UNIX AWK and SED Programmer's Interactive Workbook (UNIX Interactive Workbook) - book cover picture

I am an Oracle DBA. So far sed is enough for my file processing chores.Since I may need AWK later on, I am very interested in learing AWK now.
Thanks a great deal, Peter ! I bought the book yesterday. It cut
down my fear about AWK. The way Peter shows AWK makes it easy to understand ! Many people are great programmers but to write a book, you MUST be a be a great TEACHER besides a great expert in this field. Pater is the right one.
I had this in my mind on my way home:AWK is not hard , all you need is to have Peter as the teacher !Peter: What is your teaching background if you don't mind ?Prentice Hall: I love your 'interactive workbook', I bought almost half of all your titiles !
Thank you for choosing excellent teachers to write those books ! This is an absolutelly successsful project! I hope to see more books like this !

Historical significance cannot be stressed enough! Read it!

Quiet Odyssey: A Pioneer Korean Woman in America - book cover picture

I read this book in highschool while living in in Seoul, Korea. I am a Korean-American woman and I found the information in this book to be _invaluable_. Unlike similar historical works such as John Okada's 'No-No Boy' or Sui Sin Far's 'Mrs. Spring Fragrance and Other Writings', this is pure autobiography (or ethnobiography if you want to be technical). I cannot believe how lucky we are as Americans to get a first-hand account of a Korean-American living in turn of the century America, when there were literally only a handful living in the country at the time. The 'memoirs' are not only highly satisfying in themselves, they serve as anchors to the past in which to begin tracing a discernable branch of Asian-American history. Adds perspective in which to view today's world of American race relations. I think this is necessary reading for anyone who is interested in race, American society, and/or history. Will also appeal to minority activists.

Summer Sisters - book cover picture

I ALWAYS LOVED READING JUDY BLUME BOOKS WHEN I WAS YOUNGER AND DIDN'T THINK THAT SHE COULD DO BETTER THAN "HELLO GOD, ITS ME MARGARET" BUT I WAS WRONG. "SUMMER SISTERS" WAS GREAT TO PUT IT MILDLY. I THINK THE FRIENDSHIP BETWEEN VIX AND CAITLIN IS LIKE A MOST MODERN DAY FRENDSHIPS IN TODAY'S SOCIETY. I MYSELF HAVE FRIENDS THAT REMIND ME OF THOSE TWO THAT IT WAS ACTUALLY SCARY. IT FELT LIKE JDUY BLUME WAS RIGHT THERE TAKING NOTES ON THEM. I RECOMMENDED THIS BOOK TO MY FRIENDS BECAUSE IT WAS JUST THE GREATEST

Great read


Book title: Mystic River
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Mystic River - book cover picture

Mystic river was very hard to put down and it was finished in a day. I love Dennis' style of writng the book was very dark. It seemed not a soul in that town stood a chance. It kept you guessing and on your feet. I don't want to give anything away but you don't necessarily feel bad or sad for the "bad guy". I totally understood where he was coming from and I liked how he turned out. In a sense he helped the guy along with the demons he was batteling. I love the dialogue between the detecives especially. Mystic River is a great read.
I also enjoyed "Prayers for Rain". I think your're a fine writer.

One of the best books I've ever read.


Book title: The Testament (John Grishham)
Rating: 5/5

The Testament (John Grishham) - book cover picture

Grisham's comparison of good vs. greed is amazing in it's focus and clarity. Finally, fiction with a higher goal than mere entertainment! And in attaining that goal, action, intrigue and fine prose are not sacrificed. Rachel Lane is a heroine in every sense of the word. Grisham's treatment of Christianity is a relief in today's anti-Christian society. This novel left me feeling hopeful about the good things that still exist in the world today. Having read all of Grisham's novels, I rate this one as his best so far! This is a novel I will read again and again.

Mrs. Chippy's Last Expedition: The Remarkable Journal of Shackleton's Polar-Bound Cat - book cover picture

This book is NOT precious--cat fanciers will find Alexander's narrative about how an intelligent cat views things to be one of the best, most balanced, and yet non-syrupy writings on this subject to date. Everyone else might actually learn something about the affect cats have on people, in this case some hard bitten explorers in a stressful situation most of us can't imagine.Knowing the overall context of this story (Mrs Chippy was shot at 2:55pm the day after her "journal" ends on Shakleton's orders prior to an aborted dog sled attempt to reach land) makes this story haunting, even tragic. But, it also shows how an event now considered triumphant (the crew's return unharmed) is fraught with little tragedies along the way. That is what makes this story haunting and thoughtful.

Red Meat : A Collection of Red Meat Cartoons From the Secret Files of Max Cannon - book cover picture

I made the mistake of WORKING at a chain bookstore a few years ago in my hometown, and as I grew despondent as usual one day, my friend happens along with RED MEAT. The first strip I saw was the one where Ted Johnson's son needs "braces." That's all that need be said for those who've read the book, and for those who haven't, you'll doubtless soon find out. What made me realize this book was something truly special was that each strip involving the majestically nasty Milkman Dan was funnier than an entire Woody Allen movie. Buy it, cure it by hanging it out in the sun for a few days (or hang out in the sun yourself for the right mood), cook it, salt it, and READ it.

The Last of the Really Great Whangdoodles (Julie Andrews Collection) - book cover picture

Julie Edwards takes us on a magical trip which is only possible for those who can use their imaginations and carefully observe their surroundings. Children will love the comical creatures who can only defeat them if they allow their emotions, both positve and negative, to be used against them. I have read this story to classes from Grade Four to Grade Six and all the children have loved the plot and characters. The children will learn to deal with Swamp Gaboons and Tree Squeaks, which are found on all elementary school playgrounds, as well as Sidewinders and the Prock who are found in most elementary school staffrooms. A wonderful book!

The Truth About Money (2nd Edition) - book cover picture

I recently had to do some cramming for an estate planning session with our family attorney and this book was my reference for understanding wills, trusts, insurance, and IRA plans. Even though I have a degree in Finance, it helps to have this subject explained and diagrammed in an easy to understand formula. I think Mr. Edelman did a great job with this work. The charts and diagrams are outstanding. If you're going to do any estate planning, start by reading this gem.

Tides Of War Is An Epic Masterpiece

Binding: Audio Cassette
Tides of War - book cover picture

This is the first Steven Pressfield novel I have bought on audio tape, having long been a fan of such writers as James Michener and Barbara Kingsolver. What an epic masterpiece this is, too! It is as rich in detail as it is in character development and plot, and Derek Jacobi turns in another breathtaking narration of the story. Believe me, once you are met and greeted by Alcibiades'face on the cover, you,too, will be inspired to hear the whole story and learn about this extraordinary native son of ancient Greece!
