Must have for learning and reference


As a long time C++ programmer, I found this book to be neither too hard or too easy. Readers with no programming experience at all might have a harder time with the text, but if you have any kind of programming background, the text will serve you well. As a reference, the text is second to none. Even the DOM reference is one of the best out there.

A Must Have


Did you ever have this problem with your datagrid, in the edit mode, the width of the Boundcolumn textbox automatically became so big that made your table or even your page changed size just to satisfy the stupid textbox. All right, this book even has answers for this kind of questions.

Not for beginners


I am pretty new to JavaScript and so I decided to buy three book to get me started: this one, the Visual Quickstart Guide by Peachpit Press and The official Netscape JavaScript Guide.
I started with the Visual Quickstart Guide to get a basic understanding of JavaScript but soon noticed that I was just copying the scripts in the book and didn't really learn any JavaScript. This is where the Netscape Guide came into play. It took me through everything step by step and I am now able to actually programm my own stuff. I use THIS book mainly to learn the stuff the previous two books didn't cover and also as a reference, one of the really big plusses of the book. Half of the book consists of a reference that lists all the objects, properties, even-handlers and whatnot. Just amazing, has helped me numerous times!
I cannot recommend this book for absolute beginners though. It just doesn't take you through the process of learning step by step.

Windows XP Power Tools - Best of Breed


Windows XP Power Tools is a jewel for advanced and power users of Windows XP, both the home and professional versions. It is well organized and can be read from cover-to-cover or by individual sections. Each section covers the topics in detail with excellent examples and illustrations.
Windows XP Power Tools is not just a rehash of vendor documentation or other authors that leave out important information. Rather, each topic is presented in enough detail to be complete and really useful.
To me, a good technical computer book allows the reader to stand on the shoulders of the author to get a jump-start on rapidly evolving technologies. The author, Jim Boyce seems to have broad shoulders on which to stand.
If you are an advanced computer user and want good, focused information on Windows XP, then get this book.
