Java in a Nutshell
Java in a Nutshell
Price: £12.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple and concise..., 27 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one of the best "Nutshell" books I've ever read.
It covers so much but with no fluff, which is exactly what I needed. Great work.

...surprisingly good.
The battery lasts a long while and reading is really easy on the eyes.

1.0 out of 5 stars A terribly unreliable product., 2 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It looks okay, but it simply does not work reliably.
If like me, you want to use it for backups or anything remotely important, I implore you to buy something else... anything else!

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a lush album., 28 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Aquarian Angel (Audio CD)
I used to just buy Jay Denes work, without thinking about it... so much so, that I didn't get round to listening to this album for a year or so... and then one day...boom!
It's wonderful.
It's been looping for weeks; i just can't get enough.

Blue Six forever!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic..., 20 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pro Git (Kindle Edition)
This book is unbelievably clear.

To be fair, you can read it for free on the git-scm site (as I did), but it was so good, I felt the author deserved to get paid.
Buy it, you won't regret it.

This book is an incredibly well written guide to developing for the iOS platform.
Honestly, if you can buy only one book on the subject, get this one. You won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book., 15 Aug. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Every now and again, you find a book that's easy to read, and succeeds in telling you everything you want/need to know about a particular thing. Well this book does that for just about every aspect of D.I.Y and home maintenance. Frankly, it doesn't matter to me if you buy this book or not... but it's my honest opinion that you'll be absolutely glad that you did!
