Excerpt: Mike Holmes (born 3 August 1963) is a Canadian professional contractor best known for his television show Holmes on Homes where he rescues homeowners from renovations gone wrong. Mike Holmes learned his craft from his father, who started teaching him construction work (i.e. electrical, plumbing) when he was 6 years old. By the time he was 19, Holmes had started his first contracting company, with a crew of 13 employees. At 21, Holmes founded his own renovation company. He has run two companies during his 20-year contracting career. His three children, Amanda, Sherry and Mike Jr, have all worked on his shows. In 2006 Holmes started The Holmes Foundation after seeing a renovation that was so poorly done that he felt it was easier for him to tear the house down and start again rather than try to repair the damage. The purpose of The Holmes Foundation is to encourage young people to enter the building trades as well as to assist those who have been impoverished by bad renovations. Mike is well known for his contribution to the international community through his work with SOS Childrens Villages. In 2006 Mike Holmes was recognized in Canadas House of Commons for his promotion of skilled trades and for his advocacy for improved building standards. He was acknowledged as an extraordinary craftsperson ...More: http://booksllc.net/?id=1434795 ... Read more

Product Description
Swing is a fully-featured user interface development kit for Java applications.Building on the foundations of the Abstract Window Toolkit (AWT), Swing enables cross-platform applications to use any of several pluggable look-and-feels.Swing developers can take advantageof its rich, flexible features and modular components, building elegant user interfaces with very little code.This second edition of Java Swing thoroughly covers all the features available in Java 2 SDK 1.3 and 1.4. More than simply a reference, this new edition takes a practical approach. It is a book by developers for developers, with hundreds of useful examples, from beginning level to advanced, covering every component available in Swing.Whether you're a seasoned Java developer or just trying to find out what Java can do, you'll find Java Swing, 2nd edition an indispensable guide.Amazon.com Review
Java Swing, long regarded as the authoritative book on using the Swing classes, is available in a new edition that builds on a solid foundation in exploring the Java 2 Swing additions and modifications. This is a big, tremendously detailed, exhaustively researched, and ultimately authoritative reference that pushes the limits of what a book can do toward eliminating the necessity of writing experimental programs to see how Swing classes work in practice. You'll find in these pages bits of software that show how most of Swing works: all of the major features get lavish attention, while most of the minor classes are demonstrated adequately, as well.

You could probably find demonstrations free of charge on the Internet, however. The true value of this work is in the comments its five authors have attached to their copious examples. They can be quite specific: at least one such segment warns that default Swing behavior violates Mac OS X user interface guidelines and explains how to work around the problem. Another section explains how the methods of the UndoableEdit class can be used in various ways, to implement different user interface behavior options. Some readers will head straight to the O'Reilly Web site, where they can grab the code and examine it in an editor rather than in print--code listings take up a lot of space here--but everyone will appreciate the concise hierarchy, method, and property documentation, as well as the wisdom contained in the prose. --David Wall

Topics covered: The Swing classes for creating graphical user interfaces in the Java programming language. It covers all the windowing stuff--dialogs, buttons, containers, layouts, lists, and that kind of thing--as well as tables, trees, text-manipulation classes, formatted text, drag and drop, and accessibility support. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars not bad!
Some more damage than described, but still a great deal for $5.Would buy again.

1-0 out of 5 stars not what i paid for
A purchased a brand new book. When I got it the cover was creased in half.
The book is amazing but the shipping care was poor. I should have just got a used book. bad job amazon

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Informative -- A desktop quick reference
This book does a very good job of consolidating all of the information regarding Swing that can be found on the internet and putting it into one book.Just be sure to note that it is HUGE.

It contains many interesting code examples and pictures.It takes every JObject (such as JLabel, JFrame, JTable) and compares what they would look like among different look and feels.

