This is a great, handy book to guide you through the internet jungle and will save you many hours of research. I really wish I had had this book before I set up my website. I ended up learning bits and pieces here and there through different people, and it was very confusing with many unexpected, frustrating twists along the way. This book could have saved me a lot of money and headaches!
The first chapter clears up what exactly niche marketing is, the importance of using key words and following your passion. Chapter 2 goes into detail on how to use Word Tracker (an important tool for finding out which key words are used most). This chapter has pictures to help those of us who are techno-challenged.
This section is loaded with details and examples.
Chapter 3 teaches how to "target the long tail," using longer chains of key words. It also teaches how to check out the competitor web sites in the same niche. Chapter 4 instructs on how to find affiliate programs so that you can make money by promoting items from other web sites, and teaches "netiquette," or proper e-mail behavior towards those you work with. The 5th chapter teaches how to decide upon info products and affiliate products. You are also given a list of some reputable companies you can make your own affiliate plan with, so others will advertise your products and get a percentage of what they sell to their list members.
Chapter 6 gives an in depth process of how to write your own info-product, such as an e-book. In the next chapter you learn basic web design and the author walks you through basic steps such as registering a domain name. Chapter 8 guides you to writing like a pro for online copy, using catchy headlines and subheadings. This is very detailed and includes 17 must-have items in your sales copy.
Chapter 9 is about your online marketing plan, and includes items such as your mission, promotion techniques, and making your website stand out. Chapter 10 tells you how to get the word out about your site. It tells how to make link exchanges work for you, how to contact owners of other sites, and more. Finally, the last chapter gives us many more tips such as writing articles and where to submit them, how to use blogs and RSS feeds, and more.
This book is a very easy read for a book on technology! It is clear, straightforward, is sprinkled with photos throughout, and makes a handy reference book to keep on hand even after you read it.

Stealing the Network: How to Own a Shadow Review

Stealing the Network: How to Own a Shadow
Average Reviews:

(More customer reviews)
Did you enjoy the previous three Stealing the Network books? Are you looking for more? Then move along now, nothing to see here.
The prior books were interesting because they introduced the reader to new ideas or new angles on old ideas, then moved on without belaboring them. If you wanted more details, there were often URLs provided. The last two tied the stories together with the intriguing Knuth character. But the folks running the project chose to switch to a new format, with fewer characters and stories, not to mention fewer authors, and fewer ways to split the profits.
After three books with the same (proven) formula, it's understandable the authors would want to try something new. Alas, it's a disaster.
Welcome to "How to Own a Shadow," aka "The SQL Injection Adventures of Pawn." Pawn is one of the new characters in this volume, and is the first StN character I hoped would get shot to death by the cops in a mini-mall parking lot. Yes, he's that irritating. Particularly after reading 40 pages about his childhood as a high-functioning autistic (or something like that), and around 100 pages of him performing SQL injection attacks. Most of which is totally unrelated to Knuth. Note to the authors: SQL injection is interesting, but if you want to write a book about it, just write a book about it. I even gave you a title, what more do you want? You can even recycle much of this book, like you recycled part of the last one here.
Oh, you noticed the real subtitle of the book, "The Chase for Knuth." First, one chases _after_ fugitives, and hunts or searches _for_ them. Not that it matters, because there's not much chasing or hunting going on in this book. There isn't much Knuth, either. We see him in the first hundred pages, which is mostly about his son analyzing poker software. That's the last we see of either of them. Because, really, this is "The Biography of Pawn." We do get 50 pages of Knuth at the end of the book, but don't get excited: it's all from the last book, added as obvious filler.
Speaking of filler, there's a 17 page advertorial thrown in for BiDiBLAH, which is commercial software by SensePost. Oddly enough, they're listed as technical advisors for the book. I'm sure it's a fine app, but the authors have forgotten about Knuth again, since it has nothing to do with the story. If it had been relevant, it might have been a less obnoxious addition.
Not everything is bad. There's a brief bit about RFID, which of course turns into how to use RFID for SQL attacks. We get to meet Knuth's supposedly dead wife, and a charming shrew she is. All in all, though, this book isn't worth reading unless you're a truly devoted fan of the series, or SQL. I'm still a fan of the previous books, and I hope the authors can recapture what made them so intriguing for their next book. I won't be buying that one until I'm sure it's not Book Two of the Pawn Saga, however.

