Areas of Expertise:
"Both an excellent overall introduction to Node.js and a how-to reference guide that you will want to keep close at hand as you develop and deploy Node applications."
"Frankly, I found working with this book to be a blast. It's short enough to not be overwhelming to the reader and to impart a real sense of accomplishment very quickly, but dense enough to provide practical information that can be leveraged into actual, real-world web projects (not all books do this)...If working with media files in HTML5 sounds like something you want or need to do, I'd recommend picking up a copy of this book. "
"To be honest even reading the more basic stuff like chapter 1 on strings make you understand the quality of the book and how it could be useful even for simpler tasks. Great book, highly recommended."
"The fact that the code download file is about 63 megs compressed should give an idea of how much is contained in this big store of scripting knowledge."
"The work is not necessarily effective as a course resource, but it is definitely worth owning a copy. Though aimed at the lay reader, even seasoned professionals may find nuggets of knowledge to add to their repertoire."

"The comprehensive nature of Painting the Web makes it an interesting read and a valuable reference;...True to its title, Painting the Web is visually stimulating and filled with tasteful, full-color examples...I would highly recommend this book for both practitioners and academics who want to brush up on their design skills, as well as the graduate or graduate level who are interested in addiontal practice with Web graphics. "
"For the person new to graphics, it's the first book you should buy. For the intermediate web developer/graphics dabbler your eyes will be opened to creating one of a kind web sites. And for the advanced graphic artists and web developers you probably don't even know some of the things covered in this book. It presents ALL the possibilities (through April 2008 when this First Edition came out) for you to explore. "
"I was impressed with this manuals ease of use, the vast variety of image manipulation techniques that were offered, and how well and comprehensively it covered each topic. It really helps to demystify some of the confusing terminology of graphic design and make it understandable and available to the layperson who wants to make a stunning webpage."
"Painting The Web strikes a perfect balance between aid for the graphically impaired and meat for the graphically inclined. This will *not* be a book I loan out to others, as I want to make sure it's around when I need it."
"Any web programmer's collection should have Adding Ajax..."
