Another excellent reference from O'Reilly.

If you want to understand how TCP/IP networks work, both at a practical and theoretical level, this is the book for you. It is well written and covers all practical aspects of managing a modern TCP/IP network. Definitely another O'Reilly book that should be on every network admin's shelf.

What I needed

This is an excellent book and exactly what I needed. I had been looking for a good book that actually tells you how to work with SOAP and give examples in Java and this is the best one I found! Good Job!

The ECMA Spec is More Useful

From its table of contents, this book would seem to be an invaluable resource for vm architects or compiler writers. Unfortunately, the book is wrong in places and the online errata page isn't updated. Also, the explanations aren't as in depth as I would like. This book should be a companion or replacement to the ECMA CIL specification. Sadly, it's neither.

Browser detection - The author's not qualified

Another javascript book, where the author has shown they're not up to the job, I do not own the book, having only perused it, but I've seen lots of people who have read the book and come away deeply confused about how to author scripts due to the authors insistence on "Browser Detection" based on the User or Distributor definable UserAgent strings. This is completely unsafe and should never be used. Please choose another javascript book to learn client-side javascript programming.