I am currently working on system, the involves Oracle Spatial technology. This book was going to be me first step (almost) towards getting familliar with Spatial. I was little anxious about the level expected from the book's reader: "Intermediate-Advanced"; I haven't exactly felt like "advanced" in Oracle technology. It wasn't so bad; the book is really well written and I had no problems with understanding anything.
The book consists of six parts (including appendices). All the parts cover following subjects:
- Introduction to the technology. Technologies, to be exact; architectures of both, Spatial and Locator options are described -
differences between them.
- Basic concepts - basic know-how. The part, I needed the most met my expectations in 100%. It helped me to start coding really fast.
- Network analysis - more advanced subjects covered, the mostly ARE NOT available in Locator option (one I have access to); network analysis and routing engine, geometry engine. Also indexes and operators are described in one chapter of the book.
- Map Visualisation and creation - a lot of knowlege about MapBuilder, MapViewer and it's API - really helpful for anybody, who needs to visualize maps stored in Spatial.
- Sample applications and case studies - I always look for such chapter in every IT book I read. This is the place, where programmer might find a lot of answers to one's questions. There is also a chapter in this part, the belongs to the category "MUST read" - "Tips, common mistakes and common errors".
There is also sample code available for the readers - to be downloaded from the publisher's web page. It is really helpful to have it while reading the book. There is only one "but" - was, to be exact. About two weeks after the book had been published, the code wasn't available on the page. At least, I couldn't find it. Now it is possible to download it from here.
The book is really good - "must have" of every Oracle Spatial user. It might be helpful for the beginner and advanced developers as well. I would recommend it to everyone, who needs to get to know Oracle Spatial well. All the 756 pages (excluding index) are filled with reliable knowledge, especially that one of the authors - Ravi Kothuri is a member of Oralce spatial development team, where he works as software architect and team leader.

How to Measure Anything: Finding the Value of "Intangibles" in Business Review

How to Measure Anything: Finding the Value of Intangibles in Business
Average Reviews:

(More customer reviews)
Hubbard explains how to "find the value of intangibles in business." An excellent book and one which should be on every manager's book shelf.
Hubbard has made what can be a deadly dull subject interesting and accessible. I found several examples for measuring exactly what I needed and always felt I could not measure. This book is a must read for leaders including the Master Six Sigma Blackbelt on your staff. Finding the value of intangibles in business has always been a challenge. How to Measure Anything is full of practical ideas for getting to a measurement.
Measurement: reducing the uncertainty. As long as we are not willing to accept a best guess, or educated estimate, or range of possibilities for a difficult to measure item we will not move forward. Our decisions will be flawed. Hubbard put forth these four assumptions which I found to be most useful when thinking about measuring:
1.Your problem is not as unique as you think
2.You have more data than you think
3.You need less data than you think
4.There is a useful measurement that is much simpler than you think.

Numbers can be used to confuse people; especially the gullible ones lacking basic skills with numbers. Therefore we, as leaders, must be committed to making sure the whole organization is data driven and understands the way we can reduce uncertainty through the straight forward techniques Hubbard explains. As he states, "The fact is that the preference for ignorance over even marginal reductions in ignorance is never the moral high ground."
Hubbard gives us a very useful check list for a Universal Approach to Measurement:
1.What are you trying to measure? What is the real meaning of the alleged "intangible?"
2.Why do you care -- what's the decision and where is the "threshold?"
3.How much do you know now -- what ranges or probabilities represent your uncertainty about this?
4.What is the value of the information? What are the consequences of being wrong and the chance of being wrong, and what, if any, measurement effort would be justified?
5.Within a cost justified by the information value, which observations would confirm or eliminate different possibilities? For each possible scenario, what is the simplest thing we should see if that scenario were true?
6.How do you conduct the measurement that accounts for various types of avoidable errors (again, where the cost is less than the value of the information)?
I especially enjoy the approach Hubbard takes to quantify the cost of making measurement based on the value of the information obtained. Too often, I have seen projects founder on either inaction to get data which would be of great value and little cost or, perhaps, the exact opposite -- spending great amounts of time and money to obtain relatively useless information.
To emphasize: After reading Hubbard's excellent book on `How to Measure Anything,' I was able to immediately solve several measurement challenges for my CEO and Business Owner colleagues. This book makes accessible measurement techniques that have eluded many of my colleagues. It should be on every manager's desk. - Dave Kinnear, CEO dbkAssociates, Inc. and Vistage Chair.

