Everything you wanted to know about UNIX


Yes this book covers just about everything you could want to know about the UNIX os, what every command does and how to use it. The only thing that I would caution potential buyers of this book about is that it should be regarded as a reference only! The title is a little deceiving, this is not really for the begginer or someone who wants to be taught how to use the UNIX maze of commands. It does not provide detailed instructions, only samples. Great resource though!

This is a must have if you want to learn ASP quickly!


I picked up the book a few days ago, and from never have used ASP before, I finished the book in 3 days (I was very eager to get going and was short of time to finish what I wanted to do), and now I easily put together very advanced dynamic userbased websites with connections to databases. Needless to say that I finished my project on time. The book was excellent written and all the information was easy to understand and to learn immediately. I can't say it enough, one of the best programming books I've read since I started programming way back in the 80's on the Amiga. A huge thanks to the authors, it was a literally a lifesaver!

It is also very good at presenting the History of the Sith and its main characters. It has several creatures and species that are very useful to stress your players!!!

Disappoiting


Not very rigorous, often confusing. More quantity than quality.
