Wines of Bordeaux (Mitchell Beazley Wine Guide to the Wines of Bordeaux)

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice & compact, 30 Jun. 2004
Nice & compact reference; I appreciate that not all 'chateaus' are evaluated positive as some guides almost seem to do; but put them sometimes in a negative perspective. I missed price indications like the Hachette guide does; and it would be nice to see some more illustrations like more detailed little maps of villages.
Still it is worth to have a second opinion next to Palmer, Hachette ... Don't trust a single reference.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book on a promising evolution in software development, 27 Aug. 2003
For a java developmer, the book explains clearly what AOP is all about. Then proceeds with examples to get started, go in more depth later on until the advance topics. Finally practical examples are elaborated. A typical approach found in many IT technology books.
The author is enthousiast explaining the benifits but shows also some risks.
Of course the 5 stars are influenced but the fact that AOP and AspectJ is very promising and maybe we have overexpectations. Probably this book will help to gain momentum, but it will take some more time to get overall acceptance. At least the book showed to me how to apply AspectJ on limited developments and get benefit from it.


Java Message Service (Java series)
Java Message Service (Java series)
by David A Chappell
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Quick introduction in typical O'Reilly style (& quality.), 17 Jan. 2001
The book offers a well structured, easy reading introduction on JMS, related aspects (guaranteerd messaging, transacted messages, short reference to JMS providers). Highlighting of the essential JMS elements in bold face is quite useful. The quick reference guide in the appendices seem to be better than the javadoc. Some topics are (too) briefly handled such as security (authentication, privacy, integrity), describing the problem with only hints for solutions. More indepth examples and application scenerios with their typical problems (like the O'Reilly book 'Java Servlet Programming' does) would allow 5 stars. 4 stars because this book is meant to be a (quick but) thourough introduction in JMS and related aspects, it is in that sense that it will help you.
