5-0 out of 5 stars Bible for those who occasionally flip through sports mags
Ever tried to get a friend, family member such as a teenage son or daughter interested in reading the Bible? The NT:SPORT offers parents, grandparents and other people involved in the lives of youth a very readable version of the New Testament, with glossy pages, sports oriented themes, sidebars on nearly every page related to athletes, short quizzes and articles on sports, all surrounded by the texts of the New Testament. Call it contemporary marketing of the Bible if you like, but once people begin to develop the habit of reading the New Testament, their lives change for the better, being deepened in love for God, hope for the future, and love for neighbor. This is truly what our youth culture needs in this time.

Product Description
The year is 200X and everyone is now connected to the Cyber Network. People carry their own PET (Personal Terminal) and are paired up with an artificial intelligence program called a NetNavi (or NetNavigator). Computers have turned the world into a bright and shiny utopia but there's always trouble in paradise. While the invention of the PET and NetNavis has brought great benefits to the world, computer hacking, virus spreading and other high-tech crimes are becoming a major problem. A sinister organization by the name of World Three has appeared and theyÅfve vowed to destroy this technological wonderland. Enter our young hero, Lan Hikari, an intensely curious and cheerful fifth grader. Synchronized with his NetNavigator, MegaMan, he becomes a super-charged dynamo. In and out of the Net, Lan and MegaMan do their best to thwart World Three's never-ending quest to take over the world! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Manohman! So, so much fun!
In the year 200X, the whole world is connected to the Cyber Network. People jack in to the Net using handheld PCs called PETs, and each person has their own artificially intelligent avatar called a NetNavi.

Lan Hikari's is MegaMan, a truly sophisticated and powerful NetNavi programmed by his father.

Like any fifth grader in DenTech City, Lan passes the time by having NetBattles with his fellow classmates, pitting MegaMan up against any who would challenge him. The problem is, NetBattling is illegal unless you have a special license. But that's only part of the Lan's and MegaMan's problem. An evil organization called World Three is infecting computers with sinister viruses with the hope of one day taking over the world.

Lan jacks in and sends MegaMan to stop these viruses before it's too late.

This manga, which is similar to the anime of the same name, was a blast to read. Ryo Takamisaki's storytelling is topnotch--quick, exciting and a whirlwind of adventure from beginning to end. His art is your classic manga but with a cartoon flare, and the dialogue is perfect, conveying to us everything we need to know about the story, without it coming off as long-winded explanations for "what's happening."

The banter between Lan and MegaMan is pricelss, even better than in the anime.

This volume also contains a very intriguing cliffhanger ending and fun bonus story.

5-0 out of 5 stars Megaman is cool!!!
This book is really cool and fun! All the action and how he has to face his darloid copy is exciting. It really shows you all the details and is very dramatic for ex. when he has to perform the double soul with protoman. This is one of the best comic books i've ever read! All the Manga and the characters are reeeeeeally cool!

5-0 out of 5 stars Recommended for all who like megaman!!
Except for the character names, this book is pretty darn close to the games. It is funny fast paced and Mega-cool. In Vol. 8 there are 2 Mega-men: the real one and a darksoul copy. That is awesome but confusing if you haven't read vol. 7. The action scenes are nicely done and you can atually read the sound effects which are realistic. I like how bubbleman attacks megaman thinking he is the darksoul version. The first nt warrior manga/anime I bought was #3 and i understood it fully even though i had never before heard of the battle network series. Really good comic

5-0 out of 5 stars I LUV ROCKMAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ok, since they didnt change much of rockman(FINALLY) i REALLY liked this series. iv read all of the books in the "series". u can get these at borders and other book stores. they didnt take out much(as far as i can tell)and i highly recommend this. BUT TAKE NOTE: there is a LITTLE blood, so if u hav a little brother/sister, and even though the blood is black, DON'T SHOW THIS TO THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! the first book is ok tho...otherwise...im not so sure. X(. finally, i dont suggest skipping books....not fun. but this thing is HILARIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hehheh....enzan(chaud) as a chicken...i wonder how yaito(yai) thought of that...and i didnt know a portal could be a bed*snicker*...anyways...if u like this, then the regular rockman exe is for u...i highly suggest...

5-0 out of 5 stars MegaManga!
The manga version of MegaMan NT Warrior is really good.It follows the games more than the anime, but all the characters have their names from the TV show.
I rather liked this (I never could get used to Maylu being called "Mayl").
So far I've read volumes 1 through 6.I liked all the volumes for different respects: volume 1 because it introduces you to the series, volume 2 because it introduces Chaud Blaze (my favorite character), volume 3 because it's really funny in some places (especially in these scenes between MegaMan and PharaohMan and MegaMan and GateMan) and really gets the series moving, volume 4 (this one is probably my favorite) because it introduces a kid named Sean Obihiro from the games (however, he is going around under the alias "Kei Yuki"), and he frequently annoys Chaud, who keeps giving him head noogies, plus there's this one really funny part where they make fun of Chaud's haircut (you have to actually see it), volume 5 because it introduces Mr. Famous (another one of my favorite characters), and Volume 6 because there's this one part where Chaud AND ProtoMan both start giving Sean noogies.
Yes, people have griped about the manga, although not as much as they've griped about the anime.But that doesn't change the fact that it's really good.It's also fairly inexpensive, compared to various other manga, but it's worth every cent.
However, I'm not sure that I'd recommend it for especially young children, because it's kind of violent at times and they're also allowed to use mild swear words occasionally (but only the mildest of swear words, nothing terrible).

Like I said, this manga is really good, and the drawings are also nicely done (although at times, usually during the battle sequences, it's kind of hard to tell what's going on), so if you like manga and if you like MegaMan, go ahead and buy it.You won't be disappointed, in all likelihood. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars This book has been reprinted by OSR Press
In case this book becomes unavailable (which can happen, since it's rather old) you should know that there's a 2006 OSR Press reprint of it. It's the same book. For some reason there's no linkage on this site between these two printings, so I'm trying to fix that. The book is very valuable, despite its being very old: it's not up to date, but as far as it goes, most of it still applies -- and, uncommonly, it's very well written.

5-0 out of 5 stars essential for device drivers and other NT internals
This is an amazing book. It's not a tutorial for a building device driver. For device driver developers, it is an essential reference for understanding NT's kernel system. This book is also great for those who are not building device drivers but want to understand the NT kernel. The chapters on virtual memory, I/O architecture and I/O managers are totally worth the price of the book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Must have
If you are writing Windows Device Drivers, this is one of 3 books you absolutely must have. Buy it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Cool book, I found it very useful
I think its a good book and well organized, my only black poing is that I missed a toolkit section like WinDriver-www.jungo.com- or numega that enable easy and quick development.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
This book is VERY well written and VERY readable.I needed other sources to get an actual driver written (see Chris Cant's book) but only because this book gives a much more complete picture and I needed something morespecific.That's my point...if you want a good, solid understanding of thesystem and an excellent reference, get this book.It's not often one findstechnical-minded people with such writing skill. ...

