HTML 4 its a diffrent World...


This is a great reference to get up and running with HTML 4.0 quickly. I didn't need to know the why's, where's, and when's, just the how's and this book does that in an easy to follow manner. An inexpensive, concise, and easy to follow reference - just what I was looking for. I'd easily recommend it to anyone.

Java Threads


Book provides basic useful information. Other than that, some of the contrived examples and sample classes are bad and wrong. Some of the stuff will not even work. The utility classes like TargetNotify are not useable. It would be better if they had tried to use them in some sample programs.

Looking for a Good C++ Tutorial for C Programmers?


As a C programmer, I purchased "Thinking in C++" to learn OOP and C++, but I'm sadly disappointed. I find the book very wordy and poorly organized, and the gradeschool-style of large type makes reading it even more difficult. And you can forget about using the book as a reference, as clear definitions are difficult to find. The CD-ROM may be helpful to beginning programmers, but don't expect too much from it. And realize (arrgh) that you have to use Microsoft products exclusively to run the CD! On the plus side, the book contains lots of code examples showing how to use the language attributes, which is very helpful.
If you like a fluffy, narrative style of writing then perhaps you'll like this book, but most readers will find the book to be like wading through molasses.
