2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointingly shallow/superficial!, August 7, 2016
This book is a bitter in the mouth disappointment at the end since it makes the claim that Category Theory (Mathematics of Mathematics) serves the purpose of illumination (WHY: understanding versus knowledge) but there is no way you will come out with a feel on why this claim is a honest/trustworthy claim. I give author the credit for setting the stage for making this grand claim of light (of understanding) -- just that there is no illumination on illumination ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Great product -- just one caveat, February 2, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a high quality product. Before buying you should be familiar with this warning included in product packaging:

Warning Message

Turn off "Shut Off T-Valve lever" after each use to close the water supply to the Bidet Sprayer Head. If you choose to not turn off the valve lever, you risk weakening the internal components of the sprayer and hose, or exposing your home to water damage or flooding. The valve lever is conveniently located on the shut off T-valve adapter and takes only a moment to shut off.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this battery in February 2015 from TechTrey Storefront ... now it is December 2015 and the battery does not charge fully or abruptly shuts down laptop around 50%. What is the point of buying this battery if it does not last even one year! I will not buy from TechTrey Storefront again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book that both prepares and inspires, March 23, 2015
This book contains a variety of problems. Each problem both reinforces material and teaches a new method or idea. The book also investigates many parts of calculus and prepares the reader well for the AP Calculus BC exam. When I read a new concept, I make sure to attempt problems from the book because they really help solidify my understanding.

5.0 out of 5 stars What has order and size got to do with proofs!?, May 21, 2012
If we try to grasp the concept of proof and contradiction in the context of Russel's paradox (very simple to state, yet difficult to grasp the exact source of logical inconsistency), it is often cited that Russel's set is too large and its sheer size gives rise to antinomy. One may ask what has size got to do with proofs or contradiction? Why we leap into contradiction when we deal with too large sets? At what size do we cross boundary from consistency and completeness into contradiction? The story of big numbers (roads to infinity) mirrors story of human progress. This book tells that story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Knowing the rule framework helps immensely!, May 23, 2011
I am sharing a small practical example to illustrate the worth of this beautiful book! I recently joined a company which is the leader in web application acceleration and performance management, streaming media services and content delivery. Many of the rules in this collection helped me to grasp the scalability architecture and principles at my new job very quickly, few are listed below:

Rule 4 -- Reduce DNS Lookups
Chapter 6 -- Using Caching Aggressively (several rules)
Rule 16 -- Actively Use Log Files
Rule 29 -- Failing to Design for Rollback Is Designing for Failure

The fact is if you consider yourself a scalability/infrastructure/cloud architect or manager, this book is a must. I have experienced first hand the rule of "Failing to Design for Rollback Is Designing for Failure" ... so I have deep appreciation of the authors great service in codifying the technical-management scalability framework.

5.0 out of 5 stars Technical scalability is only a part of organizational scalability -- know all about it!, January 10, 2010
Imagine a highly scalable architecture of a successful ecommerce company.
If you visualize distributed data centers, content distribution networks,
Brewers CAP theorem etc you have only half of the scalability story.
This book tells the whole story of organizational scalability of which
technical scalability is only a part. Consider some examples like how do
you perform reliable change management of a vast infrastructure to
maintain business continuity or what should be the model for unambiguous
responsibility-accountibility in a scalable organization.

I have worked in a critical scalability project of PayPal.com and can vouch
that this book is a gem.

5.0 out of 5 stars The ideas in the book are worth exploring, February 9, 2002
Agreed that XML may not be the best language to capture domain
specification expressiveness. But use of XML/XSLT to do
custom code generation has the benifit of rapid application
prototyping and development. The crucial fact is that the
domain specification is captured in XML only relatively few times
and project software developers mainly use the generated code.
The question is how many people in the project is exposed
to 'ugliness' of XML and how many times. The advantages
of 'neat' code generation far outweigh the disadvantages
of 'ugliness' of domain specification in XML.
In a real Network Management Software development I achieved
60% of generated code (EJB, SNMP, Java utilities) by using
custom code generation by XML/XSLT. Only myself dealt with
XML other software developers happily used generated code. You
can imagine the lead the project had and continues to have
because of use of XML/XSLT in project specific custom code
generation. The code generation system is stable now -- any new
addition in EJB, SNMP model results in thousands of lines of
Java/SQL/XML/SVG code without any additional effort.
I would, therefore, continue to recommend the book as worth
exploring. This book really contributed new techniques in
software development. More specically with XML/XSLT you have
freely available tools to implement "model driven programming"
in your software project.
