Eat Right 4 Your Type: The Individualized Diet Solution: The Individualized Diet Solution to Staying Slim
Eat Right 4 Your Type: The Individualized Diet Solution: The Individualized Diet Solution to Staying Slim
von Dr. Peter J. D'Adamo
  Gebundene Ausgabe
Preis: EUR 25,35

4.0 von 5 Sternen Sensible, interesting, needs clinical testing, 1. Mai 2000
D'Adamo's advice is sound throughout. There's no doubt that following any of the diets, for most people, would still offer superior nutrition and balance than 95% of Americans get every day. However, there's precious little clinical evidence in this book to justify his general ideas. I have followed the appropriate diet for my type and found it to be helpful. But I'd like to see a controlled study with at least 100 people in each group over a few years - hopefully, he's doing this now. One group follows a sensible balance plan; another group follows the specific diet for their type. If his theories and speculation are correct, the test group will have spectacular improvements in their health and fitness over a majority of the control group. But, still, it's sound advice despite the lack of empirical evidence; the anecodotal evidence is strong, and naturopathy is about the individual's own response to different inputs.


Dave Barry's Book of Bad Songs

5.0 von 5 Sternen A slight, perfectly hilarious little work, 25. April 2000
This tiny book has more good lines and can't-breathe-cuz-I'm-laughing-too-hard bits than any of his larger collections. It's a hoot!

The Remorseful Day
The Remorseful Day
von Colin Dexter
  Gebundene Ausgabe

4.0 von 5 Sternen Missing some pieces, but excellent (spoiler), 25. April 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Remorseful Day (Gebundene Ausgabe)
It's hard to see the end of Morse after all these years. He seems eternal, but his habits catch up with him. The TV portrayals have been so brilliant that I can't get Thaw out of my mind, but Dexter obviously moved the character closer to Thaw, as well.
There are some loose ends and inevitable at-loose-ends feelings in this book. I compare it to the deaths of other great detectives, like Poirot, who instead of leaving with a great bang, simply fade away, with notes discovered later that help explain quite what happened.


Real World Adobe GoLive 4
Real World Adobe GoLive 4
von Jeff Carlson
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen Responding to previous review (below), 16. April 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Real World Adobe GoLive 4 (Taschenbuch)
As the co-author of this title, I wanted to respond to the review below. The reviewer writes, "assumes the user understands and has used all the tools or has experience creating web sites." We agree! This anonymous person in D.C. dinged our book for this, but we hope that people won't expect this to be a step-by-step tutorial of the program.
Instead, we delve deeply into all the basic, intermediate, and advanced features, assuming the reader has some knowledge of HTML (not extensive) and some knowledge of how the Web works (again, not extensive). This book is aimed at folks who use the program for production, and who are moving to it as a tool to help them do their job.
The book that the reviewer below from D.C. needs is Molly Holzschlag and Stephen Romaniello's title "Mastering Adobe GoLive 4" (ISBN 0782126049) which is aimed at people with little or no knowledge of building Web sites with any program or using HTML.
I hope the review below doesn't discourage anyone from buying our title who is looking for solid, production-oriented, detailed tips. The book has illustrations and screen captures on almost every page. (A few sections that are more about background issues, like FTP, are a little heavier on text. But our "basics" section has several illustrations per page. Our Advanced section on using Actions has step-by-step examples with illustrations, too.)
You can see a sample chapter of the book at our Web site and at the publisher's Web site.


Amazon.com: Get Big Fast
Amazon.com: Get Big Fast
von Robert Spector
  Gebundene Ausgabe

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fair, accurate portrayal of early years and excitement, 5. April 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Amazon.com: Get Big Fast (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Robert Spector has written a very fair and interesting account of how Jeff Bezos recruited and motivated a crack team of enormously talented, hardworking individuals into working vast amounts of time in creating something really new that benefitted consumers and transformed the book industry - and helped create the new economy. Spector's book is not money or number focused, which is a relief. There's been an infinite amount of that kind of reporting. His book is about the culture and the thrill of reinventing the world. The outcome of this new economy is still up in the air. But there's no doubt that Amazon.com started the revolution and contains to be the flag bearer for it. (A disclaimer: I was an early and brief - and happy - employee at Amazon.com, and I can vouch for Spector having captured the mood and excitement of the place during my time there.)


