A solid hasp AND a padlock for the price of the postage! I wish other Amazon stores would follow this lead and either offer free postage or be realistic. A book for a penny and £2.50 postage is basically dishonest

Beginning PHP, Apache, MySQL Web Development (Programmer to Programmer)
by Michael K. Glass
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars good, but out of date and assumes MicroSoft ???, 26 Oct 2012
This book is full of detail, but the examples are too specific to be generally useful, don't have tables with multiple items on one post (e.g. tags) so far as I can tell, and assume from the word go that people building for linux servers are going to learn the ropes on a Microsoft PC! Why would anyone?

Edition: Paperback

1.0 out of 5 stars badly written and structured, 28 Aug 2012
this book was a waste of time and money. It reads like a one-sided conversation in the pub, with unhelpful phrases repeated over and over. It is so bad I gave up on WordPress; now I'm looking for a better book.

5.0 out of 5 stars underpriced quality violin!, 2 Jan 2012
I only chose this violin because it was on offer at the same price as mediocre violins. It is better than I dared hope in every dept. You don't need to buy rosin. rosin is included (in the very fine case) but they don't mention this!

2.0 out of 5 stars 1 hour DIY install, but which suppliers give the best support/guarantees?, 10 Dec 2011
This review is from: Split Wall Mounted Air Conditioner
I'm looking to buy such a system. The review that claims you need a 650 mm hole (over 2 feet!) is not very helpful. Do you mean 65 mm?

The Toshiba condenser gets good reviews and is far more efficient than cheap competitors ( COP= 3.5, rather than ~2 !).

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent introduction based on tried and tested college courses, 23 Sep 2011
An excellent introduction based on tried and tested college courses. The layout, picture quality, explanation and examples are all very good. The production of the book (clarity, paper quality, layout) is in a different league to the competition. The author presents the Gimp making no assumptions about slavery to Microsoft, so Mac and Linux users are well served.
