Takes LabVIEW Programming beyond DAQ.
In my opinion, the most useful sections of this book are the chapters on software engineering, and preparing a comprehensive requirements document. Having worked on several VIs originally developed by other LabVIEW programmers, I can definitely say that the development process is something we all need to pay more attention to...
Another interesting area is the section devoted to encryption. I have successfully applied these concepts to several of my own projects.
While not a LabVIEW "learning" text, or a practical guide to DAQ problem-solving, this book is very useful for the LabVIEW programmer who has mastered the basics and is looking for other interesting directions to follow.

Put me to sleep!
This book is so "wordy" that it will put you to sleep. There is very little useful information or examples on the CD. I think I wasted my money on this book and don't want you to do the same. If you really want it, I will sell you mine at 50% off. I don't want it.

This book filled most of my knowledge gaps about LabVIEW
This is my second LabVIEW book outside of the documentation set that ships with the product. It is well worth the read. A good portion of the book talks about good structured programming techniques, which is important, but not what I expected.
The real benefit of the book is in the advanced techniques, examples and tips that I'd not found anywhere else in any detail.
It's doubtful that any one person would benefit from every portion of the book because the author covers a broad array of topics, but the items I found of interest were very complete and allowed me to sit back and say, "O.K., Now I really understand how that's done."
