5.0 von 5 Sternen Amazing HTML reference, and then some!, 5. Mai 2000
I use this book primarily because I can't remember all of the HTML tags and all of the attributes you can use with each. This alphabetizes and gives a complete explanation of exactly how each HTML entity can be used, including more details than you'll ever need concerning the different attributes (parameters).
This book not only gives the complete HTML specification, but it also describes whether each feature is supported by IE or Netscape (and which version). It discusses how different browsers will handle the same code, which is a big plus in my eyes.
And, HTML is not all of it; it covers CSS, DOM, and JavaScript:
CSS: This also describes how you can alternatively use CSS (cascading style sheets) to model the objects in your web pages, which often gives you more control over how it looks. (This involves setting the STYLE attribute of a tag.)
DOM: This describes how you can modify HTML objects, even *after* the page has been loaded, by accessing the objects' properties inside your scripts, whether it is JavaScript or VBScript or whatever.
JavaScript: It gives a reference for the core language.
So, at the very least, if you ever want to know all the cool things possible with HTML, this is an incredible reference, with brief examples. Five stars!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent for learning New Testament Greek!, 27. März 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Basic Greek in 30 Minutes a Day (Taschenbuch)
This book is great because it builds your confidence up very early. From the beginning, you are translating large sections of verses, without having to worry about the specific cases of nouns and tenses of verbs and markings of letters and such. You fill in the blanks and complete Scripture, and he gives references so you can check yourself and also see how different translations tackle controversial passages.
Here are the sections: (1) In the first section, you start off very easily: you learn the easiest Greek letters (which look like English letters), easy vocabulary cognates, which are Greek words that are very similar to English words), and very little grammar. You eventually learn the rest of the letters (such as pi& which is pronounced like the letter ;p and theta, which is like th and so on). You also learn where ichthus (the Greek letters in the Christian fish symbol) comes from. (2) The second section gets your feet wet with a little grammar and you start to learn different endings for nouns and stuff. (3) In the third section you learn those little words such as for, but, because, in order that, and therefore (4) In the fourth section you learn where many theological words come from (such as the fact that the wordsin comes from the Greek for missing the mark the word saints cmes from the Greek for holy [ones] the word edify is based on the word for "house", and so on). (5) The fifth and last section you tackle the dreaded verb endings.
The book is divided into about 50 lessons, each of which can be done in probably less than 30 minutes on average.
Note that the book is focused on *reading* New Testament Greek, and not necessarily *writing* Greek. Some attention is given to pronunciation. It is designed for people who want to be able to *recognize* the meaning of words in the Greek New Testament, rather than worry about frustrating details that matter little, or having to write Greek on your own. Two examples are: (1) You are encouraged not to worry about the little marks above the Greek letters, except in the cases where they make a difference in the meaning of the word; and (2) the author helps you with the noun-cases and verb-tenses at the beginning of the book, so that you only worry about the root meaning of Greek words.
Inidentally, I recommend Alfred Marshall's Interlinear Greek New Testament, which shows the NASB translation on the left (practically a literal translation) and the NIV on the right (an easy-to-read more contemporary English translation).