I highly reccomend it for any Java desktop programmer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Encyclopedic tome on Swing is a greatreference
This extremely hefty book on Swing has just about everything in it. However, it is intended to be a reference on Swing, not a tutorial. The problem with the Java Swing API is that it is so large and unwieldy itself that it is difficult to write a complete and useful reference that does not reflect that fact. If you need a good tutorial on Java Swing, you might want to look at the Core Java books by Cornell and read the chapters that apply to Swing. Cornell manages to carve out the basics of writing a Swing application very clearly without getting wrapped around the axle in details you do not need if you are a beginner. Then, come back to this book when you need to write an application to get the details you need. Since everything in Swing is a JavaBean, much of each component's behavior is controlled by a set of properties that are manipulated by accessor methods. Thus, this book has a table for each class that presents the class properties, the data type for each property, the accessor methods, and the default values. In addition, the book has plenty of demonstration code that shows how to use just about all of the various Swing components. The book even has chapters dedicated to changing the look and feel of components and also repainting issues, which loom large in Swing. You can download all of the book's code from the book's website at O'Reilly and Associates. I highly recommend this book to anyone who already knows the bare basics of writing applications with Swing and needs a useful reference. There is no better one out there in publication of which I am aware.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Book With a Bad Title
This is for people who have a working knowledge of Swingand who want a comprehensive reference on their desks. I ampreparing for the java Developer exam and thought this would help me get up to speed with Swing. But this is an over kill. Trying to learn Swing with this book is like trying to open a can of Coke with a bulldozer. It would have been more helpful if the Title was something like 'Swing Reference'. If you want to learn some Swing to get some work done very quickly stay away. If you are in the Guru class then go for it. 4 stars because it is indeed a well written reference (Juding from Chapter 1 and 3 and some skimming) But not 5 stars because the Title is misleading ...

From the supplier: A variety of Republican and conservative leaders believe conservatives in the 1990s have failed to capitalize on the influence and impact of Ronald Reagan's presidency. Reagan united conservatives and showed them how to win on important issues. Without his leadership, the conservative movement has become fragmented. Reagan was successful because he was willing to take risks while standing firm on his core beliefs. Conservatives since Reagan have floundered, unable to articulate a Reagan-style vision.

Product Description

David Cameron has recently emerged as the first Tory leader in years to come across as a man of the people, an ordinary man in a traditionally reviled political position. This biography reveals more about the man behind the spin, and the first Tory leader in years to have a chance of leading the party to victory. It explores the future direction of the Conservatives and looks at several important questions: Is the current honeymoon evidence of a new Tory Party, or simply recognition that the appearance of newness is needed? Will he really be prepared to jeopardize the support of the traditional grass roots? How deep are his environmental credentials? How will he react when the press turns nasty? Does his success mark a return of the old class deference? Or is it the opposite, a sign that background, for better or worse, is now unimportant?

4-0 out of 5 stars The New Prime Minister
For many Americans, it takes a while for Prime Ministers of Britain to become known.Margaret Thatcher was not someone to be missed; Tony Blair lasted long enough to become a well-known figure in the United States, and his cooperation with George W. Bush showed that the 'special relationship' of the US and Britain transcended natural political affinities or disagreements (Blair, being of the Labour Party, would tend to be less naturally politically aligned with the conservative Bush).David Cameron has only been in office for a matter of weeks - his final ascent to the office was one of the more interesting climbs up the greasy pole in recent memory, given the situation with the hung Parliament and no clear majority for either major party.

So, as the news channels scrambled to report about the proceedings, I was surprised at the lack material available about David Cameron, the person most likely to succeed into the office of leader of America's traditional strongest ally.Who is this person?One of the few books available is that by Elliott and Hanning, both journalists by trade (which include among them both tabloids, broadsheets and quality papers).The book was originally put out a few years ago, and has been recently updated to account for the impending election (this revision still refers to Cameron as the most likely next Prime Minister).But at this point, it is too early to understanding Cameron as Prime Minister - what we need is to understand the kind of person he is, so we can anticipate what is likely to happen.

Prime Ministers are accustomed to a lot more control than Cameron, as a leader of a coalition, as leader in a time of extraordinary fiscal difficulty, will be able to exercise.Reading about Cameron's time at Eton and Oxford shows that this might not prove to be a difficulty for him.Cameron is used to being influential and adept at working in an environment where his isn't the primary authority; he is likely to be able to navigate the difficulties that affect his ability to direct the affairs of the nation that are beyond his control.(Author James Hanning lists Eton as one of his schools, which perhaps explains the great detail of Cameron's Etonian days in the text.)

