The Best of Rilke: 72 Form-True Verse Translations with Facing Originals, Commentary, and Compact Biography
The Best of Rilke: 72 Form-True Verse Translations with Facing Originals, Commentary, and Compact Biography
von Rainer Maria Rilke
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 15,24

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great introduction to Rilke!, 16. Mai 2000
Looking to learn more about and increase my enjoyment of poetry, I was very happy to find this volume of Rilke's work. In addition to having what appears to be very masterful translations, it has the German and English text of each of his poems on facing pages. This makes this book excellent for those wishing to practice or polish their German.
I was very happy with this purchase, and look forward to reading more of Rilke's work in the future.


Of Ships and the Sea (Dmgr Rules Supplement)
Of Ships and the Sea (Dmgr Rules Supplement)
von Skip Williams
  Taschenbuch

3.0 von 5 Sternen Great content, confusing rules!, 13. Mai 2000
I refrained on reviewing this book until after attempting to use its material in my campaign. While the descriptions and information covering the various ships, the enclosed floor plans, and some of the rules regarding capsizing, ramming, and magic are indeed useful, my entire group found the ship vs. ship combat overly cumbersome, confusing, and bogged down by too many charts, tables and rules.
Still, I think I would recommend this book to those DMs planning to run adventures or campaigns involving lots of sea travel. Sometimes it's fun to roll on the various tables, or use them for inspiration for new adventures. It has lots of good gems to get the DM's mind rolling.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great introduction, mediocre reference, 12. Mai 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: sed & awk (Nutshell Handbooks) (Taschenbuch)
I was very interested in learning sed and awk, and so picked up this book. Like most O'Reilly titles, it is an excellent piece of work. I learned a great deal and was able to get started and pump out some useful code after spending some time with this book. However, I soon found that when it came to tackling some very difficult tasks with sed and awk, this book didn't seem to serve me very well as a reference. I have a feeling that sed and awk are not the sort of thing that one could learn with just one book; there are so many applications for these tools that one must choose what one wishes to do, and find the right books to supplement this excellent text.


The Nag Hammadi Library in English: Revised Edition
The Nag Hammadi Library in English: Revised Edition
von James M. Robinson

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent brain-stretching book!, 14. März 2000
After reading Elaine Pagel's "Gnostic Gospels" I was thrilled to find a copy of the Nag Hammadi library. It is very difficult reading in many places, but supremely worth it. It is nice to see a subject like this treated with professional scholarship.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent place to begin learning CLisp!, 29. September 1999
I had a great time reading this book and learning Common Lisp. As an experienced programmer, I was able to pick up the basics quickly using Mr Graham's layout, and I enjoyed reading his prose, as well.
