In eigenen Worten:

Thank you -- if you are reading this, it is likely that one of my reviews caught your attention!

I live in Ljubljana, Slovenia. That is about three hour drive from Venice, Italy, or four hour drive from Vienna, Austria. I am working towards my PhD in biophysics. Outside my professional activity, I like to tinker with my Linux box, read a book, travel or hike.

Please don't hesitate to… Mehr dazu

The Unix Philosophy von Mike Gancarz
The Unix Philosophy von Mike Gancarz
2.0 von 5 Sternen Yada yada yada, 20. Juli 2000
I suppose this is the kind of book that should be adored by managers. First, it has a stylish cover. Second, it doesn't take much of your time. You should be over with it in about one hour - not only it's thin, it is also typeset in a size larger than the usual book letter size. And third, it comes with ready-made slogans like "Small is beautiful", "Make each program do one thing well" etc, that can come handy at staff meetings.

Even at its rather modest size, this book is stretched to the limits. There is about enough material in it to make a decent article in UnixWorld or some similar magazine, perhaps even two; it could also be made a chapter in some… Mehr dazu

Merely half an inch thick, and employing the same cover design - or lack of it - as the C Programming Language, this is probably the least pretentious looking book on my bookshelf. However, the look is misleading - there are very few books, regardless of length, that aim to teach you as much as this one, and even fewer than succeed in it.

Unix programming environment might sound a rather ambitious title nowadays, when a tutorial on each specialized tool can easily exceed 400 pages. However, this one actually delivers everything that it promises. Kernighan and Pike start with the basic description of Unix file system and the basic set of commands, continue with the command… Mehr dazu
The Cartoon Guide to Physics von Larry Gonick
The Cartoon Guide to Physics von Larry Gonick
I was delighted when some time ago I received two volumes of Larry Gonick's Cartoon History of the Universe as a present from a friend. It is absolutely hilarious! Being a physicist, I considered it a must to add Cartoon Guide to Physics to my Larry Gonick collection.

However, I was disappointed. The guide indeed tries to cover a significant amount of the usual high-school physics course - mechanics, electricity and magnetism (missing are thermodynamics and optics) - but it is not really as charmingly funny as the Cartoon History of the Universe. As a physicist, I can assure you that the problem does not lie in the simple fact that the history is more interesting topic… Mehr dazu
