Magician: Apprentice (Riftwar Cycle: The Riftwar Saga, Band 1)
Magician: Apprentice (Riftwar Cycle: The Riftwar Saga, Band 1)
von Raymond Feist
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 7,15

5.0 von 5 Sternen A page-turner., 2. Juli 2000
This book is great. At the time I bought "Magician: Apprentice" I was very busy at work, and yet I read both books in two weeks! I would get home by 10 and keep reading past midnight. Sometimes I look at the reader's comments on some other books I like to look for my next reading, so I got a reference to this book in one of Peter Hamilton's books, and I'm glad I did.
This book kept me in suspense, and I could not wait to find out what was happening to the characters. Sometimes I get interested in a subplot and don't care for the rest of the story, but every subplot in these two books is interesting.


Project Management: Best Practices (Auerbach Best Practices)
Project Management: Best Practices (Auerbach Best Practices)
von Paul C. Tinnirello
  Gebundene Ausgabe

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great work., 6. Mai 2000
If I were highlighting the interesting parts of this book, I would have to mark almost all of it. Each chapter has insightful recommendations and comments on Project Management, and since they are independent, you may read them in any order, getting right to the parts you are interested on. When I bought it, I was part of a team developing a methodology for our company, and I was looking for a good book to get ideas for this effort. I have found this book very helpful. I had some of my coworkers read the first chapter to get a general idea about what we should get with the methodology, and then used some other chapters to decide what to document, what to include on the documents, and so on. It also gave me hints on how to manage risks in an easy way on small projects.
A book I think would be a great companion to this one would be "Peopleware", which explains how projects do not fail because of hardware or software management, but because of incorrect people management. The two books complement each other fairly well.

4.0 von 5 Sternen This is really a guide, almost an index., 6. Mai 2000
Project Management is not easy stuff, even though many people think all they need is to get a computer package and start using it in order to be project managers. This book is almost an index of the topics you should cover when managing a project, as well as a guide to the Project Management Institute Certification (PMP).
The book does not try to be fun, it is very technical. If you want to get serious about project management, or show off somebody who thinks he/she knows it all about project management, this is a good start point. As I said before, this is almost an index: covers a lot of topics, does not get into the details of almost anything. I would have liked it to includean example of how to put all the techniques together. Nevertheless, I would not say this books is not useful at all, I think it is really meant to be exclusively a guide.
Like the other reviewer, I read this book for a Project Management Course.
If you want to learn how to manage people on projects, and you think they should love their jobs, you should get "Peopleware", by Tom de Marco and Timothy Lister.
For a quick, basic introduction, I think "Fundamentals of Project Management", by Lewis, is almost a "Quick Guide", but you can give this one to busy people, since it is very thin and fun.
For a book that covers human and technical abilities on project management, try "A Survival Guide for Project Managers", by James Taylor.


The Naked God: Flight - Part 1 (The Night's Dawn)
The Naked God: Flight - Part 1 (The Night's Dawn)
von Peter F. Hamilton
  Gebundene Ausgabe

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great ending., 26. März 2000
Finally! After waiting for one year and a half for this book, I got my hands on it, and loved it!
Peter Hamilton doesn't make it easy for his characters. When everything seems like they are going to be fine, another problem surfaces and makes them take several steps back. If you read the previous books, you know this already.
Some people have been complaining about the typos on the book, saying it is full of them. I was tempted to cancel my order when I read there were so many typos. Well, I think the Kiint speech is out of order (intentionally), and I found a "then" instead of a "them" somewhere, but nothing else. I think the book is quite enjoyable as it is.
And finally, I know how to escape the beyond!


God Emperor of Dune
God Emperor of Dune
von Frank Herbert

Preis: EUR 8,80

2.0 von 5 Sternen Not what I expected from a Dune Sequel., 25. Februar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: God Emperor of Dune (Taschenbuch)
I read "Dune", and loved it! It was great. So, I bought the second part, and it was good, so I went ahead and bought the next 4 chapters...
Book 3 was interesting, although not as good as book 2, IMHO. I just did not like "God Emperor of Dune". It was too pretentious, for my taste. I did not like the transformation of Lord Leto II. And I'm sick of the gholas.
I had heard that the best books were 1, 2, 5 and 6. I hope that is so, since so far that comment has been right. And I already have the last two books, anyway. This book was not so disappointing as to make me quit the series, but I expected more from it, or something different, at least.


A Survival Guide for Project Managers

5.0 von 5 Sternen Good introduction to project management., 13. Februar 2000
This book is exactly what I was looking for. I took a Project Management Course back in College, but did not remember much of it. I needed a book that would give the basics of this subject, without being too involved in particular software.
This book does exactly that, and also lists some of the most frequent pitfalls for projects, with half the book emphasizing the human side of Project Management.


Beggars in Spain (Beggars Trilogy)
Beggars in Spain (Beggars Trilogy)
von Nancy Kress
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen Good story., 13. Februar 2000
Even though I still can not make up my mind about whether toconsider this hard sci-fi, or almost hard sci-fi, I really liked thisbook. Kress explores what would happen if people did not have to sleep, along with some political and economical consequences. A little reminiscent of the mutant hatred on the X-comics, and Gattaca (the movie). This book is easy to absorb and fun.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great book!, 6. Januar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Dune (Taschenbuch)
I am always looking for good books, and so I look for reviewed books at Amazon, and browse through the comments in order to select what to read. This one is highly recommended, so I bought, and...
It is great! This dates from the 60's (past century) and is way better than the most known dessert planet with Jedi Knights.
When I bought the book, I was reading Lord of the Rings (I know what I did was heresy) but I read some ten pages of Dune, out of curiosity... And I was hooked! I have finished books one and two, and I am still around page 200 of Lord of the Rings, ouch!
In short, I must also highly recommend this book to those who like Sci-Fi mixed with Fantasy.
