Title: Internet Texas Hold'em: Winning Strategies from an Internet Pro
Publisher: Dimat Enterprises Inc

Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Great book for the beginning player!!!

This book is a complete reference for limit holdem. All the important poker concepts are included. It is a good book to go back to from time to time for reference. The author is not a professional writer so the book is written in, shall I say, an uninteresting style. The hand examples cover both high and low limits; however not enough analysis is devoted to how to play differently in different limits. If you are a beginner, this book will take several reading for it to make sense to you. Even then, you need some game experience to really understand it. All in all, this is a very good book and I recommend it.

Great Book for people like me who know how but not why.

I really enjoyed this book and it has been a great help to me in my work and the general use of computers. I have known how to use the computer as a tool to help me in my work, but now my work is becomming computers due to evolving system technology. I had to have a good place to start to learn just what this book offers. It is explaned very simply and easy to understand. It's a great jumping off point to get a person ready for the next step. I plan to recommend it to my co-workers since most all of us are in the same boat.

Title: Applied Cryptography: Protocols, Algorithms, and Source Code in C, Second Edition
Publisher: Wiley
Authors: Bruce Schneier

Customer opinion - 2 stars out of 5
Fails to explore the mathematics behind crypto

Schneier's book is a surprisingly down-to-earth encyclopedia of the data scrambling technology which secures electronic communication worldwide, and which the US Government has tried for years to keep in the bag. Understanding cryptography is a must for anyone interested in the technology behind privacy on-line, and Schneier's book is the best source there is.
