4-0 out of 5 stars ESV Bible for Kindle 6" Display
This is a very good ESV Bible for the Kindle. The only thing I did not like was the various book names are not at the top of each page just like in the bible. Sometimes I like to look at the top of the paper bible pages to remind myself which book I'm reading 1 Kings or 2 Chronicles and so on and you can't do that with this bible. However the text is great and not so difficult to navigate if you just use the menu and go to the table of contents. Although getting to a specific book and chapter in this bible is a little difficult and not that fast but you can do it if you just take a minute to navigate correctly. It is a bummer that the pages don't look 100% just like the real version but it is very readable and without the columns its actually a little bit better. For the price you can't beat it and with the increased font sizes of the Kindle it's so much easier to read.

5-0 out of 5 stars nice
I got the bible free when I pruchase my kindle. I like to use the text to speech function of the kindle so I can hear a little bit of the bible after a tough day at work

3-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing navigation on Kindle
It depends on your goals for having a Bible on your Kindle2 as to whether you'll get the most value from this version.If you like the English Standard Version and just want to read it, you'll be satisfied.You can navigate to a particular book from the Table of Contents and then to its chapters easily.If, however, you want to navigate directly to a verse or are looking for a specific phrase, it's a challenge.Say you want to go directly to John 3:16 and type that into the search box.Doesn't work.Say you want to find a particular phrase; doesn't work either as it will deliver results for each word and if, for example, one of the words is God, you're going to get a zillion results making sorting through them all a lengthy process.I even tried searching for a particular phrase knowing which book it is in and starting the search when I was at that book's location, but the search mechanism scans the whole Bible anyway, so that didn't help.

One of my desires for having the book on Kindle2 was to be able to search for a phrase that I remembered, but didn't remember the location or the context, and I'm disappointed that that doesn't work as I'd hoped.I wonder if there is a version that is indexed in that manner or if I'm just expecting too much of this technology.

4-0 out of 5 stars Bible to Go
It is terrific to have the English Standard Version of the Bible on my Kindle.

If I want to look up a particular book or chapter, it is easy to do.

Once there however, you are unable to tell what book you are reading from.The book of the Bible does not appear on the pages until you go all the way back to the first chapter and verse of that book.So if I turn my Kindle off and then turn it back on and go to where I left off in the Bible, I have no quick way of knowing what book I am reading from.

I love being able to read through a book of the Bible and have the gauge at the bottom tell me what % I've read.

It is easy to always have a Bible handy when you have it on the Kindle.You can take it traveling and not have to lug a heavy Bible which these days makes a lot of sense when we are charged by the pound for our luggage when flying. ... Read more

This edition of the NASB is the original 1977 version preceding the 1995 update. The NASB has been widely embraced and trusted as a literal word-for-word translation. Instead of telling the reader what to think, the NASB provides a precise translation with which to conduct a personal journey through the Word of God. The updated NASB is also available for the Amazon Kindle. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars No abbreviations
Based on the other reviews here at Amazon, this is the easiest to navigate in Kindle. It's still difficult for me though. My biggest problem is that I have to spell out each book every time I need to search. Unlike other versions, you can't use abbreviations here. That's quite easy if you're looking for Mark 2 but when you need to jump to Deuteronomy or Zephaniah or Thessalonians or any other longer and not-so-common names, your search could turn in zero results if you don't spell correctly. If you're like me, you're probably used to writing abbreviations so this would take longer to get used to.

Also because of the limitation of the Kindle keypad, it's quite difficult to navigate around books and verses. I just wish they put links somewhere that would enable readers to jump by chapters and by books, like what they did at [...].

3-0 out of 5 stars Good For Reading, Mediocre for reference.
While it is nice to have a Bible on the Kindle, it is best used for basic reading. It is a great asset to those who are looking to read through the entire Bible or even just through certain books. However, looking up individual verse references can be a bit more of a chore.

Through the table of contents you can get to the individual chapters, but because of the number of books and chapters in the Bible it is still a bit tedious going through the multiple pages. You can also search for say "Colossians 3" and generally get decent results. Further issues come when searching for a chapter of John since results get mixed with 1 John and such.

