Keep up the good work

I have read most of Mr. Troelson's books. Chapters include do-it-yourself, clear examples. The book covers .NET platform and gradually develops into more complex chapters.
I have read the COM ATL and the VB.NET books as well. Excellent and please keept the good work Mr. Troelsen.

User Stories Demystified

User Stories Demystified - As you leaf through Mike Cohn's new book "User Stories Applied", the first thing you will experience is a dramatic sense of relief. A certain calm will come over you because at last you have in your hands a very clear, succinct, step-by-step view into the what, when, where, how, and why of user stories. Mike's delivery of this material is richly simple in that he manages to sift through the many worries and controversies that surround the role of user stories in an agile project environment and takes us to the nuggets. At the same time, he sparks the fundamentals with a variety of suggestions for implementation based on his extensive experience. In various XP teams in which I have worked, an early challenge of the team had always been around the ability of the team to shift from requirements and design documents and detailed test plans to user stories. Writing them was tortuous; later interpretation of them felt fuzzy. With Mike's guidance, we would have known not only how to write, estimate, prioritize, and test our stories, we would have also had ample guidance on who should be paying attention to what in each step of the stories' lifecycle. If you are beginning a new project, release, sprint, or iteration, don't move another step without distributing Mike's book across the team as pre-requisite reading. They'll all thank you for it.

not well-organized

Absolutely great practical book about Struts 1.1.I can see it used as a tutorial as well as a reference. Easy to read and well-organized. Includes very useful diagrams and clarifications. Covers some of the evolvement of Struts 1.0 into 1.1. Warning: this is not a J2EE book. I would strongly suggest getting acquainted with servlets and JSP beforehand.This is not a book about software architecture either. In fact, most of the design questions covered are lacking depth if not directly related to Struts.