Maurice Fraser is quoted as saying of Cameron that 'he was political to his fingertips' - this seems to be true of from his time at Eton, and even perhaps prior to that, when he was at the now-gone school Heatherdown.No one rises to the role of Prime Minister by accident, but Cameron's is almost a non-traditional rise given the number of Conservatives of late who have broken free from the public school / upper class to Oxford to Parliament mold.By hearkening back to elements of that older Tory establishment, but bringing in ideas and a keen appreciation of the Thatcher revolution, warts and all, he has the potential for becoming a model leader.

One thing that also informs Cameron is his experience with his son, Ivan.Ivan's disability (echoing in larger aspect some of the experiences of Cameron and his own father) and eventual death caused both Cameron and his wife to put things in perspective, and the authors discuss this.Cameron's relation with his wife, and her views of his upcoming premiership (she is said to have been rather explicit that she did not intend to be another Cherie Blair) are also discussed in good detail.

However, the bulk of the book is taken up with Cameron's political career, work with both the Conservative Party, departments of state, the House of Commons, and some stints of outside work.Not all voices presented in the book sing Cameron's praises - Maurice Saatchi and Robin Harris both have criticism for the apparent ease they sense in Cameron changing positions to suit political expediency.Of course, a week is a long time in politics, but Cameron has yet to develop the kind of rock-steady adherence to principles that Thatcher was noted for; on the other hand, there are many things that embedded in him that he is able to reconcile short-term decisions with a longer-term philosophy, according to many of his supporters.

In the epilogue, the authors state that 'David Cameron is said to have the "ability to hide in full view." Charm, confidence and intelligence keep him well defended even as he invites scrutiny.'This book does present an interesting and mostly positive view of Cameron, and is worth reading as a companion to the regular press reports, to help inform us of who this person is who now resides in No. 10 Downing Street.

3-0 out of 5 stars Revealing study of Tory leader
Francis Elliott, the Whitehall Editor of the Independent on Sunday, and James Hanning, an old Etonian and the Executive Editor of the Independent on Sunday, have written a fascinating biography of David Cameron, the leader of the opposition since 2005. The son of a stockbroker, who went to preparatory school, Eton and Oxford, Cameron has led a life `of gilded privilege, of nannies, swimming pools and friends in the City', as they describe it.

An Etonian said, "you are tough as nails, you are, and no one realises it." The phrase `not as nice as he seems' recurs. An Oxford friend said, "he loved the free market and Thatcher." Elliott and Hanning sum up, "he was, as university friends confirm, a dyed-in-the-wool Thatcherite."

Cameron worked at the Conservative Research Department from 1988 to 1992 and then as an adviser first to Chancellor of the Exchequer Norman Lamont and later to Home Secretary Michael Howard. A friend said, "David was very right wing in those days."

In 1992, Prime Minister John Major and Cameron's boss Lamont insisted that they had no plans to raise taxes, and then within a year signalled three years of tax rises in the 1993 budget. This `green' tax, of VAT on fuel, lifted the tax take by more than £10 billion by 1995. Cameron has pledged to make emissions cuts targets statutory.

In 1994, his fiancée's mother, a friend of Michael Green, chairman of Carlton Communications (the world's worst TV company), got him a £80K a year job as the firm's spin doctor. He worked there for seven years. Green said, "I think David can be ruthless ... he was as tough as they come." Others saw him as a smarmy bully.

Cameron said, "I am an instinctive hawk." He voted for the Iraq war, despite saying that he would not do so without proof of threat or a UN resolution. He was and is liberal on drugs and gays, hard-right on the economy, and neo-con on foreign policy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Insight Into a Life and Policies
This book is a great insight into one of the leading politicians in Britain today. From his years at Eton and Oxford to leading the opposition attacks on Labour in the House of Commons gallery, this piece of literature provides an accurate yet objective look into the intriguing life of the Honorable Mr. David Cameron. As well as a look at his policies and positions for the future of Great Britain and the world. I bought my copy while on a trip to London and as an American supporter of the MP am enthused to see that it will finally be available to all Americans. Overall I was very impressed by Francis Elliot and James Hannings portrayal of Mr. Cameron and would recommend to all who take a strong interest in UK politics and figures. ... Read more
