3.0 von 5 Sternen More of a bio than "inside the FBI's..", 29. Mai 2000
John Douglas spends a lot of time talking about the cases and the workload, and his criss-crossing the country. I wish it went more into the details of each crime, spending a little more time on the details. I began Mind Hunter expecting a lot more than I received. The book is interesting but it really lacks insight as to how the FBI actually arrived at their profiles. Most of the time a quick summary of the crime would be given then the author would describe the killer without ever explaining how he came to the conclusions he did, and take credit for solving it. It left me with more questions then answers, and knowing a lot more about John Douglas than profiling. It's only 384 pages so its worth reading to the end, just know it's more about John Douglas the the "inside" story.

5.0 von 5 Sternen It's like someone turned on the light - amazing!, 3. April 2000
This book is one that makes you hit your head and say "Why did'nt I see that". This should be required reading for anyone in management or in the IT field. It brings everything into focus as to why things are happening. I was amazed at the keen perception the author has. This is a must read. Worth every penny.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good but too heavy - In weight that is!, 25. Februar 2000
Although this book has impressive weight and size I think your better off with another book, this one spends way too much time on how to do something and leaves out the why. I recommend a book from SYBEX over this one. I did find very few errors and for the most part informative, but spent time turning pages to get to the MEAT, could have been half the size and still have the info in it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Good book - I thought it had bang for the buck, 25. Februar 2000
I recommend this book I used it along with the Exam Cram book the two complete each other. You might be able to pass with this book alone but why waste the 100 dollars if you don't. The goal of any test should be to pass on the first try. This book and the exam cram ISBN # 1-57610-193-4 will help you meet that goal. I recommend this book and give it the 5 star seal of approval. I passed this test on the first try with an 833 and I am a MCP. As with most of these study guides it helps to use more than one.

2.0 von 5 Sternen There are better books out there, 25. Februar 2000
There are better books out there but this is OK, it seemed to be beaten up here but I did not think is was *that* bad. I am putting the book up on EBAY though to buy more books. So this isn't a save-it-for-the-grandchildren book, I did pass the test how much this book helped is hard to tell.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Better off with any other book on the subject!, 25. Februar 2000
I found this book to be full of errors and a total waste of my time. If you are a TOTAL beginner and don't have a clue maybe it would be ok. But it lacks depth, is error prone, and repeats. You would be much better off reading the Networking Essentials Study guide ISBN #0764531778 - yea - I know it cost more but you get what you pay for, unless you buy this book - then it is a waste of all your money. Take it from me I passed the Networking Essential's exam and am a MCP, better of with other books.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Better than most books twice as heavy!, 25. Februar 2000
I have right know - 5 books on this subject and I just passed the test on the first try with a 866 when only a 700 is required. I believe this book is what put me over the top and gave me some error room to boot! It is very easy to read and reminded me a lot of a textbook but thats a good thing, those "other" books try to make things much harder than they have to be. This book lays it out in a GREAT format. I found no errors unlike many other books and I recommend this with 5 star! - something I rarely ever give out. Good job to the author, keep it up! Highly recommend!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent - I'm reading it for the second time, 26. Dezember 1999
I recommend this book highly! It seemed to fill in a lot of holes that I had with the whole free / open source movement. The book it very easy to read and I even said the wife would like it, but if it has the word "computer" in it she stays away. Don't make the same mistake she is the book is a easy read and kept my interest, so much so I'm going through it agian, something I usally only do for highly technical books, this is just enjoyable reading.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Save You money - you need common sense, 27. November 1999
This book really disappointed me it really did'nt have anything that jumped out at me, that made me say "O - I forgot about this" maybe because I'm a SysAdmin I might be more up to date than most. If your lacking common sense then buy this book, but with 30 days or so till 2000 its almost a mute point now.


GOOD NEWS ABOUT PANIC, ANXIETY AND PHOBI
GOOD NEWS ABOUT PANIC, ANXIETY AND PHOBI
von Mark S. Gold M.D.
  Taschenbuch

3.0 von 5 Sternen Book is 10 years old, but good primer, misses recent drugs., 27. November 1999
My review of the book The Good news about panic, anxiety, and phobias by Mark Gold. I found this book easy to read and covers a broad range of anxiety disorders. Right from the start though I was wishing for the "good news". Of course the good news is that anxiety disorders are the number one mental health problem among women and are second only to drug and alcohol abuse among men. I wish it gave the good news earlier in the book as it takes some reading to discover this news. He points out that its not your fault and that your condition can be treated and in many cases cured. Even if you haven't responded to treatment in the past don't despair, In reality, its not the patient that fails the treatment but the treatment that fails the patient.
On one page he supplies a checklist of anxiety symptoms, he states that most panic and anxiety have physical causes. Then goes on a soapbox on the shortcomings of psychiatrist in the diagnosing of anxiety. When we get to page 35 we begin a definition of the terms used in the book:
PA - Panic Attack Phobias GAD - Generalized Anxiety Disorders OCD - Obsessive Compulsive Disorder PTSD - Post Traumatic Stress Disorder AD - Adjustment Disorder
When we get to chapter 6 we finally start getting into possible physical causes that can present symptoms similar to those of anxiety.
The book has a listing of state-by-state experts and sources and bibliography although again most of the works seem to be from the 80's so more recent data should be available. If you need to come up to speed its not a bad book but if you need a more in depth discussion this is probably not the book for you. That along with it being 10 years old make it a ok book if you find it discounted, but you could probably find more recent data for the same buck.
