A truly wonderful experience....


I wanted to write this note to thank you for your book "Adobe Photoshop CS - The Art of Photographing Women". It is phenomenal! I have followed your writings in Photoshop User magazine, and have admired, and adopted, many of your techniques for retouching that Scott Kelby had included in his book on Photoshop for Digital Photographers. I have been looking forward to the release of your book and I have to say that the wait has been well worth it. I especially like the information you put forth on archiving the image files, your pre-postproduction and color correction actions. Your chapter on lighting, though, really inspired me. I was amazed at how much I learned from this chapter, even though I have been a photographer for the past 34 years. Your explanation, and illustration, of the process you went through in lighting the fashion photo was by far the best, and most informative I have ever come across. It opened my eyes to a whole new way of seeing light. I have to add that I have only begun to focus on fashion, portrait, and beauty photography the last couple of years; I have primarily been a nature photographer since I was 12 years old. Thank you so much for this book. I truly believe that it will help me move to the next level with my photography. I look forward to putting your suggestions into practice, and continuing this incredible journey that is being a photographer.

Disagree with the bad review


This book has a lot of good info in it and its all right there at your fingertips. One of the main reasons for a book is just that. Many resources are available on the Internet but they have to be found and kept track of. This book puts a lot together so you don't have to do the search work. I like it!

The best book on JavaServer Faces


This is the best book on the market to date on JSF. This book is all about getting you up to speed with this new Java technology and being productive. If you are a J2EE web developer, you will be able to use and reuse Java components off the shelf in your Java application. The book clearly shows you how to employ JSF user interface components and also explains why and how to employ these new JSF features compared to using JSP. I strongly recommend that you do all the JSF examples in each chapter. It's a very good book on a great subject.

The perfect companion for any web page developer


I've been a website designer, developer and creator for years, and there's nothing better than this book. I learned and create all of my pages in straight code, and for those of you that do, you should have this book on your shelves, right near your computer.
This isn't a book you read cover to cover. It's more like a dictionary, with clear, easy to understand directions and explainations for everything covered. It even tells you what problems exist between different browsers if you use certain coding, as well as has the new coding for 4.0 browsers. There's even some explaination of JavaScript and DHTML. But for those, you really should get those books . . .
All in all, this book has been a great reference for creating websites, and has allowed me the freedom of not having to REMEMBER every detail of code, just where to find it if I need it!!
