any online business!!!

This book is one of the most magnificently written books I've ever read. It's written in such an easy to understand way, and in simple terms so that EVERYONE can understand it! There are tons of helpful tips in how to design the best website ever. As part of a Women's World-wide organization, as well as an Entrepreneur, this book helped me to take another 'look' at my website and do some serious make-overs! I will continue to use this book on a weekly basis to keep referencing back to it for some website pointers for my site @ http://www.aei.dli.com.If you don't own this book - buy it now. It will definitely become one of the most valuable items in your home office!

Best programming book...

As an engineer and a professional I have been using programs for well on 20 years now. Having used a range of languages for different tasks I finally came back to Fortran, a langage I had not used since college.I have found the book excellent in every respect both as a tool to re learn the language and as a reference work. The organisation of the book and the presentation is excellent.

A 'must-have' book for the networkers

Just had a brief read thru. It covers extensively on EGP & BGP. Excellent coverage on IPv6 & multicast, which can't be found elsewhere. Good book for CCIE candidates! By having the Vol I & II books, you can cover almost all in TCP/IP routing.

Difficult to follow for beginners; missing key information.

Certainly this is not the book if you don't have knowledge in operating systems. The matter is organized in a crisp fashion. Most of the places the material is not clear: in page 91 the sentence "It then fetches the page just referenced into the page frame just freed, changes the map...". In the example that follows this sentence, the steps are not arranged in a sequence. To understand this example, the better way is to keep a pen and a paper and workout. Who want to keep a pen and a paper than understanding the matter easily from the book? Another example: in page 103, 3rd para: "If the virtual page number is present..., the same way as it would be from the page table itself". Unfortunately the author has not explained read-only pages etc. while explaining the diagrams 3-11 or 3-12. As a final example, in page replacement algorithms (starts at page # 107), the concept of how the operating system identifies the required location in the secondary memory is not explained.
If you have some good knowledge in OS then certainly it is a good book to improve your breadth of understanding.