Product Description
Windows NT/2000 Native API Reference is absolutely unique. Currently, documentation on WIndows NT's native APIs can only be found through access to the source code or occasionally Web sites where people have chosen to share bits of insight gained through reverse engineering. This book provides the first complete reference to the API functions native to Windows NT and covers the set of services that are offered by Windows NT to both kernel- and user-mode programs. Ideal for the intermediate and advanced level user- and kernel-mode developers of Windows systems, this books is devoted to the NT native API and consists of documentation of the 210 routines included in the API. Also included are all the functions added in Windows 2000.Amazon.com Review
Under the hood, how does Windows 2000 really work? Windows NT/2000 Native API Reference provides a thorough listing of all available internal or "native" API calls, many of them undocumented. For any advanced C/C++ programmer who writes Win32 device drivers or system utilities, this is an indispensable resource to some truly impossible-to-find information.

The book first explains what native APIs are and what they are good for. Native APIs (which all begin with the "Nt" or "Zw" prefixes) run closer to the operating system (in kernel mode), so they are perfect for those who write device drivers, debuggers, profilers, or other system utilities.

This book lists several hundred native APIs, the C structures they use, and the Win32 calls that invoke them. As a reference, this text is a model of clarity, with each function clearly documented and explained. APIs are grouped by functionality, from finding system information to processes and threads, memory management, file I/O, and other categories. One standout here is the sample code that polls the system for low-level information, which mimics developer utilities that let you view process and thread information. Other short examples include techniques for accessing debugging, profiling, and exception information.

For programmers who write device drivers, this title also includes the plug-and-play and power management APIs used by today's Windows. Interesting appendices include a guide to the way the Win32 NTFS file system organizes data on disks, along with sample code to access--and even decompress--this information.

Whether you want to write device drivers or system utilities, or you just want to learn more about the operating system, this comprehensive guide takes the lid off Windows 2000 and looks inside at its internal functions. --Richard Dragan

Topics covered: Native API overview, native API vs. Win32 API, system information and control, APIs for objects, object directories and symbolic links, virtual memory, sections for memory-mapped files, threads, processes, building ToolHelp utilities with native APIs, Windows 2000 API for jobs, tokens, working with synchronization objects, execution profiling, ports and local procedure calls (LPCs), debugging support with LPCs, opening, reading and writing files, NTFS disk structures, Registry keys, security and auditing, plug-and-play and power management, miscellaneous native APIs, exception and debugging. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Nice, but out of date
It is nice that the author documented this APIs long before MS got around to it, but now they are either documented or deprecated APIs (XP, Vista).Interesting to flip through, but I generally avoided using these APIs since I'd like to code once and not revisit my code when MS changes their undocumented APIs.

4-0 out of 5 stars Essential reference material
This book is essential material for someone interested in knowing how NT really works. I discovered it a few years ago, and it immediately freed me from having to peer through a kernel debugger, darkly, trying to figure out interfaces.

To my mind, the amount of information is right. I don't need tutorial information. I don't need a repeat of what is in, say, 'Inside Windows 2000'. This book is refreshing in that it tacitly assumes the existence of the intelligent reader.

Though this book does not focus on kernel programming, quite likely you're going to be a kernel weenie if you're even interested in the material.

I don't even find the book physically too small. It's a lot easier to read, physically, than those 'inside secrets of the gurus in 21 days' tombstones.

2-0 out of 5 stars Good Reference not much MEAT to it
Ok, usually I do not write reviews on books that I get, because I just don't care to. This time I have to. Not too long ago I received this book, and too my suprise it was TINY. I wasn't looking for a beginners book, but at the same time I was looking for a good reference book. Unfortunately, if you are looking for a complete reference, this isn't the book for you. Here is my break down on different categories,I feel are important to me.

Content Layout: 5 stars
Amount of Content: 1 star

Value for the Money I Spent: 1 Star
Readability: 3 Stars

If this book was priced at $20.00 then I would give it a rating of 4 stars, because then the content would be worth the money spent. At $50.00 dollars, this book is the biggest rip off. Alot of the W32 function calls are not even in this book. About 95% of them. I think they could have added a whole lot more into the book. Now unfortunately, I have the pleasure of having to find another API reference book, after I have already spent $50.00 on this one. If you are a programmer looking to perform special tasks with the api, don't waste your time with this one.

5-0 out of 5 stars Badly Needed Reference to the Dimly Illuminated World of NT
This book is the first and only reference of its type. It delves deep into the harsh and uncompromizing world of NT internals. No other book documents these APIs as clearly or acurately (Not even Microsoft's own documentation such as it is). This is suprizingly refreshing especially given that much of this information ISN'T DOCUMENTED AT ALL _ANYWHERE ELSE_!!! Thus even a mediocre reference would have been a welcome reprieve. However, there is nothing mediocre about this rendition.

It is important to note what this book is not. It is not a beginners reference to win32. It will not teach you the how and why of windows programming, and it is not a good starting point for learning about NT internals (However, it is essential once you have understood the basic material and want to do more).

For developers wanting to learn about basic windows programming I recommend "Win32 System Programming" by Johnson M. Hart (ISBN 0-201-70310-6). For those interested in the how and why of 2000 internals I suggest chapter eleven of "Modern Operating Systems" by Andrew S. Tanenbaum, 2nd ed. (ISBN 0-13-031358-0). Chapter 11, pp. 763-851, is a case study explaining how the concepts of OS theory as described in the rest of the chapters apply to Windows 2000.

5-0 out of 5 stars Really unique effort
This is not a regular text book about the Undocumented Windows NT. It does not tell anything about the system components or even how does the system works. I do not think this was by any means the target of the writer. It is clear to me that the writer spent lots of his time reverse engineering the NT native system APIs and in his book he is providing us with the outcomes of his work.
If you are looking for a book about NT internals then you need to look for some other books. However, if you are a system engineer who spends most of his time doing kernel debugging using SoftIce or Microsoft Kernel Debugger then this book is definitely for you. If you know how to break at each NT native API using SoftIce (or Microsoft KD) and dump the parameters passed to the function then this book is an invaluable help to you. Otherwise, this book is not for you.
Finally, this is the only available text book to the public that has published the prototype of most of NT native APIs. If you need to know those APIs then this book is for you. However, you need to consider the fact that maybe there are some mistakes so you need to verify each API prototype yourself. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Resource and Devotional!
This book has really made a big difference in my life. As someone who has grown up reading the Bible my entire life, sometimes I slip into the "ho-hum-this-is-boring" mentality. This book has pulled me out of that so many times.

