An excellent reference book


A great reference book that makes it easy to follow the Windows interface standards. Microsoft has come a long way with their user interfaces, and this book lets you learn from their efforts.

Great resource


This is a brilliant book, easy to assimilate and quick to progress through.If you are new to SQL it tells you all the background you need to know, if you have done any programming previously you will find it easy to use and really informative. My copy has post-it-notes sticking out of the top with useful hints written on them. It has really enthused me.It has great sections for the DBA too, tips on improving performance and security etc. Truly Fabulous, I love it!

Title: Learning the bash Shell, 3rd Edition (Nutshell Handbooks)

Highly pedagogic and enjoyable introduction to Bash/Unix


I review the book from a Unix beginners perspective. I havent finished reading the book yet, but I just cant resist sharing my positive feelings about it. It might very well be true that the book lacks real world examples, as the other reviewers point out. But let me balance this criticism by highliting great strengths that the book has (at least for newcomers to Unix like me). Picking up this book, I had very little knowledge of Unix and I had not read any book on shell programming before. I used to be very sceptical about working with shells having grown up with the easiness of use of GUIs like MS Windows. Thanks to this book I am now dying to get my hands on Linux to start using the Bash shell (for now, I am using Cygwin under NT). The book answers all the questions I used to have about Unix as I was programming on the Solaris platform. Because of this book, I am now deeply fascinated by the simplicity and power of Unix! I want to send my sincere gratitude to the authors!

Don't buy it!


This book is totally useless for beginner.When you read it ,you will feel very confused.There are not enough examples and the explanation is not clear.If you really want to learn C,I recommend you the book which called 'Beginning C' by Ivor Honor.'Practical C Programming' is totally useless ! Don't buy it!
