Rating: 4/5
Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
Beginners find source to learn foundations

Perry knows how to clearly explain the C language and keep the readers interest. The chapters are concise and not overloaded. The language is very clear. The only problem is that he could have given a few mpre examples. Still deserves 5 stars for clarity.

Used the database connection pooling

Great book. I needed an example of database connection pooling for my servlet. I skimmed the book, downloaded the code from website, and had a working program in a day. I hope I can take one of Marty Hall's classes one day, because he sounds like a great teacher.

Finally, a CSS book that puts it all together

I've been using Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) for a little over a year on my personal website. Like many CSS beginners, my original site design was boxy and unappealing. Unhappy with the way my site looked, I soon stumbled upon the "CSS Zen Garden" website which showcased professional CSS web design. I was blown away by the possibilities, but I had difficulty bridging the gap between what I saw on screen and my reference-like CSS books. In that respect, this book, "The Zen of CSS Design," is a dream come true. It's the first and only book I've read that combines graphic arts know-how with CSS layouts. Written in plain english, the book deconstructs and analyzes the best designs from the most inspirational CSS website on the internet. In short, the book exists to make beautiful CSS designs possible.

While the book focuses on graphic design for beginners and up, a working knowledge of CSS and probably Photoshop is required before you can really get into the book. The text is not a tutorial in the mechanics of CSS, and frankly, thank goodness. Those subjects have been written to death in a number of other books, and their inclusion would have made this book a drag to read. No, "the Zen of CSS Design" is lean and straight to the point. I finished it over a single weekend, and I immediately started work on a comprehensive site redesign. It's the best book Iv've bought this year, and I whole-heartedly recommend it.

My Clients Love It

I am a certified consultant for this software package and many of my clients rave about this book. They find it to be an excellent compliment to the other types of ACT! training and support available to them.
