The Official ebay Bible by Jim Griffith

The word "bible" denotes an "authoritative" guide....this book, unfortunately, is anything but. Rather, it is a highly opinionated rant about how things should be done on Ebay, according to Jim Griffith. It is sad when an ebay employee who doesn't understand the buying, selling, and feedback problems of the ordinary ebayer writes an "Official" guide. This should have been called an "Unofficial Opinion". The small disclaimer stating that it is only opinion does nothing to sway the perception that this IS the authoritative guide to ebay. Instead of this drivel, ebay should have taken the time to ask REAL buyers and sellers for input. As it is, they simply let Griff rant, then stamped it with their seal of approval. Anything to make a buck, I guess. This book is a major disappointment.

Great survey, readable, comprehensive

Good book! I'm not an Exchange admin, but I need to understand what the issues are in Exchange and Outlook security. I found the book very helpful in a couple of ways:* covers 5.5. and 2K, even though the title says 2003* covers life cycle issues like archiving and compliance* covers Active Directory and Certificate issuesI was impressed that the book managed to combine enough detail to be valuable to technical users, with clear enough descriptions of the issues to make sense to non-techies.

Simply the best

I maintain several ASP applications with MS SQL backends and with this book I'm able to do things with SQL queries I never thought possible.
This book has a thorough index and great code examples making it a perfect reference manual for solving complex SQL query problems.
This is the only book you'll need for Transact-SQL.
