Review:
The "Information Superhighway" is a political and promotional catch phrase. The reality behind it is the National Information Infrastructure, the intent of which is to promote advantages to American business through advanced technology. A number of actions, promotions, bills, and proposals are said to be related to the NII; the most frequently cited is "The High-Performance Computing Act of 1991". (It is one of the ironies of this work that the author has chosen to make his home in Amsterdam.) This book is an opinion piece, told by a professional "gee-whizzer", full of verbiage and vendor promotions, signifying nothing. The author introduces the book by suggesting that it is best read as nine magazine articles. It certainly doesn't... Rest of this review on the detail page

Review:
(Sigh.) To paraphrase Dave Barry, help with homework usually involves information, mostly in the form of answers. Yes, the net can give you resources to help with homework.

But somehow I doubt that the simplistic contents will provide much of any value. I think I'll teach my grandsons how to use the net myself. copyright Robert M. Slade, 1997

Review:
Says the back jacket, "JavaScript: quick, easy and complete." JavaScript? Yes, it's about JavaScript. Quick? Yes, it starts throwing sample code and a "hello" program at you fairly early on. Easy? No. The early samples are not well designed to introduce you to the language. The authors admit that their target audience consists of experienced programmers, but then experienced programmers don't really need an introduction to a new language. Complete? Hardly. There is no mention of the fact that JavaScript is still a moving target. There is only one mention of a single difference between JavaScript for Netscape Navigator versions 2 and 3. The fact that server side JavaScript really doesn't exist yet is glossed over. Competing ... Rest of this review on the detail page