The Road to Mars: A Post-Modem Novel
The Road to Mars: A Post-Modem Novel
von Eric Idle
  Gebundene Ausgabe
Preis: EUR 22,68

5.0 von 5 Sternen Bloody brilliant! And good sci-fi to boot., 1. März 2000
Eric Idle's Road to Mars is bloody brilliant! Holy cow. Ithought it would be farce and nothing but (which I was looking forwardto). Instead, it's a sensitive, multilayered, real science-fiction story with a framing device and lots of points of interest. A planet gets blown up. Robots are frozen to the outside of spaceships. Truly realistic visions of the future (including very slow space travel) make it seem like, well, like what tomorrow will be more or less like, instead of what Star Trek paints it as. Good sex scenes, even, or at least hilarious ones. Highly recommended!


Database Nation: The Death of Privacy in the 21st Century (Hors Coll Us)
Database Nation: The Death of Privacy in the 21st Century (Hors Coll Us)
von Simson Garfinkel
  Gebundene Ausgabe

5.0 von 5 Sternen A must read for every American, 27. Februar 2000
Why every American? Because, as Garfinkel points, out Europeans are better protected than we are. In every way, on virtually every page of the book, Garfinkel shows not only how our private information is being used without our knowledge, consent, or ability to correct it, but how it is being associated. In fact, I would argue that his collection of details of how the smallest pieces of your personal, financial, medical, and employment history can be connected easily by businesses to deny you credit, a job, or insurance makes the strongest case for regulation.
The kind of regulation Garfinkel argues is necessary - and which mirrors existing laws in the EU that American companies flaunt over the Web in their dealings with EU citizens - would provide the right kinds of control and redress for citizens without requiring government involvement and ownership of data.
(One of the odd recurring points in the book is that Garfinkel views it as a missed opportunity that a monolithic data center wasn't built in the 60s to collate all individual information. I see his point, but imagine if Nixon had that resource at his disposal? Even without it, he had people's tax returns pulled. I may, perhaps, misunderstand Garfinkel's message there, as he felt a central storage point would have provided a nationwide opt-out control for individuals and the use of their data by any company.)
It's fascinating reading and a relatively quick read for a nonfiction title. As I read it, I had prickles at the back of my neck as I discovered how my own information is being used without my knowledge. (Ever heard of the MIB? Not Men In Black - read the book...it's almost as insidious.)
Database Nation paints a picture of the dangers of leaving our lives in data in the hands of business instead of our own hands. Hopefully, technology and policy will meet politics for a solution described in his book providing the kind of ownership and rights we need.


Amateur Sugar Maker: 20th Anniversary Edition
Amateur Sugar Maker: 20th Anniversary Edition
von Noel Perrin
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 14,04

5.0 von 5 Sternen Beautiful gem rooted in the present, 11. Dezember 1999
A real gem on how Noel Perrin started sugaring from his own trees. He's revised the book over 20 years, so he's learned from his own mistakes and successes. He has some pithy commentary on Thoreau's costs of cabin making versus his own, as well. And did you know that milk (just a drop) will calm a roiling boil?


Weaving the Web: The Original Design and Ultimate Destiny of the World Wide Web by Its Inventor
Weaving the Web: The Original Design and Ultimate Destiny of the World Wide Web by Its Inventor
von Tim Berners-Lee
  Gebundene Ausgabe

5.0 von 5 Sternen Open, amusing, insightful, 11. Dezember 1999
What's nice about Weaving the Web is that Tim Berners-Lee quite openly discusses how parallel thinking by other individuals led to some of his developments and how his attitude towards more openness and decentralization was met with incomprehension by all concerned. His thinking was of the rising tide floats all boats school, while his intellectual competitors (he never sold anything) were of the heterogeneity floats our boat school.
The book may be long on paeans to the others involved, but it's nice to know how ideas flowed from person to person, and how comprehensive his initial notions were. What's clear is that his relentless "elling"of the idea of interconnectivity, common language, and open standards is what made the Web spread like wildfire and gave the basis to today's usage.
If Berners-Lee's "ompetitors"had had there way, we'd be using one of a dozen proprietary systems, paying per click and retrieval - very much like a larger version of Lexis-Nexis or CompuServe.
