So are you saying books on Python, XML, Windows 7, Oracle 11 are all obsolete?
Why is it that every comment for this review talks not to the review or the book? Has anyone read the book? Do they differ with the reviewer? Has anyone gone to Zarrella’s web site? All the banter is about extraneous topics. Focus people, focus!
Who like ruby? Those that get frustrated by Python and think that it is way too high level.
true, but python is far from perfect..........
[ xxx] I already have a positive/negative entrenched opinion of Python or Ruby [xxx ] I assume Ruby == Ruby on Rails [xxx ] I program in PHP for it's robust design, consistent syntax and architectural soundness
sorry, replied too soon. i thought your review was a bit critical >>The images are pretty shoddy – over dark and with not enough contrast; they’re not very well constructed either, in that there’s an awful lot of distracting background ‘fluff’ in some of them. this is a book on presos, not photography. no? >>The print quality isn’t great – I know heavily bleached paper isn’t great for the environment but just a little more whiteness would have made things easier to read, particularly by the light of my bedside light! Get a light dude!!
>>In short, well worth the read.
So after all, you really did love it!!
slightly... good review......
people, 95% of the comments on this topic so far are based on bias and hate. there are no facts, only conjecture. knock it off.
10 years to read about 50 pages of Finnegans Wake and you have the gall to be a grammar policeman
It is not that they digress, it is that so many people on
/. have ADD/ADHD, that by the time they get to write the comment, they lose context. :)
u r obviously a finnegan's wake fan
way too obscure.
And if that is true, then what do apostrophe's have to do with it?
Is it me, or is it that most of the comments below are about secondary issues, and not directly related to the book and review. Is digression part of the Slashdot mantra?
ok.. well, dr. demento. you are aging yourself.
ok, help us out... whats so funny?
to whom r u directing this message ?
