Excellent book on C# and .NET

First, I would like to thank the Author, Andrew Troelsen for writing such an excellent book on C#.I have read several books on C#, but this book I am reading word by word, sentence by sentence. I liked the way author has introduce new keywords/concept by enhancing the existing code and then explaing the facts about the code (Why and How). The Author has taken a full advantage of his experience in teaching. He has structured this book accordingly.
The author has mentioned, this book is for the developer who already has some expousre to modern object language, but I feel this book can help beginners who wants to learn C# and .NET technology.
If you want to learn more about C# or enhance your existing knowledge, this is the book. I highly recommend this book.

Title: Practical Neural Network Recipes in C++
Publisher: Morgan Kaufmann
Authors: Masters

Great intro to neural networks -- Many examples

When I received Pratical Neural Network Recipes in C++, I was pleasantly surprised on how easy it was to follow. Even though I have an extensive calculus background, I believe almost anyone with a background in statistics or college algebra can follow along. As far as content, Masters has shown his ability to explain a complex subject without making it overly complex. I was happy that Masters did not get too in depth with mathmatical proofs. Instead, he sticks to the point -- how to make artificial neural networks that aid in everything from pattern recognition to stock forecasting. He also explains several different kinds of networks such as genetic, hybrid, and multilayer feedforward, and the various benefits and pitfalls of each. The Neural program that comes with the book was also of great help (It's on a 3 1/2 floppy, not a 5 1/4). I recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn about NN's.

Irreplaceable resource for spreadsheet developers.
No wasted space or filler material. In fact it could easily have doubled in size.

Leading edge

Ground breaking approach. Cary takes the use of wait interface to new level. Very well explained with examples. It is good to see much of the information from many of his whiet papers have been transferred into the book.
