Coaching Soccer Successfully: U9/U10 Season Plan
Coaching Soccer Successfully: U9/U10 Season Plan
Price: $3.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Good content, needs fixes, September 20, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book has some good drill ideas, but is hard to read and has a number of formatting issues. Maybe a good addition for an experienced coach, but leaves too much out to be helpful to a novice coach.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very much like Edgar Rice Burroughs, February 17, 2010
This review is from: Planet of Adventure (Paperback)
If you enjoyed the John Carter of Mars series, I think you'll enjoy this colletion of books. It's a bit darker than ERB as I remember them, but very much in the same genre.

2.0 out of 5 stars No errata???, September 16, 2009
I'm floored that I'm shelling out $100 for this textbook and the publisher make *no* errata available for download. I've been using this textbook for all of a week, and I've already found two mistakes in chapter 2 alone. Chapter 2 is stuff I already *know*. What am I supposed to do for material I'm learning?

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible textbook, May 7, 2007
If this is the third edition, I'd hate to see the first two. This book is unclear and full of typos. Here's a characteristic sentence, the first one in the book: "The amount of information available to us is literally exploding, and the value of data as an organizational asset is widely recognized." I'm sure the editor's ears are literally burning for letting that howler out.

There are many other books out that are suitable for an intro to databases course. This book is coming up on five years old, and it doesn't even have an online errata list. Any technical book needs active maintenance, and this book isn't getting any.

As another example of where this book falls short, take a look at the Perl section of the book. What sense is there in a database book talking about Perl, but lacking an example of how to use Perl's DBI module?

So to summarize, buy this book if you absolutely must, but make sure you have access to a couple of other good database books like Date's "Database in Depth" or Lewis-Bernstein-Kifer, otherwise you might flounder with this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre, May 18, 2004
Too complicated to use as a tutorial, and too simple to use as a reference. This book tries to be both and does a poor job of it. Buy this book if you absolutely have to (like I did, for a class at the U of MN); otherwise I'm sure there are other books out there that can do a better job.
P.S. - I found at least one typo in chapter 1. Can you find it? :-)