I was given a copy of Faith Factor NT as a gift. A quick thumb-through proved quite impressive: this isn't your typical devotional book (ie - a cute fictional story with a spiritual message attached). Each devo actually focuses on a passage of the Bible, retelling it in an engaging style. If you're looking for a great survey of the New Testament of the Bible (whether you're new to the Bible or a seasoned-reader) -- this is a fabulous resource. I've used it for personal use and for teaching kids and adults.

It's too bad there's no "look inside" option. I'll see if I can flesh it out:

Faith Factor has 128 devotionals that go through each of the 27 books of the New Testament. The graphic design inside is very chic, modern, and professional done. Each devotional is 2-3 pages long, long enough to get good meat without consuming your time. At the beginning of each NT book (Matthew, Mark, Luke, etc) there is a page that talks about the history and purpose of the book, along with an outline of the main themes of that book.

Each devotional contains multiple sidebars that give:
-easy-to-understand definitions of unfamiliar words
-cultural examples (ex: Talking about tax collectors: "Tax collectors were considered traitors in the eyes of their own people. They worked for the Roman government and often charged higher taxes than required so they could secretly pocket money for themselves.")
-application tidbits
-connections to the Old Testament (including connecting to specific devos in the other book: "FAITH FACTOR: OT")

The format is easy to follow:
-Foundation (leads you in a time of prayer)
-Focus (the devo itself, which begins by asking a relevant question that ties into the devo: "Do you find it hard to do what you're supposed to do because you're distracted by what other people are or aren't doing?")
-Footwork (answering questions -- you actually use your Bible)
-Fruit (practical application and a challenge for my life)

As a history lover, I was stoked about finding running timeline that scrolls across the bottom of the entire book that connects historical and Biblical events together. There's some cool facts in there. :)

What I like best about this book is that the author really helps you LEARN about the Bible.

If you find your quiet times are getting stale - or that you're just ready for a fun, fresh, and EASY look at the New Testament - then this book is for you. I'm so thankful for how it has helped me! I highly recommend!!

Be SURE to check out the other book in the series: FAITH FACTOR: OT. :) Faith Factor Ot (Thru-the-Bible Devotions)

5-0 out of 5 stars Great New Testament Devotional...
Faith Factor NT really got me in the Word and helped me to really understand the big picture. Before each chapter the author gives "Faith facts" that gives a background on the author and what to look for in the particular book of the Bible.Each devotional starts out with Foundation, where the reader stops to pray and invite God into your study.Next is a Focus point... For example, on Mark 4, the focus point is "Have you ever had one of those days when nothing goes right for you and it seems nobody cares?Where is God when you really need Him, anyway?" The Footwork gets you into the Bible to answer a thought-provoking question.And finally the Fruit is applying what you learned to your life.

I get so overwhelmed when I try to read the Bible without a devotional or using a Bible Study.I am 30 years old and re-dedicated my life to Jesus at age 21.I have been doing Bible study's with Women's ministry at my church for 3 1/2 years. I have done three Beth Moore studies and a Nancy Leigh DeMoss study.This book has changed my life because it has helped me read the New Testament with a complete understanding of the author and the big picture.I didn't realize until I was half-way through the book that this was marketed for kids/juvenile/devotions.Please don't let that deter you from buying this book if you are an adult.

This book is a great guide for helping you read through the Bible without getting overwhelmed.

I had the pleasure of meeting Jackie Perseghetti at a Weekend to Remember Conference (which I highly recommend also). She is so lovely and wonderful.

3-0 out of 5 stars 3.5 Stars . . . Don't Let the Packaging Fool You
Marketed with the "Fear Factor" look, this devotional seemed like it would be a surefire hit with my two teen daughters. We used to watch the show, imagining what sorts of things we could endure if pressed to our limits, and we hoped for some clever spiritual correlations here. Or, if nothing else, for some modern factoids that would tie into biblical lessons.

"Faith Factor NT" is nicely laid out and packaged, but if fails to deliver on its premise. It has no connection to the show it glibly rips off, and it leans toward basic paraphrasing of sections of each book of the New Testament, doing so adequately enough, but in no way capturing the interest of my daughters. While we will continue to plug our way through sections of it, it does not have the appeal that I had hoped for my kids.

Is it solid biblical stuff? Indeed, in that department it deserves five stars. It employs a four-step learning method--foundation, focus, footwork, and fruit. It's well written. That said, there are a number of devotionals for teens and families, and I wish I had not raised my daughters' hopes and mine by buying into the "Fear Factor" concept of this particular one. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars the new greek interlinear new testament
This book has been a great help in my study of greek at home by myself.The print is clear, the underline translations are understandable and accurate.The free English translation along side helps get the general meaning and also find a passage quickly.

5-0 out of 5 stars Pairs nicely with any bible
A fantastic bible for those people who want a literal translation. Most interlinears are essentially reading assistants to the Greek. But Brown and Comfort managed to do the impossible create an interlinear that is accurate and yet reads as smoothly as a standard formal translation. Which means that you can actually read it verse by verse like you would a "normal bible" and thus have the most accurate formal translation of the NT bar none. The Greek and the NRSV are presented on the same page for those wanting more or less formal respectively. Even better this book is smallish, "pocket sized" so it can fit comfortably along with a bible right in a bible case for people who want to use a mainstream translation and "check the greek" in a portable format. In keeping with that goat, it covers textual variants in the Greek (generally from UBS commentery A Textual Commentary on the Greek New Testament) that lead to translation variants in the translations for the KJV, NKJV, RSV, NRSV, ESV, NASB, NIV, TNIV, NEB, REB, NJB, NAB, NLT, HCSB, and indicates where they offer the alternatives in the margin. In other words this formal pairs with any of the mainstream bibles quite well. This one is a gem, and it's cheap (like $12) a no brainer purchase.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Condition!
We were very happy with the condition of the Bible and the speed by which it arrived.

5-0 out of 5 stars Indespensible Edition for the Koine Student
After struggling with Plato, Sophocles, and Aristotle, Biblical Greek is a simple and profound joy. The forms are less complicated and more regular. The content remains profound. Reading the New Testament in Greek has never been more fun nor simpler than with the aid of this edition.

