Moving to VB .NET: Strategies, Concepts, and Code by Dan Appleman
5.0 out of 5 stars Hit the mark!, Dec 18 2002
This book was all I expected and more. It not only teaches VB .Net by example, but also positions VB .Net with VB 6 and explains Microsoft's reasons for dumping COM to go with CLR (Common Language Runtime). Issues of deployment and productivity are explained in a candid way, unlike the shill-like explanations that come out of MS Press. I'm on the Dan Appleman-as-a-guru bandwagon.
Applying Use Cases: A Practical Guide by Geri Schneider

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful as a refresher, Nov. 12 2002
As someone who has followed the development of UML and Use Cases for the past several years and who is now confronted with a project needing definition, I find the Scheider-Winters book very helpful -- not only in applying Use Cases, but also in defining the project itself.
I chose this book because I know Geri Schneider-Winters as a professional (we worked together at UCSC Extension.) I was not disappointed.
Hemingway's Chair by Michael Palin
Hemingway's Chair by Michael Palin
I have long enjoyed Michael Palin as an actor, comedian and world traveller. I was not expecting much from him as a novelist, however, thinking he would be predictably zany and lightweight.
It was a very pleasant surprise to find a book about ordinary people with secret lives -- a topic that always hooks me.
Very well written, with British characters that ring true to my experiences in England, I truly enjoyed this book.
