5-0 out of 5 stars Great Reference Book
This is a great reference book for UMTS and does a great job of explaining real world examples of protocol flows.I have all of the other "standard issue" UMTS book both on the RAN and Core, this is the only one that covers all aspects.

5-0 out of 5 stars A true introductory book on Control Engineering
A true introductory book on Control Engineering
5-0 out of 5 stars Great book!
This book helped me a lot while I was studing Control Theory at college. It has very clear examples and it is well written.

4-0 out of 5 stars For whom want to master the subject!
This text is not just thorough in its covered material. It covers more material than all other undergrad. level control texts I've ever seen. It treats thoroughly both state-space and the transform approaches which makes this text somehow unique. The text opens your eyes to the P,PI,PD and PID controllers in the very beginning which is thrilling for first time control students. As a matter of fact, the text is more focused on mechanical engineers interests than those of the electrical engineers. I consider the concept itself neutral :) which ECS/EE majors might share with ME(s).

5-0 out of 5 stars Landscape Lighting 101
The Landscape Lighting book, by Janet Moyer, provides both an academic and practical level of landscaping lighting knowledge. Another good book, if you can find it, is the Ortho's book of How to Design and Install Outdoor Lighting.
5-0 out of 5 stars The Art and Craft of Landscape Lighting
The second edition of Janet Lennox Moyer's THE LANDSCAPE LIGHTING BOOK is an absolute necessity for everybody who works in landscape lighting or who is seriously interested in creating their own garden lighting. Ms Moyer has greatly revised and expanded the color plates and Chapter 4, "The Design Process - Documenting and Installing Landscape Lighting" as well as writing an entirely new Chapter 5 "Follow-up Work - Record Documents and Project Maintenance." These changes and additions and the many other updates make the new edition well worth the purchase price.
5-0 out of 5 stars expert opinion
Still the best book for the professional.Invaluable resource for architects, landscape architects and landscape lighting designers.Broad and deep with plenty of technical information.I purchased this book in1992 and I bought it again today (an electrician friend "lost" myoriginal copy).A second edition (if planned) should include betterinformation about transformer regulation (the ability of a low voltagelighting transformer to maintain 12v under load) and voltage drop (thedreaded decrease in voltage through the main supply cable) which arepresented as formulae rather than actual measurements.Great photographsmostly of large scale projects.This book should be in every outdoorlighting designer's library.

5-0 out of 5 stars Never out in print fast enough
Paul Aubin has done it again.Like my title says, Paul Aubin's books never come out fast enough for me.This book is a great resource for ADT users.There have been a lot of changes since ADT first came out.The major changes started in ADT 2004 and continue on thru ADT 2007.The changes from ADT 2006 to ADT 2007 are covered very well in this book.He takes you step by step thru a residential project & a commercial project.As you go thru the book he not only shows you how you command(s) work, but also why.He also gets into the subtle changes that have come about, e.g. Visual Styles.The books is arranged in such a way that you can be productive in ADT 2007 as you go along in the book.You don't have to wait until you are completed with the book to be productive.You can also move around in the book to go over a certain part of ADT without having to work your way up to it.For example, if you are just getting thru adding windows & doors & your work project needs to add a roof, you can go to the section of the book that covers roofs & you will be able to understand how to work roofs from reading the section withour having to do the sections before.But, if you can, go thru the book in the order that it's written to get the best grasp of ADT that you can.You can truly expect your skills to rise at least one level from going thru the book.

The book is very comprehensive and gives a very accurate picture of what to expect on your plumbing exam. It makes learning the code fun and you will find out what you don't know quickly. Use it in conjuction with your code book to look up areas you are weak in. If you can answer eighty percent of the questions in the "Study Guide" correctly you will probably pass your test. It's the best book of its kind. FIVE STARS. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars save your money for Physical Organic Chemistry - by Dougherty & Anslyn
This book is written at the undergraduate level.The figures are a joke.It's a paperback and will fall apart.If you are in graduate school; buy the text by Anslyn & Dougherty instead.It is a nice hard bound book, durable & weighs a ton. Its worth the money and the weight in your backpack.

1-0 out of 5 stars Horrible
It is now more than a month after I was supposed to receive this book and I have not gotten it yet, what the hell is going on.

