2.0 out of 5 stars Very primitive book that does not provide any insight, June 16, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
By the name of the book title, I fully expected a reference book that can guide you through the nuts and bolts of estate planning. However, the book provides only very basic knowledge. Probably only those who totally have no clue what estate planning is would find it marginally useful. In addition, the paper is of the quality of a paperback and that pretty much summarizes what you should expect from it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as it can be, November 2, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I rate it three stars for the following reasons:
1. It does not have native PDF support as some of the other readers have or will have, such as Sony's or BN's upcoming Nook. It makes reading PDF in foreign language a real pain, if not entirely impossible.
2. The screen is not back-lit. I understand it may be considered an advantage not to have the back-lit, but it can always come as an option for people who would like to read in the dark.
3. It does not support some of the populat formats, such as chm.

In all, it may be an okay reader for ordinary readers, who only want to read bestsellers, but it has left a lot to be desired to be a replacement for your library.

It does not come with a 4-pin to 4-pin firewire cable for my Sony Handycam to connect. Had to buy one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Way Better than Da Vinci Code, May 19, 2006
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Historian (Hardcover)
I bought this book last year in the summer, but did not get a chance to really dive into it until about one month ago. Fortunately for me, I did not read any reviews here before my journey. Granted it is a very long book, but 400 pages into it I do not feel any bit of tedious as some of the reviewers pointed out. This is not an ordinary Dracula book. Rather it is a book about Europe, history and people. I enjoy every bit of it. It is understandable that it is not as popular as Da Vinci Code because of the "fast food" culture here in US. People are just too impatient to enjoy some real literatures. However, it still puzzles me that so many people complained that they could not keep track of who is narrating. I am not a native English speaker, but I have never had problem so far figuring out who is talking. Am I missing anything here? Maybe this book is just not for everybody.


Thinking in Java

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book for C++ programmers, July 6, 2000
This review is from: Thinking in Java (Paperback)
If you are a C++ programmer, probably you may want to choose this one as a beginning guide for Java. I admit that the first half of the book is a little bit too much for anyone having C++ background. but it is not that bad to fresh your memory and to pick up some details of Java. Just go through it quickly and you will be able to find some real meat later. Thank you especially for the electronic version.