Translation: This edition has two: interlinear (parallel with the Greek) and the NRSV in the margins. Both are excellent. The interlinear translation helps identify obscure phrases and idioms and the NRSV is a wonderful aid to shaping one's translation. That said, the NRSV's only negative qualities are in its "gender-inclusive" language, rendering "brothers and sisters" for "adelphoi". This may bother some, inserting a meaning that is not literally present in the original, but otherwise the NRSV is impeccably accurate to the best of my knowledge.

Aesthetics: This is a big deal for a Greek NT. If the Greek font is ugly (take the revolting UBS font, for example) it can really kill the mood. But this Greek font is gorgeous and a pleasure to read. Likewise, all type, though small, is clear and easy on the eyes.

Durability: Exceptionally well-bound. The hardcover binding is sewn and withstands tremendous abuse. However, the pages are onionskin-thin, so turn them carefully.

Size: Ideal. Large enough to place on a desk and use as a translation exercise, small enough to plop in your lap and read for hours. 913 pages are condensed into an inch of volume, but it's never overwhelming. This is a perfectly sized volume for study or reading.

Price: Unmatchable. All combined factors above rate a price only a hair above fifteen dollars. If you wanted an interlinear New Testament, what on earth are you waiting for? Wait no longer! This is the best interlinear this amount of money can buy. Period.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very good book
I like the lay out of this book for the Greek.AND most important its small size makes it ideal to carry around with you.It is based on the most recent UBS 4th edition text.This is a must for Bible college students that are studing the Greek.

Product Description
This book is a licensed reprint of the original content from "Windows NT File System Internals", by Rajeev Nagar, originally published by O'Reilly & Associates in 1998. As recently announced in The NT Insider, OSR purchased the publishing rights to this industry-recognized book, and is pleased to be able to make this reprint available to the Windows file system development community, under the new, OSR Press publishing label.The high level table of contents for this book is as follows: Windows NT System Components, File System Driver Development, Structured Driver Development, The I/O Manager, The NT Virtual Memory Manager, The NT Cache Manager (I, II, III), Writing A File System Driver (I, II, III), andFilter Drivers. Again, please note that the original contents of this book (circa 1998) have not been updated for this reprint. However, given the core file system interface in Windows has not drastically changed (like other driver models in Windows), this book is still valuable to the Windows file system and filter driver development community. OSR Press does have plans for updates to the original contents of this book, likely to be published under a new title. Stay tuned! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Insight - still relevant!
This book is a recent reprint by OSR but I was lucky enough to have it in my librarysome seven years ago. There you have it, it is an old book, but is it still relevant today. I think it is. The underlying windows file system (NTFS) has not changed that much for the windows.

Be warned that if you are new to kernel development, this book is probably not for you. A better starting point for a beginner would be "Windows NT Device Driver Development (OSR Classic Reprints)". Reading the book did feel abrupt sometime and probably lacks a good flow. I also remember some of the theories / hypotheses put forward by the author has been challenged elsewhere( OSR file system forums). Nevertheless it is a good reference book. I highly recommend it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very unique but has to be read with other recent materials.
This book is by far, one of my most favorite books. It has been the only complete text book that explains the details of the Windows NT File Systems Framework. If you are to buy the book these days you would not feel the value of the book as I felt it when I started reading it six years ago. Nowadays, there are some other literatures that provides deeper coverage for certain topics like the OSR materials and the first IFS conference (both are available as part of the IFS kit). But still, the book remains the only complete reference. To get most of the benefits of this book, it is better that you look at the FASTFAT source code that comes with the IFS kit. The main drawback of the book is the lack of deep coverage for network based file system drivers. OSR materials provided with the IFS kit are essential to have better knowledge about File System FILTER drivers. Read the book while watching the videos of the first IFS kit conference, this will help a lot. Finally, if you are new to file system drivers then, be more patient while reading the book. You would not get everything from the first reading.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great info, but much repeating
This is certainy a must have for any Windows 32-bit file system developer. It reveals great secrets, make sense of the NT IFS chaos, and make Your IFS nightmares go away. It's a great book, but much of it is presented in mostothers, and that's the only bad thing )like memory managment, cachemamaneretc.). Thanks, RN.

Product Description
Developing Windows NT Device Drivers: A Programmer's Handbook offers programmers a comprehensive and in-depth guide to building device drivers for Windows NT. Written by two experienced driver developers, Edward N. Dekker and Joseph M. Newcomer, this book provides detailed coverage of techniques, tools, methods, and pitfalls to help make the often complex and byzantine "black art" of driver development straightforward and accessible. This book is designed for anyone involved in the development of Windows NT Device Drivers, particularly those working on drivers for nonstandard devices that Microsoft has not specifically supported. Because Windows NT does not permit an application program to directly manipulate hardware, a customized kernel mode device driver must be created for these nonstandard devices. And since experience has clearly shown that superficial knowledge can be hazardous when developing device drivers, the authors have taken care to explore each relevant topic in depth. This book's coverage focuses on drivers for polled, programmed I/O, interrupt-driven, and DMA devices.The authors discuss the components of a kernel mode device driver for Windows NT, including background on the two primary bus interfaces used in today's computers: the ISA and PCI buses.Developers will learn the mechanics of compilation and linking, how the drivers register themselves with the system, experience-based techniques for debugging, and how to build robust, portable, multithread- and multiprocessor-safe device drivers that work as intended and won't crash the system. The authors also show how to call the Windows NT kernel for the many services required to support a device driver and demonstrate some specialized techniques, such as mapping device memory or kernel memory into user space. Thus developers will not only learn the specific mechanics of high-quality device driver development for Windows NT, but will gain a deeper understanding of the foundations of device driver design.Amazon.com Review
Developing Windows NT Device Drivers is anauthoritative and clearly written resource on how to write devicedrivers for Windows NT. The book begins with an excellent high-leveloverview of how Windows NT device drivers work and how to createthem. The text concentrates on "generic" device drivers written in Cand excludes specialized drivers for graphics, file system, andnetwork hardware.

Eventually, the book turns to device registers,device memory, and different PC busses (such as PCI). A section on I/ORequest Packets (IRPs) and interrupt handling within Windows NT showshow to do asynchronous I/O. The authors offer a simple "Hello World"example for a device driver and present various debuggingtechniques.

Subsequent chapters deepen the reader's knowledge ontopics such as device I/O, synchronization (including spin locks),device-driver initialization and cleanup, and direct memory access(DMA). These chapters also instruct you on how to access hardwareports and interrupt processing (a crucial topic) and how to movedevice memory into system memory (along with a workingexample). Discussion of more specialized topics--ISA and PCI busses,serialization, driver threads, and the advantages of the new "layered"driver model--follows.