4-0 out of 5 stars Update of a Classic
This is an update on a classic text that has been used by many graduate and advanced undergraduate students. The core of the book is still an excellent survey of older literature and of enormous use to students.There are also many excellent problems.Unfortunately,there is not as much new material or references in some sections.I found I had to frequently supplement the text with current readings.The use of modern theory is especially lacking. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Thermal Fluid book
shipped in a very reasonable time, was in good condition, price was very fair. Great value

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for learning the FUNDAMENTALS.
I thought this was a very well written, organized book.The concepts were explained very clearly.It was great to finally find an understandable book on this subject; other thermo/fluids books that I have read haven't been as informative and comprehendable.2-0 out of 5 stars A couple of comments
I will begin with the good things. This book contains a LOT of information. The tables are very extensive, and the subject matter is very broad. The derivations are generally easy to follow and I found the text itself even enjoyable to read at times. These things upped my opinion of the book from one star to two. However, the example problems are generally not sufficient to help with the far more complex problems in the back of the chapters. As a further frustration, only about a sixth of the problems include the solutions. The end result is that for a homework one is left leafing through the book in a futile search for more extensive guidance on the very extensive problems, all the while not knowing if you didn't mess up the problem already in the first calculation you made. For example, I have this textbook for my second course in fluid dynamics. For my first homework, I had a three day weekend to complete 3 problems. 30+ work hours later (and one shot weekend) I have no idea if I'm right on the first one and I'm still stuck on the last one. I dislike having to go to reciation, so it's not unusual for me to spend lots of time on problems and reading the book in order to figure out the homeworks on my own. But this book is quite frankly kicking my arse. Considering that this is my second fluids course (I'm an aerospace eng student) you would think I would be better at fluids. However, my first fluids textbook was also a Cengel book, and that book was next to useless as well. My overall conclusion: A great book for reading and catching derivations with lots of good tables and a wide array of topics. But it's a huge frustration waiting to happen if you plan on working the problems/preparing for an exam. ... Read more

I bought this to help organize my project boards, which it is great for. The bonus is the information on rendering. There was better information here than in the other 2 books I own on color theory and rendering.

5-0 out of 5 stars Should be assigned as a text
This is a thoroughly engrossing, still-relevant treatment of the history of oil and its effect on history.Many of the events recounted are familiar from high school and college history courses, but in the typical linear-timeline of such studies, the interconnectedness of oil toward other major historical events is often lost.This book puts all that in perspective, neatly tieing other technological and political events across 150 years to the rise of oil and its use in the internal combustion engine.I strongly agree with an earlier comment on this book, "if you don't know the history of oil, you don't know history."

This book will help understand the current geopolitical landscape and the "great" democracies intervention in the middle east.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent excellent book
I have enjoyed this book enormously throughout. While there are a fairly large number of radar books available, this is the first that I have read that lays out the signal processing aspects of radar in such a coherent, pedagogically sound, and self-contained way, generally from first principles. For example, the exposition of slow and fast time processing throughout the book was very illuminating, as was the connection drawn between the Neyman-Pearson receiver and the matched filter.The only other text I have seen that combines such clarity of vision, readability, and rigor is the book by Peebles, which unfortunately has little material on digital radar signal processing.
5-0 out of 5 stars Superior treatment
This is a superior book! There is nothing comparable in either the general radar or the signal processing literature. It provides an exceptionally clear treatment of difficult subject matter. The author patiently guides the reader through radar basics and then into the depths of the associated data processing concepts. The treatment is so lucid that even a neophyte can expect to develop a deep understanding of the concepts involved and be able to apply them immediately (i.e.,When the boss comes in and says, "You're my radar expert. Tell me how you're going to process the all the data!", this book is the antidote to the ensuing panic attack.). The clarity of the brief radar dicussions throughout the text (e.g., the SAR chapter)will provide glimmers of additional insight on radar even to those with indepth knowledge of the area.

