Why can't programmers write?

The language, PERL, is hideously syntactically challenged. This book doesn't shed one ray of light on the language.

Easy to use scripts, but doesn't teach you Javascript

This book presents some Javascript basic concepts and offers code for some of Javascripts most common uses such as rollovers, cycling banners, and detecting browser plug-ins, etc. These are easy to use even for a beginner such as myself. The disappointment with this book is that it does not really teach you how to write your own Javascripts. This book is designed for those who want to quickly enliven their pages by using some of the scripts presented.

Great Starter

Great place to start learning about DW. The author builds the concepts layer upon layer. Very easy to follow the progression. Once you'e finished this book, then move on to Ralph's Lifecycle Toolkit for some nitty-gritty examples and much more about building data marts into datawarehouses.

Title: Seize the Work Day: Using the Tablet PC to Take Total Control of Your Work and Meeting Day
Publisher: New Academy Publishing
Authors: Michael Linenberger

Great resource for your work group

This is exactly the resource I wish that my company had available when we were adapting Tablet PC's...
Michael Linenberger has done an excellent job of summarizing the most important software available for your work day productivity and provides "real-life" examples to integrate different solutions into your office or home.
This is also one of the few volumes I have seen that does an exhaustive exploration of Franklin Covey's Tablet Planner software, as well as Microsoft OneNote.
Highly recommended.