Authors Edward Dekker and Joseph M. Newcomeroffer plenty of excellent real-world advice. (Material on how to logdevice-driver events and manage the infamous Windows "Blue Screen ofDeath" is indispensable.) They present a "hardware simulator" thatlets readers develop device drivers without an actual hardwaredevice. The book closes with information on Windows 2000, universalserial bus (USB) devices, the Win32 driver model, and over 300 pagesof reference material, including device-driver kernelfunctions. Overall, this comprehensive text provides a solidintroduction to the way Windows NT device drivers interact withhardware; it gives you all you need to start building custom devicedrivers. --Richard Dragan ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Book is old, but still worth it
Lets face it, Microsoft could not sell a dieing man a glass of water. Reading the wdk docs is the most jumbled pile of words aimed at nice short web pages than getting ideas across. This book was written in the NT 4 era and looks on Win2k as the future, but Windows driver writing is complex enough and has not changed in its base ideas so that with this book, along with the wdk you can write a driver! Others have noted that the book skips over exciting things like writing a file system, but nobody is going to ask you to write a file system but a nice filter driver is still a possibility. It gives the basic view of drivers and the relationship of the objects needed to build one. You will have to read the book, then use the knowledge to unravel the wdk to get the changes and extra commands since added to drivers for valid up to date work, but the data presented is well written and builds you knowledge in layers. Couple this book with "Advanced Windows Debugging" and you could build a career, if the clowns had not shipped the jobs overseas. The trick with drivers is learning the layout without falling asleep, this book does a much better job than most, but as usual, you will probably need all the books you can get to actually write a comercial quality driver, even on a simple level and driver writing still pays fantastic, so get on with it!

3-0 out of 5 stars The cure for insomnia
This book gives near complete coverage of developing Windows NT drivers and towards the end of the book covers Windows 2000 driver development. A beginning driver developer, I found this book somewhat hard to follow, as it reads very much like a product manual. It does however relay alot of valuable information. I found this book The Windows 2000 Device Driver Book: A Guide for Programmers (2nd Edition) to be much easier to follow.

3-0 out of 5 stars Developing Windows NT Device Drivers
No good for windows 2000 or XP, otherwise very good and informative. Code available from authors sites, but buggy (on XP anyway). Shame it's out of date, if a legacy driver will do you then this book is very good.

5-0 out of 5 stars My Savior
I'm a high school intern and I knew nothing about drivers (other than installing them) 3 months ago.Now I have completed 2, an ISA and Parallel port driver.This book is really great for people new to the DDK and need a good foundation.The examples are clear, and the pace of the book is pretty slow (but steady).Once you get past the first 9-10 chapters you can pretty much skim for parts you need.The tips are especially helpful, as to why C++ OOP isn't suitable, to why 2 computers are absolutely necessary.Even if you plan on making WDM drivers, this book will be helpful.Oney's WDM book is really useless for beginners, and the DDK almost has no redeeming value, other than being very very heavy (oh, wait thats not good either).The net is surprisingly lacking of driver programming pages.

Product Description
The eagerly awaited second edition of this well-known volume.INSIDE WINDOWS NT has long provided the best architectural overview of Microsoft Windows NT-and that's made it an important road map for Windows NT developers and for students of operating systems. Now this new edition is fully revised, updated, and expanded. The material on the Windows NT file system (NTFS) that was a separate monograph has been folded into the new edition, as has an entire chapter on the cache manager.This edition includes more detailed descriptions of code flows, data structures, and other elements.It also includes hands-on experiments that describe how you can watch the internal behaviour of Windows NT by using various tools that come with the product. Readers will discover a detailed under-the-hood investigation of the Windows NT 4.0internals and the associated coding implications. This edition includes prerelease information about Windows NT 5.0.Amazon.com Review
Beginning with broad NT concepts and then focusingsequentially on various key systems, Solomon dissects NT with asurgeon's care and a software engineer's thoroughness. That's not tosay that this book is mainly about writing programs. Rather, this isthe kind of guide that power users wish for, explaining why and howthings happen and glossing over very little. Programmers will valuethe clear NT API hints.

Initially, the author talks aboutimportant NT tools (such as Performance Monitor) and concepts (such asthe idea of virtual memory and how it's mapped). He illustrates allabstract concepts with excellent conceptual drawings that make iteasier to comprehend what NT is doing. A chapter on NT's architectureexplains how the system works as a whole. Later chapters focus onindividual subsystems, providing extensive coverage of processes,memory, input/output, security, caches, and NT. After reading thechapter on memory management, for instance, you'll have a solid graspof paging and the internal settings that affect it. The book alsocontains experiments that guide the reader throughconcept-illustrating procedures. For example, readers crash theirmachines to see and analyze the dump log--a valuable skill. --DavidWall ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Easy read for kernel coders and managers alike
Inside Windows NT provides an extensive overview of Windows NT, and a high level peak at the internals. Packed with conceptual drawings, this book delves into NT tools and the core system itself.

Written at a time when information about Windows NT internals were hidden or not very well documented (even for those of us who wrote device drivers), this book provided valuable insights.

A valuable and interesting read for professional who must write code for NT or just want to know what goes on under the hood.

4-0 out of 5 stars Easy solid access to many NT core services
This book is absolutely great in its first half. So get an overview, learn about processes and memory management. Don't try on the more advanced topics though. Yes I do recommend this book, there is no good alternativeto this important subject.

Another aspect are the practical excercises.They basically boil down to reading a number in some tool. This numbercorresponds to the just read text. For me this wasn't helpful.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Technically and Pedagogically
A lot of OS internal type of books talk and talk, even though most of them are indeed technically superb. But Inside Windows NT is special in that the author knows humans have to practice to learn. After you read a few pages,you come to an Experiment section and see what comes on screen if you dothis and that. For non-systems programmer like me, this may be the onlybook to satisfy my curiosity to know more about Windows NT.

5-0 out of 5 stars Terrific!
This book is an absolute must-have, whether you're a programmer or an NT administrator (although the former will get more out of it). The only gripe I have with the book is that the chapter on security is really weak (about 1/3 the length of every other chapter)--if you're looking for a detailedprogrammatic discussion of NT security, pick up Kevin Miller's "NTServices" (Wrox Press). This book isn't about security per se, but itschapter on security is terrific. Sorry for the digression, Inside WinNT isscreaming to sit on your shelf now!

