American Pie: My Search for the Perfect Pizza by Peter Reinhart

5.0 out of 5 stars A passion for pizza, Dec 4 2003
I bought this book, having never seen it before, because of my appreciation for author Peter Reinhart's other excellent works, as well as a desire to make good pizza of my own.

Jamsa's C/C++/C# Programmer's Bible by Dr. Kris Jamsa
I bought this book after doing some research for a good C++ book. I had decided on a completely different title when I discovered this one on the shelf and I bought it instead.
This book is not "light reading" by any stretch of the imagination. It is instead almost 1200 pages of fact after fact about C, C++ and C#. It is divided up into sections and subsections, covering first the C language, then moving on to C++, and finally introducing C#. Under each language the author has gone into very deep details about even some of the most obsure topics, making everything very accessible with example code and detailed explanations about the topics he is addressing. The reader will be… Read more
