This book is a really great beginners guide for core SQL Server 2012, and it also does a great job of introducing new features introduced in SQL Server 2012. What I mean by core is that topics like Master Data Services and Data Quality Services are not introduced. That is not a bad thing. By limiting the scope of the book, the author was able to better the topics that are included. I wanted this book because I like having a book about the basics close by. I am not in SQL Server everyday and when I find myself needing to go back to it, I not only want books on the advanced features nearby, I want the basics also. The book covers all the basics you need to know to get up and running quickly. After a really nice introduction where the author covers the new 2012 features and where they are covered in the book, they have a nice overview of relational databases and detail... (more)

Master Your Mac: Simple Ways to Tweak, Customize, and Secure OS X Book Review

This book is a great addition to my collection of Mac how to books. I like this one because it steps over the line into the more technical side of Mac features than most of the Mountain Lion guide books do. The book is broken down into seven parts. I have listed the parts below along with the chapters they each contain. I. Back to Basics 1. The Best Shortcuts (and How to Make Your Own) 2. Starting Applications Automatically at Login 3. Finding Files and Folders Fast 4. Organizing Windows 5. Cleaning House 6. Adjusting Energy and Display Settings II. Boosting Productivity 7. Launching Applications Fast 8.

Learning Objective-C 2.0: A Hands-on Guide to Objective-C for Mac and iOS Developers (2nd Edition) Book Review

If I had to give this book a one word description, I would say it is 'balanced'. In the beginning of the book the author mentions that he does not want to right one of those books that list a little code and then explains the code, changes the code, explains those changes and so on and so on. At first he scared me. I have read some insanely wordy programming and engineering books. I have a much harder time getting through those than the type the author described. I was afraid this book would be one of those that I don't get anything out of except war stories from the author's career. That would not be all bad if the stories had anything to do with the book. I am happy to report that is not what happened. I found the author had just the right amount of discussion around the different language features he was covering. I thought that the offer had a very no nonsense app... (more)

iOS 6 Programming Cookbook Book Review

This is a massive cookbook with tons of recipes. It covers a ton of material and it covers it in depth. Although this book is more of a reference than a cover to cover read, every time I use it to look something up I find myself getting sucked in and reading several chapters. The author starts off with a really cool chapter called The Basics. It covers a ton of basics. Everything from packaging iOS apps for distribution to Objective-C language basics to loading data from bundles to using NSNotificationCenter to broadcast events. The rest of the chapter's recipes topics are reflected in the titles of the chapters. I have listed them all below. 1. The Basics 2. Implementing Controllers and Views 3. Auto Layout and the Visual Format Language 4. Constructing and Using Table Views 5. Storyboards 6. Concurrency 7. Core Location and Maps 8. Implementing Gesture Recognizers 9. Netw... (more)