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book about how Windows NT works inside
This is one of the books where I have to force myself to stop reading as one interesting a paragraph follows the next. The first few chapters give a general overview of the basic subsystems and how they work together. Theinformation described in these chapters are taken as a basis for thefollowing chapters that each discuss one subsystem.

For a generaloverview of how a subsystem works the first few pages of a chapter give youthe general idea. If you want to know more the chapters will then godeeper.

The book will NOT tell you how to program NT but ratherintroduce you to the concepts that are working 'under the hood'.

Shortcommings: Sometimes terms are used at the beginning of a chapterthat are defined somewhere in the middle of a chapter or in another chapterfurther into the book. Also the network subsystem is not described at all. ... Read more

Product Description
Windows NT Shell Scripting is a comprehensive reference for network professionals. It is the only book available on the practical use of the Windows NT shell scripting language.The book begins with a high-level introduction to the shell language itself, then describes the shell commands that are useful for controlling or managing different components of a network, i.e. file management, etc.The second part of the book is a comprehensive reference of all the commands, organized by function, for easy reference by the reader.Amazon.com Review
The command line isn't dead--far from it. Administrators ofbig Windows NT networks know that the best way to accomplish adifficult task frequently involves using the console interface ratherthan the graphical user interface. By writing batch routines, it'srelatively easy to perform fancy tasks on local computers and distantones. In Windows NT Shell Scripting, Tim Hill has done aservice by explaining how to write and use scripts under WindowsNT.

He begins at the beginning, explaining what scripting is andhow command lines come to exist under Windows NT. The reader gets fullinformation on virtual DOS machines and how programs started byscripts are instantiated. There's also some useful information onredirecting script output--handy when using batch files to create HTMLdocuments, for example.

If you think the way batch files handlesubroutines, variables, and pretty much everything else involves someweird syntax, you're right. Hill decrypts it all, explaining themechanics of the Windows NT batch-scripting language veryclearly. After he explains how to script academically, he providessome examples. There's a script that automates the creation of useraccounts, another script that monitors print activity, another thatkeeps an eye on disk usage, and one that does backups. A few morescripts round out the selection. Many of the scripts refer to alibrary of functions that's also listed and explained. Unfortunately,there's no companion disk, so readers have to get the samples from theMacmillan Web site.

It would be nice if this book contained somecoverage of the new Windows Scripting Host, which you can use to writescripts in VBScript, JavaScript, and (in the future) other languageslike Perl and Python. But that's cutting-edge stuff that hasn't yetbeen fully figured out, and what this book contains is great. Allharried sysadmins, particularly those who came on line after the ageof DOS had begun to wane, will be grateful for the guidance Hillprovides. --David Wall ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The definitive guide
An awesome book.If you want to write shell scripts, this is the book you should have.Provides a thorough explanation of how to code in this archaic environment.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Informative
I have a friend that recommended me this book and I have to agree with him that this was a very well written book. Don't let the fact that the title says "Windows NT" discourage you from getting this book. There is a lot of useful information in this book that is still standard practice for scripting in Server 2003. Probably one of the few and only outdated commands in the book is the AT command that was replaced by SCHTASK. Even then, the author goes into detail on how these different commands work and how to use them in your work environment to you benefit. I recommend this book as a learning tool and as a reference for my fellow scripting brethren.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best overview of the Windows Command Shell available
Although this book was authored in 1998, it is still as relavent today with Windows Server 2003 as it was when Windows NT 4.0 was first released.The fact is that the Command Shell hasn't changed all that much over the years and Timothy Hill's book remains the best guide to using and writing command scripts that I could ever recommend.And with Windows Server 2003's push to be able to do everything from the command line that one can do from the GUI, it's even more important to fully understand how the Windows Command Shell works.

Windows NT Shell Scripting is less about Windows NT than it is about how to write shell scripts.It covers the details of using the Command Shell in interactive mode, its configuration and how the 32-bit Command Shell differs from the 16-bit DOS box.Then it delves into the structure and syntax of the Command Shell language, providing a clear understanding of how the program control features such as IF and FOR work.Finally, it shows you how to create sophisticated shell scripts using the internal commands and external command-line utilities included with Windows and their Resource Kits.

Not everything in this book has survived the test of time.The old task scheduler using the AT command, though still supported in current version of Windows, has been mostly replaced by more powerful Scheduled Tasks of Windows 2000 and later.And you will want to supplement this book with a modern reference of the utility programs available for Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 (such as OReilly's "Windows Server 2003 In A Nutshell").Yet this represents only a small part of the book and majority of material stands up very well.Certainly there is no better and more in-depth tutorial for building command scripts than Timothy Hill's book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
Great book on NT shell commands that Microsoft doesn't even document.Not even "command /?" gives you any help.

Great for reference and to learn.

5-0 out of 5 stars It doesn't get better than this. Now we need a 2nd edition.
If you have a bit of programming experience, this book together with access to the NT Resource Kit tools will provide you with the foundation for doing almost anything you could imagine within Windows NT Shell Scripting.

The book can be used both as a tutorial and a reference for Windows NT scripting and gives good examples of the commands, tools and concepts covered. For Windows NT, this book does the job as your Shell Scripting Bible in less than 400 pages.

Since Windows NT 4.0, a lot has happened in the Windows scripting field though. With the release of Windows 2000 and the subsequent Windows XP and .NET Server, shell scripting has become much more powerful. A second edition of this book covering the new commands and tools would be most welcome. Until one exists, you might also want to look at newer books covering shell scripting for operating systems based on the Windows NT kernel.

You might also want to look at other, often more powerful ways to script your Windows NT-based environment. For that matter I recommend looking at other books covering WSH (Windows Script Host), ADSI and WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation). ... Read more

Product Description
Windows NT TCP/IP Network Administration is a complete guide to setting upand running a TCP/IP network on Windows NT. Windows NT and TCP/IP have longhad a close association, and this is the first book to focus exclusively on NT networking with TCP/IP. It starts with the fundamentals--what theprotocols do and how they work, how addresses and routing move data throughthe network, and how to set up your network connection. Beyond that, allthe important networking services provided as part of Windows NT-- including IIS, RRAS, DNS, WINS, and DHCP--are presented in detail.This book is the NT administrator's indispensable guide.Amazon.com Review
The world runs on IP addresses and the transmission of databetween them, and Windows NT controls an increasing number of TCP/IPnetworks. Windows NT TCP/IP Network Administration helpsdemystify the aspects of Windows NT that relate to TCP/IP.

