|Comment||Dear Mr. Brambilla,
As an IT professional, I've purchased many thousands of dollars in
technical books during the 9+ years of my career (after 10 years in the
U.S. Navy). At 39 years of age, I often find so many mistakes, incomplete
code examples, grammar errors and such, that it usually takes me up to a
month to find a book for a particular topic, where I can accept the level
of quality enough to purchase.
In May of this year, I was given the opportunity to become the
"Division Webmaster" for my division of P.-H., after 8-3/4 years
working as a Network Administrator. One of my first projects is to
integrate Data from the various sources into web pages and
web-applications. Finding a book or two to assist me in 'learning' the
concepts as well as 'how' to design the model, then implement has been
quite a task, but I happened onto your book while on vacation, and in
reading a short section from Chapter 9, I realized that THIS book is
probably one of the BEST technical books I've ever picked up.
I would like to commend all contributing authors for
such a FINE job! If only the example that you've set could become THE de
facto standard for technical books, we (computing professionals) might just
be able to keep up with the technology that we create.
