5.0 von 5 Sternen The poles of the soul, 8. Mai 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Railway Man (Taschenbuch)
This book explores the depths and the hights of human nature.
In relating his incarceration and torture during WW2, Lomax shows just how bad people can be to each other.
But when the book moves to the meeting and then reconciliation between torturer and prisoner, and Lomax reveals how the pent-up hatred was hurting both of them, we are taken to the other extreme of the human spirit, to a compassionate and healing place.
Have a hankerchief handy for the book's climax - I promise you you'll need one.


e-Profit: High-payoff Strategies for Capturing the E-commerce Edge
e-Profit: High-payoff Strategies for Capturing the E-commerce Edge
von Peter S. Cohan
  Gebundene Ausgabe

4.0 von 5 Sternen Accessible information, 21. April 2000
This book was loaned to me by a colleague. Now I want my own copy!
Cohan doesn't just examine the state of the E-Commerce gain (though he does that well), he also explores on the issues that make businesses loathe to actually dive into the e-commerce pool: Lack of knowledge about the technical issues involved; fear of change to the organisation; and lack of management buy-in.
An E-commerce venture requires input from technical and commercial staff. This book seems geared more towards the commercial guys, but as a computer nerd I found the business issues discussed with clarity.
Similarly the financial guys will find the technological issues are well discussed without getting into the dirty details and TLAs that we love to confuse y'all with :-)
Great book! Well researched, has a lot of good information, and very accessible.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Information in easy to digest chunks, 11. Februar 2000
It's not often that you come across a book that deals with complex topics in language that the layman can understand.
The organisation is excellent - Petzold explores one topic at a time, giving you the chance to absorb one concept before moving on to the next. And each chapter builds on what you have read before.
If you are just curious about what goes on inside your PC, or if you are involved in IT but lack an understanding of the actual box that does all the work, then this book is for you.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Should be mandatory reading, 3. Februar 2000
I've been working in the software industry for 12 years now. I believe that a lot of bad practices have been creeping into programming. A lot of code is poorly written, full of "quick and dirty" fixes, poorly structured, and hard to comprehend. The IT industry is not as rigorous as it once was.
This is what Code Complete addresses. It is not a programming primer, it is an discussion of methods that can be used to make code more legible, more maintainable, and less buggy.
If you don't or can't buy the book then absorb this idea from the book: Programming is not the art of communicating with the computer, it is the art of communicating with other programmers who will read your code.


Between Silk and Cyanide: A Codemaker's War, 1941-1945
Between Silk and Cyanide: A Codemaker's War, 1941-1945
von Leo Marks
  Gebundene Ausgabe

4.0 von 5 Sternen A truly English book, 12. Januar 2000
Curse this book! It bought home life to a virtual standstill as first myself and then my fiance found it un-put-downable :-)
It's about many things: The sadness of war, the stubborness and idiocy of bureaucracy, a new broom sweeping clean, the quest for a better method.
The anecdotes about the famous book store at 84 Charing Cross road, and it't clients, are also enjoyable.
The poetry is, by turns, bawdily amusing and moving.
But perhaps most of all this book is a portratit of dear old English eccentricity. What other nation could produce a master cryptographer whose idea of morning exercise is traversing a sequence of rings above an indoor swimming pool - whilst wearing a suit and bowler hat?