CraigHunt wrote the standard book on TCP/IP under Unix--TCP/IP NetworkAdministration--and he and Robert Thompson have applied theirskills with equal aplomb to Windows NT 4. The authors don't assume toomuch here--they explain how IP addressing and TCP sessions work ingeneral before diving into the specifics of TCP/IP under WindowsNT. Readers learn the essentials of packets, addresses, routing, nameresolution, subnets, and sockets before Hunt and Thompson trundle outa single Windows NT screen shot.

Windows NT coverage iscomprehensive and authoritative. Beginning with a walkthrough ofTCP/IP installation under the operating system, Windows NT TCP/IPNetwork Administration proceeds to reveal the details of allservices that relate to TCP/IP. The book includes coverage of DynamicHost Configuration Protocol (DHCP), Windows Internet Name Service(WINS), Domain Name Service (DNS), Routing and Remote Access Service(RRAS), and Internet Information Server (IIS). Discussion of eachservice includes documentation of its interface, explanations of howto carry out common tasks, and some suggestions ontroubleshooting. Even experienced administrators will be able to learnsomething from the tons of tips found here. --David Wall ... Read more

Parece que si, pues aunque el libro cubre la mayor parte de los temas relacionados a configuracion de servidores DHCP, WINS y DNS utilizando NT considero que el libro es pobre en ejemplos ilustrativos, graficos de flujo, consejos y trucos.
Honestamente no recomiendo el libro si es que tienes un serio proyecto en mente para crear un nodo internet y deseas desarrollar toda la infraestructura de soporte TCP/IP.
Este es un libro frio, una clase magistral distante de hace unos 50 años atras sobre un tema tan moderno como TCP/IP, que mantiene al lector muy lejos del autor.

2-0 out of 5 stars Voice Only Edition HAS MUSIC!
Beware! If you're looking for a voice-only edition of the New Living Translation, expecting no background music, this is not that product.

I love the NLT (if I didn't, this product would only get 1 star), and I bought discs of the first edition some years back to listen to while working out. That edition had background music that would start playing at random places, which I found incredibly distracting. So when the NLT 2nd edition was released, I looked for an audio edition that left out the music.

I thought "Voice-Only Edition" meant no music. I was wrong. Once again, cheap synthesizer background music starts playing in random places. I just got off the phone with Tyndale House Publishing, and the representative said, "It's only for a few seconds at the beginning of a book." Well, listening to the first 7 chapters of 1 Corinthians this morning, random music played 3 different times. But no matter how often--or not--music plays, that's still misleading to call it "Voice-Only Edition." And Tyndale House won't take responsibility, so I'm stuck with a product I can't use.

Obviously, most people are not bothered by the music. But I'm a musician, and my attention always gravitates toward music. All I want is to hear the Word, simply spoken. Unfortunately, EVERY audio NLT product by Tyndale House Publishing has music on it.

If you want a newer translation with no music, get The Message Bible: Complete Bible.

5-0 out of 5 stars Have listened through the Bible multiple times!
Great for commutes, vacation travel, or relaxing at home.Clear voice reading the scripture.I love the New Living Translation.I have it in print and in audio too!

5-0 out of 5 stars I love it
I was looking for the complete bible on cd. This is just what I was looking for since it includes psalms & proverbs. I previously had the bible on dvd but did not include psalms & proverbs & I also did not care for the voice narration but this one is really nice & also it also has some music in the background that plays every once in awhile. I guess the Lord knew I would love this. And this was an excellent price through amazon.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome way to take God's Word in!
I drive 170 kilometers each way twice a week to take theology classes
so to be able to listen to God's word in this very well produced format
is a blessing!I have so much other reading to do and now I can do it
with so much more freedom with the WORD preparing my heart on the road!

4-0 out of 5 stars Very Good, but not great.
I was very excited to purchase this CD set because I love the NLT translation and I retain information better by hearing it. I would highly recommend this to anyone who has a commute and enjoys an easy translation to listen to.

The issue I had with the set is that there is no track list for each CD. There are about 20-22 tracks on each CD, and 64 CD's. It would be nice to know what verses are covered in each track. I have contacted the publisher, Tyndale, to see if a track list is avaliable, but they have not yet responded.

Other than that, I highly recommend this to anyone. ... Read more

Product Description

For many years now John Clabeaux has been perfecting his technique for teaching New Testament Greek—using his classrooms at St. John’s Seminary College, Harvard Divinity School, and the Pontifical College Josephinum as language laboratories. The comprehensive, meticulous, and user-friendly text NT Greek: A Systems Approach is the fruit of these efforts.

            NT Greek is designed to be used both as a classroom text and as a reference manual for those students pursuing degrees in theological and biblical studies. The text includes a Greek index, an English index, a Greek-to-English glossary, verb maps, noun and adjective declension charts, and a list of helpful hints and rules. A digitally mastered CD of Greek recitations comes with every book to assist students with their pronunciations.

I own a 2002 rough-draft edition of this book, as Dr. John Clabeaux was a professor of mine at St. John's Seminary in Boston.

I am certain that Dr. Clabeaux has perfected what was already a great manual for New Testament Greek. Dr. Clabeaux ingeniously intuits that language learning is about mental association. As such, he has his students learn the patterns present in Koine Greek so that one can more quickly and more surely learn the grammar needed to study the New Testament. Plus, drawing upon the common experience of his students, he presents recitations of commonly known passages of the New Testament and even the Septuagint Old Testament, as well as standard Christian prayers to help the student learn Greek (and think of it as a living language) by means of something already familiar and already lived, namely prayer. While systematically presenting the nuts and bolts of grammar, Dr. Clabeaux remembers that the downside of grammars is that they can be boring and overly technical, speaking in terms above the level of the student. In contrast to this, Dr. Clabeaux writes in a conversational, down to earth style, adding humor and interesting facts, so that any student on any level can understand and truly learn the complexity of New Testament Greek while still enjoying one's self.

I had three semesters of Greek with Dr. Clabeaux. After one and a half semesters we had already finished the grammar and began translating the Gospel of Mark. To this day, despite the fact that it has been seven years, I can still look at a passage of the New Testament in Greek and understand it. I attribute the speed of learning and the memory retention to Dr. Clabeaux's systems approach. In fact, I compare all my other language classes to the way in which Dr. Clabeaux teaches. I recommend this book to every NT Greek student I meet who is having difficulty learning NT Greek, often lending my copy out (but always under the strict condition that I get it back).

That the book now comes with a CD of the recitations makes me jealous. Be sure I will be saving up what little money I have to buy a new copy of this book with all the added features.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book
Not sure why its out of print. It's an excellent in-depth look at NTFS for us Administrators and Users. Just the right size and well written.

