"Mining the Social Web: Data Mining Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, GitHub, and More concludes with three appendices that should be required reading to a practitioner, and, at eight pages, does not require much time."
"A worthy upgrade to the first edition, this time not PHP but enumerated in Python. Does a good job of plotting & describing PayPal's increasingly byzantine "workflows" to bop payments back and forth."
"If you are trying to figure out where you or your business fits into Twitter, Mining Twitter is a must have book for you! "
"Its a slam dunk for Python programmers.
"It is an incredible companion to get you moving in pulling data, trends or just about anything from Twitter."
"Invaluable custom apps, or at least a good solid start in doing so."
"I got out of my comfort zone and learned several things from this book, so I recommend it to all readers who need to improve their understanding of data."
"This fast-paced and rich handbook jumps right into the fray and provides an immediate and useful exercise in accessing the Twitter API using python and doing a very quick visualization of trending subjects. I was hooked and greedily and immediately consumed a few more of his lessons. "
"Kudos to the organization of the book, with chapter 'encapsulation', allowing for each chapter to be read independently, for each social web network. The e-book is enjoyable because it has a lot of hyperlinks, which is quite convenient..."
"Readers often expect an advanced level of technical description and thoroughness from OReilly, and Dojo: The Definitive Guide meets this description."
"Any computer library strong in web development will find Dojo: The Definitive Guide an excellent introduction which covers all 1.x versions and offers plenty of examples and tested code sets. From customizing Dojo to overseeing developers using Dojo in larger settings, this offers the programmer/manager a set of keys to working efficiently with Dojo to produce superior layouts and web applications."
"Not only has Matthew done an outstanding job documenting and explaining the Dojo Toolkit in great and understandable detail in this book, he's made the Dojo toolkit better through his authoring process by asking hard questions when things did not work the way they should. His suggestions have improved Dojo, and this book lives up to its billing as the Definitive Guide for Dojo."