5-0 out of 5 stars FEMALE AFRICAN BUSH PILOT IN THE 30's GIVES INSIDE VIEW
Beryl Markham's book West with the Night is a true story of how she lived and worked in Africa as a push pilot back in the 1930's -- almost amazing for a woman...what an experience alone-- what an adventure-- but her writing -- ahhh that's something amazing in itself....from dealing with the Blackwater Die to the lion who almost ate her to search for a Libyan port and a fallen colleague-- a beautiful book...each chapter is written almost like a true short story....she's a beautiful writer and to think this is a piece of our women's past that is here to still cherish-- belongs on the shelf of every women's studies office...great for a young woman to read....especially great gift to a chick going off to college.

5-0 out of 5 stars Beautifully Written
West With the night is Beryl Markham's memoir of life as a bush pilot in 1930s Africa. The beautifully written prose paints evocative pictures of the Serengeti in the reader's brain, and each paragraph is dense and satisfying. A wonderful read, especially for fans of Out of Africa - and some of the same people are mentioned in this book.
5-0 out of 5 stars Probably the most beautifully written book I have ever read.
The exceptional wordcrafting in West With The Night brings Africa alive and makes it almost a personal experience. Beryl Markham was a most interesting individual and her life growing up in Africa is the beautiful background for this book. I have only reread one book in my sixty-some years and this is it. I enjoyed it at least as much the second time around.

5-0 out of 5 stars THE Performance Management Authority
Daniels provides the most important explanation of performance management out there.As Director of HR for a mid-sized service-based organization, I can attest to the theories in Performance Management as being nothing but clearer, easier to apply, and more effective (simply superior) to those contained in the other seven or so books I've read on the same subject.The information presented in Performance Management will motivate your employees to set higher goals and achieve superior results; better yet, they will actually enjoy doing it. This book is truly essential for any manager or supervisor in search of improving their employees' performance, and, in turn, organizational success.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best explanation of PM
This is the best explanation of the underlying principles available.It is clearly written, accurate and comprehensive, as well as easy to read.

5-0 out of 5 stars I was there.
I was one of the students in Don Coduto's graduate level class that helped him "use" this book when it was in the final review stages.We helped him find all the little mistakes before final publishing.I still carry around that old 700+ page volume of a notebook we had for that class.It's nice to see it finally published.It is an OUTSTANDING book making geotechincal work more readily accessible to the average engineer.The example problems will help one grasp the concepts faster.Don can always be contacted with questions as well.ENJOY.

This excellent text eased my transition from analytical chemistry work and toxicology into the fascinating field of geotechnical engineering, helping me grasp both the methodology and the reasoning behind numerous geotechnical analyses -- from the most fundamental basics of soil classification to the empirical, working, and theoretical underpinnings of rising head/falling tail flexible membrane permeametry. Coduto's book also sheds rays of light upon the ephemeral calculations beloved by the writers of ASTM methodology: Get this book, you will not be disappointed! ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars perhaps a starting point
Flow technology was once used at our organization but has been replaced by the traditional Lean and Six-Sigma tools and initiatives. Please make note the some formulas and definitions used in DFT are significantly different than standard Lean items and will cause confusion and some resistance if you try to mix them. Cycle time, takt time and kanban sizing are some examples. I purchased my book for a reference in addressing such issues.

5-0 out of 5 stars Practical and tactical
After reading lots of books on the subject of modern-day manufacturing, Mr. Costanza's book had one thing that the others didn't. It strongly focuses on the practical deployment of Flow and Lean Manufacturing - most others merely describe the subject from a philosophical perspective. The book contains what you need to know about the subject. It enables you go out and start improving your business. Our company actually gained substantial benefits from implementing the tools described. It's a pure career booster!

5-0 out of 5 stars Yes Indeed.
Yes indeed this book was/is (I still crack it open)very helpful to me. Before I read this book, or took the class that used this book, I was a very bad speller. My grammer was poor and my writing technique was even worse. If this book helped me I am sure it will help you.

5-0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Guide to Business Writing
This book is an excellent tool for writing, especially for the non-native English writer. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in a study guide with many examples that have been updated for the current business environment. The numerous samples and the grammar review are veryhelpful for studying the fundamentals. This book is extremely relevant in abusiness world crowded with a cornucopia of poor writing, misspelling, andincorrect grammar usage. My heartfelt thanks to Ms. Guffey for writing suchan excellent guide. ... Read more