Praise for How to Measure Anything: Finding the Value of Intangibles in Business"I love this book. Douglas Hubbard helps us create a path to know the answer to almost any question in business, in science, or in life . . . Hubbard helps us by showing us that when we seek metrics to solve problems, we are really trying to know something better than we know it now.

Hubbard bridges the gaps to make college statistics relevant and valuable for business decisions."-Ray GilbertEVP Lucent"This book is remarkable in its range of measurement applications and its clarity of style.

This book, written in 1998 and revised in 2000, by Internet time standards can be considered outdated at the time of this writing (August 2002). The author unfortunately touched on a number of Web sites and tactics that nowadays are either dead (Web sites) or considered bad internet marketing practices (redirecting, use of link farms) that could actually get you delisted. The section on traffic analysis at least talks about a professional tool (WebTrends) but then goes down a long and unnecessarily technical talk about web logs that is sure to bore the heck out of non-technical readers. If you don't mind getting spammed big time, by registering for some of the services the author recommends that are still around, and don't mind dropping in the ranks of Google at all, then get this book and follow its advice. Otherswise, download (and pay) for a license of WebPosition Gold and read the book that Amazon sells about it.

If you have not had any (or very little) exposure to digital marketing, by all means buy the book and read it. However, for anyone who has had some experience with digital marketing the last 5 years, this book offers very little new thinking (unless you are really bad at your job).
While the book is full of examples, if flows poorly. The author's points seem to get lost in a somewhat poor structure, and too many points thrown at the user without a proper flow to it. The author should definitely look into pyramid consulting techniques in order to present better. And given the author's savvy in online marketing, it does make me wonder whether the other reviews are legitimate.
But again, if you are a CEO, or non-marketing exec, or an "old school" marketer, this books seems like a useful intro to you. But you should be out reading Techcrunch, Marketing 2.0, Mobilemarketer, Mashable etc etc on a daily basis, and you would not only learn just as quick, you'd stay more current.

ColdFusion 9 Developer Tutorial
Average Reviews:

There were/are tons of typo's in the code samples and throughout. In addition 0 - ZERO effort was made to update the book from Coldfusion 8. The samples and images still have references made to CF 8. Some of the code simply wouldn't work as it was written even after removing the typos. The last 3 chapters of the book were devoted to packages outside of Coldfusion. This bothered me a little as it wasn't a whose who but more of a use this. A tutorial is suppose to teach you how to get up and running and be successful not pimp other group's projects.
In the end I had to give it a couple stars because I did manage to learn the material; however, in some cases it's because I had to fix so many typos and figure out the right way to do something. I spent a lot of time looking up issues with Google.
And don't even bother looking at the blog they point you to in the beginning of the book. It's simply a shell with no substance. To get the code samples you actually need to go to the Packt publishing website. The samples don't match up very well with the book either. Many times when you look at what he tells you to type and use and then go look at the sample it will have twice as much code in it.
In one particular section he doesn't even tell you about a bunch of components you need that he just glosses over. It would have been better to spend a chapter on these extended components and how to do that instead of those other third party tag packages at the end of the book.

As someone intimately involved with the defense industry, it is an absolutely outstanding companion to business development, strategy, etc. It has applicability well beyond the small business realm, and has particularly outstanding insights into the proposal management process, far stronger material than provided in the Shipley materials.

