5.0 von 5 Sternen A deep, practical treatment, 21. Juli 2000
I bought this book because I was new to software quality assurance, yet placed in charge of an automated testing effort. This book clearly encapsulates years of experience -- you can almost feel the pain the authors must have experienced as they learned these lessons the hard way! I have already avoided making a number of mistakes.
The authors organized the material effectively and wrote it in a way that promotes skimming and scanning. By reading the first few sentences of a section, you will know whether you are interested in the section. If you're not interested, skip to the next section. The authors even occasionally tell you what sections you can skip should that material not apply to your situation.
These skimming and scanning aids are important because the text itself is frequently unexciting and cumbersome. There's not much to do about the former -- nuts and bolts are hard to make exciting. I hope, however, that the authors will consider a good edit for more vigorous writing should they update this book for a second edition.


The Inmates are Running the Asylum: Why High-tech Products Drive Us Crazy and How to Restore the Sanity
The Inmates are Running the Asylum: Why High-tech Products Drive Us Crazy and How to Restore the Sanity
von Alan Cooper
  Gebundene Ausgabe

4.0 von 5 Sternen Can interaction design really save the software industry?, 30. Juni 2000
Alan Cooper wants nothing short of cultural change in the software industry. He wants to get programmers out of the business of deciding how humans will interact with computers. He asserts that interaction design specialists should do that. Interaction designers will create self-evident software to which customers will flock.
Hear, hear -- but good luck. As long as software companies continue to be profitable with programmers doing interaction design, it's not likely to stop.
Unfortunately, Cooper limits his book to the business case for interaction design. This omits the action step: how to effect that cultural change within a software company.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Some good insight regardless of whether you agree, 7. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Bondage Breaker (Taschenbuch)
Your denomination may or may not teach, and/or you may or may not believe, that demons have any power over us today. As I understand the Bible, demons could reside within people during the first century, but it's not clear to me whether that's still the case today.
Regardless, Anderson gives some good practical advice to help you overcome sinful habits. All of that advice boils down to learning and embracing the truth. Whether it's Satan whispering lies into your ears or you lying to yourself, when you recognize those lies, you can (with effort) choose to stop listening to them. When you stop listening to lies and instead listen to truth, your actions will change for the better.

4.0 von 5 Sternen You can immediately apply these principles for good results., 7. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The New Dare to Discipline (Taschenbuch)
My wife bought this book at a time when I felt like my 3-year-old was taking charge of me. I was skeptical -- all I knew of Dr. Dobson was his interviewing of that serial killer who claimed that pornography played a role in his violence, and I didn't think that link was made clearly enough for Dobson to draw his conclusions. But indeed, Dobson has written a practical, thoughtful, and effective guide. Not only has it helped me regain calm composure and even hand with my young ones, it has given me insight into ways to help build my sons' characters for the long term. Bravo, Dr. Dobson!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Rock-solid introduction to usability testing., 7. Juni 2000
The author provides a supermarket of information from which you can choose your approach and method for performing usability testing. I had a little usability-testing experience when I bought this book. It quickly gave me some ways to streamline my process, plus some ways to shore up my process where it was weak. The most important thing this book gave me, however, was an understanding of when to use "quick and dirty" usability testing and when to perform a more thorough study.


Microsoft  Visual Basic   Professional 6.0 Step by Step (Step by Step (Microsoft))
Microsoft Visual Basic Professional 6.0 Step by Step (Step by Step (Microsoft))
von Michael Halvorson
  Taschenbuch

3.0 von 5 Sternen Exposes you to the breadth of VB, 25. Februar 2000
I was a programmer when the VT100 terminal and the command line were king and queen. I could write some mean Pascal or FORTRAN. I cut my teeth on BASIC, and taught myself a little C. But then I turned away from programming, and in the ensuing decade, the programming world changed. I bought this book to catch up with the changes. Boy, have things changed -- for example, VB lets you display database records by painting a few controls and typing one line of code. And they call this programming?
Halvorson's book guides you through the standard-bearer of programming's current state. Halvorson concisely explains concepts, then walks you through examples that mostly follow this pattern: Create the interface, type in the following code, and run it. To learn from this book, you must pay special attention to the code Halvorson gives you. Read each line and consider the role it plays. If you omit this analysis, you will learn and retain little.
When you finish this book, you will have been exposed to the breadth of Visual Basic and will know what kinds of things are available to you. But I have a sneaking suspicion that when you start building your own VB applications, you'll be back at Amazon.com buying a solid VB reference.


Debugging the Development Process: Practical Strategies for Staying Focused, Hitting Ship Dates, and Building Solid Teams (Méthodologie Architecturale)
Debugging the Development Process: Practical Strategies for Staying Focused, Hitting Ship Dates, and Building Solid Teams (Méthodologie Architecturale)
von Steve Maguire
  Taschenbuch

3.0 von 5 Sternen An enjoyable, practical, general guide., 10. Dezember 1999
Maguire has written an engaging book, full of practical principles for keeping teams motivated and on task. These principles apply to _any_ product development process, however. I read this book while I managed a team of technical writers. I applied most of Maguire's ideas to the team's process to good success. I think that if I had been managing a team of programmers, however, I would have hoped for more information specific to that discipline.

Running Microsoft Excel for Windows with 3.5 Disk

  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen The best Excel 97 reference, period., 6. Dezember 1999
In my work as a technical editor, I've had reason to review many of the other 800+-page books available on Excel 97. This one stands out, far and away, as the top reference available. It covers more than any of the other titles, and does so more thoroughly. For example, this is the only book I've found that covers creating custom numeric formats.
