Title: HTML Utopia: Designing Without Tables Using CSS
Publisher: SitePoint
Authors: Dan Shafer
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5

Dan Shafer is truly a guru. From the first day I landed this book on my shelf, my already enlightened eyes were opened wider to CSS and standards-based web design. Within days, I reinvented my company site from a patchwork of standards and usability blemishes to an all CSS/content-and-presentation-separated site.
Thank you Dan and thank you Sitepoint for another great release.

A must have...

This is the most useful book I've ever read. It has everything for every level of programmer. If you are just starting to learn C, read this book. If you are simply trying to brush up on your coding tactics, read this book. It explains all of the parts of the language in a concise, meaningful way, not in the twisted and cryptic fashion of most programming books. If you are the least bit interested in programming, purchase this book

OWI explained as it should be

A lot of people have been talking about monitoring and tuning using the "wait interface". There are too many sites around with bits and pieces of the necessary information, but up until now there wasn't a complete source on the subject.

Having used Oracle since 1984, I have read just about every advanced book on Oracle databases. This one is right at the top of the list for anyone wanting to learn how to accurately monitor and tune Oracle databases.

Here at last is a single, complete and authoritative reference for all to use. And what I like the best: it is not restricted to a single version of Oracle. Simply the best reference right now.

No coverage of multi-threaded servelet model

I was dissapointed that there was no mention about multi-threaded servlet model at all. Also, the chapter on Internationization has little to do with Java Servlets.
