The Best Book you can Buy for begginers.

All right my name is Troy and im 14 years old. I start off with saying that this is the best book to buy if have never even programmed before. This book gives you the best start you can get..Dont buy books like "C for dumbies" by googin or whatever his name is. I seriously reccomend this book. It starts of with standard I/o like printf() and scanf() et cetera...THen goes on to teach you data structers, loops, heap memory, intermediate i/o, and making your own functions. It teaches you how to organize your code and make it more easier to read. The writer puts everything in a CLEAR easy to read way, unlike other books that explain things in a very difficult manner and don't put much depth into it or make jokes to get the point through like your stupid. After this book I reccomend "The C Programming Language" by Kernighan and Ritchie. Buy this book and you won't regret it...Thats a fact. Just don't think that your a master at C after you read it. Practice will make you a better programmer.!

Title: Object-Oriented Software Construction (Book/CD-ROM) (2nd Edition)
Publisher: Prentice Hall PTR
Authors: Bertrand Meyer
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5

Few, _VERY_ few authors are as knowledgeable, talented, and fun to read as Mr. Meyer. Compared to the dry, repetitive books by the Rational people, this is a source of relief! _Not_ dogmatic at all, definitely not Eiffel centered, although he uses the language as the notation throughout the book, BECAUSE that's the way he proposes to avoid analysis-to-design-to-implementation-gaps. It's worth every minute reading it, IMHO.

Title: Principles of Color Design
Publisher: Wiley
Authors: Wucius Wong
Rating: 2/5
Customer opinion - 2 stars out of 5

This is not the best book out there. The first section of the 5 section book goes into form and shape theory, which although useful in design, is just filler to give the book more pages. The color theory sections are fairly basic. I think there are better books out there, especially for the price.

Title: Essential System Administration, Third Edition
Publisher: O'Reilly
Authors: Æleen Frisch
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5

I am fairly new to Linux, and started by purchasing a number of O'Reilly's other titles on Linux. Some of them were very good, some of them not so good. While I have two working Linux boxes on my company network, I still had many unanswered questions about why things worked the way they did. I initially avoided this book because it was for Unix system administration, however, in a fit of desperation I purchased it and it has been *the* most useful general purpose book I have purchased for using Linux.
Certainly there are a number of specific purpose books that cover many of the topics presented here in greater detail, however, for an overview of the entire system--how it works and why it works the way it does this book is indespensable.
All you Linux users out there should get this book!
