DONT' BUY Adobe eBook Reader format eBooks
The content of the book is great. There is no doubt about that.
However, the Adobe eBook format is far too restrictive. This is the first .PDF file that I've found only works in Adobe eBook Reader. eBook Reader is designed to prevent copying of eBooks: The eBook is downloaded...by eBook Reader itself, saved on the boot partition with a cryptic name, and secured so that it cannot be opened from any other location. And with this eBook, you are limited to printing 300 pages per year. Too many restrictions!
In addition,[some sites limit] the number of downloads of the eBooks that you purchase.
So, if you frequently need to re-install the OS on the boot partition, like I do, then you lose your eBook! This is not good for the customer or the publisher or the writer.
I'd like to backup the file that I've purchased rights to, but I can't! I expected the eBook format to be portable, like standard PDF.
...The majority of independent eBook authors on the Web using the .PDF format do not restrict the copying of .PDF files. Some of these files have no restrictions at all. Certainly, there are some people who violate the copyright, but many of these eBook authors are making bags of money in spite of that. Unfortunately, it seems that the traditional publishing houses are reluctant to take the risk of allowing the customer to keep backups of the eBooks they have the rights to use, and as a result infuriate customers like me, who never again will purchase an eBook for either Adobe eBook Reader or Microsoft Reader.

The best web application UI book available.
I've been developing web applications for more than 5 years, and though not perfect and not necessarily written for the beginner, I feel this is the best book of its kind available. Thanks to the authors for putting something useful out there finally.