37 Days to Launch Review

37 Days to Launch
Average Reviews:

(More customer reviews)
If you've ever had a business idea and wanted to pick the brain of someone who knows what they're doing, the snappy and inspiring book "37 Days to Launch" is a valuable resource. Ryan Duques, entrepreneur and force to be reckoned with, shares the passion and know-how that helped him launch more than a dozen business ventures, including a chain of community newspapers, an online education company, and even a bank.
Duques chronicles his entrepreneurial journey through funny anecdotes (selling his parents their own coffee in the morning when he was 7) and serious reflection. He explains what he learned along the way and how those lessons shaped his business development technique. Some of his ideas were successful, some weren't, but many were launched quickly and all with palpable excitement. The book focuses on a particular startup he and business partner James Warner developed and launched in 37 days: the group deal website
The book features actual material from the brainstorming and execution process, including e-mails to designers and programmers, prospective logos he and Warner chose from, and their thought process every step of the way. Although the book revolves around launching a profitable website, the ideas and steps can apply to any goal.
This book speaks to anyone who has an idea but needs a kick in the pants to shut down the excuses and negative self-talk, stop waiting for the "perfect" time (there isn't one), quit worrying that it will take too long (done right, it doesn't have to), and get moving on systematically achieving their dreams. When you finish reading "37 Days to Launch", you'll want to sit down and set up your own plan for success.

Bang Colombia: Textbook On How To Sleep With Colombian Women Review

Bang Colombia: Textbook On How To Sleep With Colombian Women
Average Reviews:

(More customer reviews)
I read this book before coming to Colombia and continue re-reading it while in Colombia for tons of valuable tips. If you're coming to Colombia and are interested in meeting Colombian women, this book is a great resource for outlining the cultural differences and the challenges you'll face as an outsider. I'd spent a lot of time in other South American countries, but even so, there were big differences in Colombia that Bang Colombia fortunately prepared me for.
At times it's almost eerie how dead-on the descriptions of cultural behavior matched my experiences in real life. My only complaint is that the Spanish text in the book is a bit erroneous or different from the provided English equivalent. Not a huge deal practically, since if you don't know Spanish and need to use verbatim lines from the book, you'll likely be making mistakes anyway.
It's a pretty short book, but it's packed with good information and will certainly save you from a lot of pitfalls and wasted time if you've never been to Colombia.

Mastering Blender Review

Mastering Blender
Average Reviews:

I am a Blender wannabe. I know I'll never be anything more than a tinkerer with it and I certainly don't have the artistic ability to do anything serious with it. Blender is an open source, free 3D program with an impressive list of capabilities. In fact, Blender rivals commercial programs costing thousands of dollars.
"Mastering Blender" is the third Tony Mullen book I've read and it is as impressive as the first two. But Mullen's books are aimed at people who are actually quite proficient with Blender. As Mullen puts it, he is writing for "intermediate and advanced" Blender users. If you've attempted to use Blender, you'll immediately recognize that even achieving the intermediate stage of proficiency requires many hours of learning and doing.
That said, there is nothing that prevents the patient novice Blender user from reading, looking at the pictures and, in my case, gasping both at what Blender can do and at the people like Mullen who can do it.
The first chapter is actually helpful to inexperienced users, as it describes how you can gain control of the Blender interface.
After that, it is strictly for the more advanced and capable user. Sculpting and Retopo Workflow explores sculpting; Creating Realistic Images with UV Textures and Node-Based Materials covers texturing snd then Mullen moves into Video Compositing, which is a Blender feature I didn't know existed.
The next six chapters cover scripting Blender with Python, another revelation, and mastering the Blender Game Engine.
Mullen appears to be one of the most knowledgeable Blender users on the planet. His writing style tends to be matter of fact and very straight-forward. His coverage of each of his subject areas is very thorough. There are many large and clear illustrations.
Overall, though it is highly doubtful that I will personally ever be able to use these Blender capabilities, I really enjoyed learning about them through Mullen's ably crafted book.
