William Stanek has written a book to give everyone a quick reference guide for most of the common tasks you'll do in SQL Server 2012. While a lot of this may be a review for those who are experienced, there are enough changes and new content that is well summarized that this could be a valuable reference for anyone who works with SQL Server 2012.

Windows® Phone 7 Plain & Simple

Windows® Phone 7 Plain & Simple

Peter's rating: StarStarStarStarStar 3.0

On Dec 13, 2010 Peter Schott wrote: Good book for people new to WP7
Overall, Windows Phone 7 Plain & Simple is a good book for people new to Windows Phone 7 and especially for people new to Smart Phones. Michael does a great job illustrating how to use the phone and get up to speed quickly. If you can find Windows Phone 7 Plain & Simple for a reasonable price and are new to the platform, pick it up. It's a short, but informative, read. If you've followed WP7 for a while, this is not likely the book for you as you'll know most of the information here already. You may still want to pick up a copy to share with family or friends who are new to the phone. It could save you "support" calls. Full Review >

Cooking for Geeks

Cooking for Geeks

Real Science, Great Hacks, and Good Food

This is not a cookbook. If you’re looking for a new collection of recipes, this is not the book for you. If you like shows like Good Eats or enjoy seeing how food is prepared and served, you’ll almost certainly love Cooking for Geeks. If you like experimenting in the kitchen and knowing why food turns out the way it does, pick up this book! Full Review >
