Don't You Have Time to Think?
Don't You Have Time to Think?
by Richard P Feynman
Edition: Paperback
Price: £13.48

5.0 out of 5 stars Careful! Same as "Perfectly reasonable deviations from the beaten track"!, 7 Aug. 2013
This book was originally published under the title "Perfectly reasonable deviations from the beaten track". Later on, it has been published as "Don't you have time to think". Other than that, it's an excellent book, as everything where Feynman was involved.

4.0 out of 5 stars Overall good, 11 July 2010
This book covers most aspects of C# and .NET on Windows. It is a good book overall if you are getting started with C# and .NET. There are some additional chapters available online (GDI+, Directory services, LINQ to SQL, etc) which in my opinion should be in paper. They only thing I miss is more information on C# on Unix (Mono), there is barely a mention to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, 18 Jun. 2007
This is a very good good which teaches you C++, Qt and design patterns.

I am surprised by the commentaries saying this is not an introductory book. Quite the opposite: this is the perfect book if you do not know any one of Qt, C++ or design patterns but you want to use them together.

Some may say the book worries too much about syntax. Wrong. The authors want to make sure you understand C++ perfectly well because subtle differences (such as the 'static in declaration' vs 'static in definition', introduced in chapter 2) may have devastating effects in your software. The same goes for Qt macros: the book explains them because when you know and understand them, you will write better code; the book by Blanchette and Summerfield barely names them.

As the title says, this book is only an introduction. There are three natural companions you should get if you want to delve deeper in the wonderful world of Qt and design patterns:

* "A Complete Guide to Programming in C++" by Prinz and Prinz

* "C++ GUI programming with Qt4" by Blanchette and Summerfield

* "Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software" by Gamma et al.
