5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing book, 22 Oct 2011
If you're looking for a book that can describe how Linux Programming works and at the same time with lots and lots of examples, this is for you.
I've been searching for some time and never found a good book, until now.
It's very well written, the language used is some what technical, but you can only read this book if you already know how to program in C or C++ and use Linux.
The author introduces and describes the chapter subject in deep, covering the subject and giving you all the ideas behind and how they work - You get to know how Linux really works.
The examples are very good and for the chapter in question, it does cover well the subject. They are not easy to understand if you never program or even don't use Linux in a daily basis, but you get there. It covers everything you need to write programs for Linux.

Definitely a good book - I'm using it all the time

Six stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where is the six star ?, 3 July 2011
This review is from: C++ for Everyone (Paperback)
Very well written book.
If you are a new to c++ (well, even to programming), this is your book.
The language used is fair simple (but strong enough to get you understand the mechanics of c++).
Getting from the basics of C++ to more advanced features, it takes the reader to get to know c++ almost without notice.
The book is itself well organized and the chapters very easy to read. The colors used, the pictures and the key insights given by the author, to emphasize several key aspects of c++, more common programming errors are extremely useful and well chosen, as well programming tips.
At the beginning of every chapter the author introduces the goals and the contents, and after a bit of reading, indicates which exercises can we already solve.
A bit further down the chapter, there are "self check" sections where we can review what we already learn.
When explaining several exercises, together with the code, there are pictures to help you understand the problem. The author introduces the problem and the solutions, not also with the c++ code, but before the code, with some flowcharts and also with pseudocode.
It's almost like taking programming classes.
At the end of every chapter there are several exercises to solve (well, many exercises), from basic to more advanced features (even engineering problems, with a lot of math problems).

The random facts spread across the chapters are very well within the subject explained - they are a bonus for the book.

I recommend this book for people new to programming, but also to c++.
My congrats to the author for such a good book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some amazing computer fiction, 18 Jun 2011
This book is just amazing. Very well written. The stories just make you thing you're there, doing what they're doing and having the same feelings.
This is fiction, but the stories seem very real and could easy happen.
A must read for all computer administrators.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing book, 14 Nov 2009
A very nice history. After you start reading it, you wouldn't be able to stop. It grabs you so hard. What Cliff makes to persue the hacker is amazing.
Inside the history of espionage, you'll find a very real reference to the oldies of computer science, when all starts and where berkley university has a major role to play.

I absolutely recomend this book !

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Explain, 18 Feb 2005
This is one of the best books i've ever read. It explains everything very well, with simple words, even if you don't understand (yet) very much of the subject. The topics covered are just what you need to know, and every single detail of html, xhtml and css are covered, nothing will miss you !
Nice book