Looks like Helen's other book is huge and probably too much for me.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good technical summary of NTFS
This book is a good technical summary of Microsofts NTFS, but it lacks the technical depth necessary to really document NTFS. If you want to know how how NTFS works, this book is for you. If you want the detail necessary to write an implementation of NTFS, sorry, you're out of luck ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent training resource...
This book did an excellent job of preparingme for the MCSE Windows NT 4.0 Workstation exam.This book was my sole resource and I passed the exam easily.

4-0 out of 5 stars Straight to the point
This book would be great for people just starting with Windows NT. Its straight to the point, so its easy to understand!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book for beginners!
This book is an excellent start for people who are new to Windows NT.If you consider yourself a subject-matter expert in Windows 95/98, then this book is not for you.(You're no dummy!)I am using this book as aprerequisite for a computer programming course.It explains manycomplicated 'Microsoftisms' in plain English.Read and re-read this book,then add the line "Proficient in Windows NT 4" on to your resume!

1-0 out of 5 stars DISAPPOINTING
If you have a basic knowledge of Windows and are considering Windows NT, Windows NT 4 will most likely NOT be much help. A few years back the 'Dummies' books were really quite good, I can not say this about Windows NT4. I have purchased several 'Dummies' books and up to this one I can saythey were worth the money ... save your money, there are much better books. ... Read more

Product Description
Although Microsoft Windows NT is one of the most popular operating systems in the corporate world, no book has documented what actually goes on under the hood -- until now. Undocumented Windows NT dissects the Win32 interface, deconstructs the underlying APIs, and deciphers the Memory Management architecture to help you understand operations, fix flaws, and enhance performance.

In this groundbreaking guide, three experts share what they've dug up on NT through years of hands-on research and programming experience. The authors' in-depth investigation uncovers both the strengths and the weaknesses -- and reveals how you can make any Windows NT system more stable and secure. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars You will view Windows differently after this book
I have loved this book. It is much more easier to read than the more detailed book Windows Internals but still give you a good overall understanding on how Windows works. After having read this book, the cryptic access violation error messages suddenly made more sense. The most enlightning chapters of the book are the ones discussing how the OS manages the process memory space and how a process is launched. Do not get fooled thinking that because the book is on NT that its information is outdated. Not much has changed since and its content is still accuratly accurate.

5-0 out of 5 stars Finally...
It took a long time until someone dared to write an "undocumented" book about Windows NT. For strange reasons, the most renowned authors of "undocumented" books totally ignored NT for a long time and mainly focused on Windows 9x. The author trio from Pune, India, finally filled this gap. Besides the chapters about Interrupt and Native API hooking, the most interesting part of this book is certainly chapter 8, which covers the LPC (Local Procedure Call) facility (i.e. NT's basic interprocess communication mechanism) in great depth. I'm not aware of a more comprehensive documentation of this topic. All three editions of "Inside Windows NT/2000" just lay out the basic facts, but Dabak et al. show how to put LPC to work with several code samples. Highly recommeded!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great source of Windows NT extensibility mechanisms
The book is the first one that I've encountered that explains, with good working examples, how to fundamentally extend Windows NT functionality through new system services, software interrupts, and ring 0 code.

Italso provides good explanations of the virtual memory and LPC facilities,with very helpful specific code examples.

The book does have a version1.0 flavor to it.The editing and publishing are mediocre and there aremany other areas of NT that I would love to see the authors apply theirimpressive investigative skills to.

If you are interested inunderstanding as much about the internals of NT as anyone that doesn't haveaccess to the NT source code can, this book is well worth examining.

4-0 out of 5 stars Corrections to my review dated 16 March 2000
A week ago, I posted a review of _Undocumented Wndows NT_, a review that contains one factual error and one fallacious assumption which caused me to view the work in a worse light than I would otherwise have done.

Theerror is in attributing the reverse-engineering of the KiSystemServiceTablemechanism to Nishad Herath.Nishad has done an excellent, and by allappearances independent, job, but I was now given proof that the authorsgot there first.Kudos goes to Dabak/Phadke/Borate, and I retract theimplied statement that they are offering information they could have foundon dejanews -- such information was not available when they wrote thechapter in question.

The flawed assumption of mine was that the blurb onthe cover, by which I judged _Undocumented Windows NT_, was written by theauthors:it was not.The authors' summary can be found higher up on thispage, and it does more accurately reflect the contents of the book.Themismatch between the expectations raised by the blurb and the actualcontents caused me to give a lower rating than I would otherwise havegiven; I hope to correct the average by submitting this review with acorrected, higher, rating.

Finally, I would like to point out a minor,but helpful detail:While the authors do not offer as much information onNT's native API as Gary Nebbett's _Windows NT/2000 Native API Reference_,which I mentioned in my earlier review, it must be pointed out that theyprovide a header file with the necessary function and structuredeclarations, something that is missing from the Nebbett book.


2-0 out of 5 stars A topic with potential -- unrealised potential, that is.
Part I: Essentials

When I opened _Undocumented Windows NT_, I expected it to start where Solomon's _Inside Windows NT 2nd ed._ left off. Unfortunately, the first half is only a rehash of readily availableinformation, sprinkled with a few beginner-level tips and techniques forbudding reverse-engineering fans.

Part II: Undocumented Windows NT

PartII presents the system service dispatch mechanism (operative term:KiSystemServiceTable), which is anything but a secret, at least sinceNishad Herath published his article on just that topic in October 1998(archived at http://www.cmkrnl.com/arc-newint2e.html -- sorry, amazon.comstrips HTML tags).Personally, I found the article easier to read andabsorb, too.

Putting LPCs to work is a good chapter.Nebbett's _NativeAPI Reference_ is, after all, just that, a reference, while the authors of_Undocumented Windows NT_ do a decent job of explaining how to use LPC. Hooking existing and adding new software interrupts is a holdover from thebad old DOS days, and about as useful. Besides, the authors make the samemistake that already marred my enjoyment of the first part of the book --they have enough background material on CPU architecture to bore thedeveloper who has read the Intel manuals (which we all did, I hope), butnot enough to enlighten the programmer who has skipped the processormanuals.

Part III: Appendices

The rest of the book can safely beignored: the contents of the thirty pages filled with a description of thePE format is available (for free) on the MSDN web site, and in an updatedversion, too, and the appendix claiming to offer details on NT's systemservices cannot stand up to Nebbett's work, which dedicates a whole 500pages to just that one topic.


The book does hold promise,judging from the table of contents; but now it is time for the authors tohunker down, and get some spelunking done for the second edition, which,one hopes, will be forthcoming.Once the book has doubled in page countfor the same covered material, I'll take another look at it. ...
