Taming Java Threads
Taming Java Threads
von Allen Holub
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 31,90

2.0 von 5 Sternen You can't use the code unless you advertise the book, 12. Juli 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Taming Java Threads (Taschenbuch)
Don't get me wrong, this is a terrific book packed full of useful information and code to match. But Holub has not put the code in the public domain and if you use any code out of the book it must be accompanied by what amounts to an advertisement for the book in your program's About box. While this may be marginally acceptable for shareware developers, it kills the usefulness of the book in corporate development environments. If Holub removed this restriction I'd give the book 5 stars.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A magnificently concise introduction to a powerful language, 24. Juni 2000
Publishers should take note that despite the relative brevity of this book, it remains one of the best selling programming books year after year. And, more importantly, it accomplishes its goal of teaching the language without being repetitive or condescending (or inaccurate) like so many other programming books. This should be your learning guide for Perl, <I>Programming Perl</I> (the infamous 'Camel' book) should be your reference, and <I>Mastering Regular Expressions</I> should be how you dive off the deep end!

5.0 von 5 Sternen My desert island book series, 24. Juni 2000
If you could design your own Java reference series, what would you include? How about:
- An plain English explanation of each class and method.
- Sample code for every class and method.
- Intelligent organization that enables you to find a given class or method quickly.
- A comprehensive, well-organized index that thinks like you do.
This summarizes the content of this book and the other two in the series and explains why they are the three books I wouldn't dream of programming in Java without. (I've been a professional Java developer since 1996.) Buy the book and make your life easier.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Expand your programming vocabulary...difficult but worth it, 24. Juni 2000
This is a book that you need to chew on for a while and which will take a while to digest once swallowed. It will, however, turn into pure programming muscle as payback for all your effort!
This is an academic treatise (it started out as a Master's thesis) and reads like one. But as you read you'll find yourself identifying with some of the patterns that you've unknowingly used in your own code. And you'll start seeing how you could have used other patterns. And before you know it, your approach to programming has changed and you are able to focus more on the domain-specific issues rather than getting caught up in the need to continuously re-invent the proverbial wheel. And the world looks a little bit brighter.
Any book that does that for you deserves 5 stars regardless of how dry it is.


Perl and CGI for the World Wide Web (Visual QuickStart Guides)
Perl and CGI for the World Wide Web (Visual QuickStart Guides)
von Elizabeth Castro
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent introduction to CGI programming with Perl, 27. September 1999
How much do I like this book? So much that I plug it on the Web page for my own book, "The CGI/Perl Cookbook". This is the best introduction to CGI programming with Perl that I've seen and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking to get their feet wet with CGI. My congratulations to the author on a job well done!


The Table Saw Book (A Fine Woodworking Book)
The Table Saw Book (A Fine Woodworking Book)
von Kelly Mehler
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen A must-have book for all table saw owners, 5. Oktober 1998
Someone should convince all table saw manufacturers to include a copy of this book (and/or the matching video) with their saws. The book covers everything from alignment to maintenance and covers safety, usage, and a variety of jigs. Mehler is enjoyable to read and obviously knows his stuff. Especially recommended for anyone buying their first saw.

Thinking in Java (Prentice Hall (engl. Titel))
von Bruce Eckel
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen THE book to buy for learning Java (or brushing up), 16. Februar 1998
I wish I'd had this book when I first learned Java...I've looked at almost every Java book there is and own about 20. I can honestly say that this is the best book on the market for learning the language and also one of the best for polishing your skills if you already know the basics. The bottom line: If you program in Java then this book should be sitting by your keyboard.


The Death of Distance: How the Communications Revolution Will Change Our Lives
The Death of Distance: How the Communications Revolution Will Change Our Lives
von Frances Cairncross
  Gebundene Ausgabe

4.0 von 5 Sternen Distance will die, individualism will not, 16. Januar 1998
Unlike the reader from Canada, I believe that Ms. Cairncross' assertion that distance is dying is quite accurate. The Internet, and particularly the Web, removes physical distance and allows people to communicate with each other in a way that is completely independent of where they live. It does not, however, remove cultural, emotional, intellectual, or spiritual distance. For this reason the advance of modern communications methods will never result in the homogeneous society many seem to fear. Our individualism will remain intact but our exposure to the world around us will continue to increase exponentially (both to our benefit and detriment). Ms. Cairncross has accurately grasped the true impact of the Internet and those who are able to leverage this impact will be the ones who guide the future of the medium.
