1.0 out of 5 stars Proprietary strategy requiring expensive subscription to use, 21 Feb. 2008
Whilst this book is well written and presented, the basis for the strategy is an indicator called the River Oscillator Indicator which is not available in any of the generally available charting packages except a $150 or $350 per month package from the Concorde Forex Group. And by pure coincidence the author of this book just happens to be the CEO of the Concorde Forex Group. I wasted my money on this book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not the contents I was expecting, 9 May 2004
After reading the synopsis, and the text on the front cover ('A complete resource for assessing, auditing, analyzing, and evaluating any network environment'), I assumed that this book would describe in detail the Cisco methodology for auditing networks.Unfortunately it provides over 800 pages of general networking information that can be found for free on Cisco.com, none of which is about auditing. The only information about auditing is found in the 10 page Appendix A at the back of the book, and even this information is now dated.
If you have studied for a CCNA/CCNP then you will have most of the contents of this book in other Cisco Press titles. This book is almost identical to the Cisco Press Internetworking Technologies Handbook. Spend your money elsewhere!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, 25 Mar. 2003
A fascinating and in-depth walk-through of the life of Tony Hawk and the progression of skateboarding to the modern day. Essential reading for anyone who owned (or still owns) a skateboard. An inspiring read! It will make you rummage through your garage to find your old deck!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for beginners, 25 Mar. 2003
After attending a Sun/Nokia developer conference I was curious to find out more about MIDP, MIDlets, J2ME etc.... However this is not the book to give a beginners introduction. It does a good job of presenting the different types of high and low level UI components, but without giving full code examples I often found myself unable to create the demo's given in the book. The book states that the code is available on the Prentice Hall website, but I have been unable to find it.


Call Center Handbook: The Complete Guide to Starting, Running and Improving Your Call Center
Call Center Handbook: The Complete Guide to Starting, Running and Improving Your Call Center

5.0 out of 5 stars Good coverage of traditional call center technology, 30 April 2001
Keith Dawson's Call Center Handbook (3rd edition) covers a whole spectrum of ideas and technology to implement at your call center. Chapter 4 includes a very good introduction to ACDs, and chapter 5 provides some excellent ideas for outdialling. CRM and WFM are also covered with some good text on media blending for differing types of contact. A little disapointed that no VoIP was covered, however I believe that the 4th edition covers this. Overall, an excellent book to read if you're involved with call centers.


UFO: Crash Landing? Friend or Foe? - True Story of the Rendlesham Forest Close Encounter
UFO: Crash Landing? Friend or Foe? - True Story of the Rendlesham Forest Close Encounter
by Jenny Randles

2.0 out of 5 stars Not enough fact, 21 Sept. 1999
I bought Jenny Randles book - UFO Crash Landing, hoping that it would uncover some hard facts surrounding the 'crash' near RAF Bentwaters. Unfortunately the book is written in a very strange style which jumps back and forth to different events over a long timeline. The book also tends toward Alien encounters rather than Military happenings. A very interesting subject to write about, but poorly presented.
