Effective Java

Effective Java / Joshua Bloch, Addison-Wesley, 2008

“I sure wish I had this book ten years ago. Some might think that I don’t need any Java books, but I need this one.” — James Gosling, inventor of Java.

“This is a truly excellent book done by the guy who designed several of the better recent Java platform API’s (including the Collections API).” — James Clark, of XML fame.

Dreamweaver CS3: the missing manual

Dreamweaver CS3: the missing manual / David Sawyer McFarland, Pogue Press/O’Reilly, 2007.

With 1000 pages of text, and small pictures of dialogs every second page or so, this book might be the best way to learn Dreamweaver. No code examples!  The book is not written by David Pogue, but his picture and bio are prominent on the back cover. The author deserves more credit for writing an excellent book.