So, overall, I believe this is more of an issue with the Kindle's limitations that have not made searching Bible references more effective. But, in Amazon's defense that would be adding features aimed at basically one Book(multpile translations). I would not consider this as a real substitute for a printed Bible, but since I rarely am without my Kindle, this does give me a lot more opportunity to read the Word of God.

It's a good idea to read a chapter or portion a lot of fun along the way."

4-0 out of 5 stars Love the Bible, but this format needs a little improvement
This Bible is nice in many ways, you can find a passage by just entering "Mathew 5" and in two setps you can go there. The find feature is nice too, but I wish the find results came back with chapter and verse references rather than location references.Location 30062 means nothing to me. Still, this is very easy to carry around and it is nice to use for reading!

Product Description

Discover the secrets of world-class leadership!

When it comes to refined service and exquisite hospitality, one name stands high above the rest: The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company. With ceaseless attention to every luxurious detail, the company has set the bar for creating memorable customer experiences in world-class settings. Now, for the first time, the leadership secrets behind the company's extraordinary success are revealed.

The New Gold Standard takes you on an exclusive tour behind the scenes of The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company. Granted unprecedented access to the company's executives, staff, and its award-winning Leadership Center training facilities, bestselling author Joseph Michelli explored every level of leadership within the organization. He emerged with the key principles leaders at any company can use to provide a customer experience unlike any other, such as:

  • Understanding the ever-evolving needs of customers
  • Empowering employees by treating them with the utmost respect
  • Anticipating customers' unexpressed needs and concerns
  • Developing and conducting an unsurpassed training regimen

Sharing engaging stories from the company's employees--from the corporate office and hotels around the globe--Michelli describes the innovative methods the company uses to create peerless guest experiences and explains how it constantly hones and improves them.

The New Gold Standard weaves practical how-to advice, proven leadership tools, and the wisdom of experts to help you create and embed superior customer-service principles, processes, and practices in your own organization. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A great, if somewhat older book; recommended along with a newer "ritz management" book
"New Gold Standard" is a super, if slightly older, book on a really important subject:The Ritz-Carlton is one of the organizations whose methodology has truly transformed our understanding of what customer service quality and consistency can be.

I recommend "The New Gold Standard, especially if you're in the hotel business; Michelli, who also wrote The Starbucks Experience, is a consultant who did a great job writing it.I don't agree with the catty comments on this page that its writing style is sleep-inducing, etc. -- I guess they're complaining because it's written in an academic style and is maybe overly deferential to the owners of the Ritz (hey, it is an "official" history). Nonetheless, in my opinion it is still full of many well organized details and a helpful book for anyone in hospitality.Some of the strong points in particular are the historical overview and the interviews Michelli includes.

(One note to be aware of: There's now also a newer book on practical applications of Ritz-Carlton customer service and management techniques that's just come out this May; I really enjoyed it a lot. I got a lot out of this newer book ("Exceptional Service, Exceptional Profit"); it's by the founder of the Ritz Carlton Leadership Center along with Horst Schulze, the Founding President of The Ritz. They collaborate with an entrepreneur/systems expert from *outside* of the hospitality industry; this allows them to cover management issues in a lot of depth and in fields that are often far removed from just hotel-industry topics.Here's the link:Exceptional Service, Exceptional Profit: The Secrets of Building a Five-Star Customer Service Organization.

4-0 out of 5 stars IBM Competitive Edge Book Club Selects Book in Q3 2008
The IBM Competitive Edge Book Club is open to all Sales professionals at IBM."The New Gold Standard" was our Q3 2008 book club selection. Overall feedback from the members was good. In the feedback from the members, we ask them the question - "What will you do differently in your job since your study of this book?" Some of the replies directly from the members included:

- "I will try to apply the concepts around exceptional customer service. Delivering 'wow' means extending our thought process beyond delivering just what is the basics and looking to over-deliver to our clients every day."

- "Focus on instilling and maintaining a service culture within my organization"

- "IBM has its own "ladies and gentlemen" - particularly pertaining to "dedicated to our client's success". What we can do better is help each other reinforce this with our local teams on a daily basis."

- "The book has given me good ideas for how to take customer service to the next level in our business. Some of the concepts and ideas in the book will help me when dealing with, or, selling to customers."

- "I think the book applies itself very well to anyone that deals with customers."

Thank you to Dr. Joseph Michelli for being apart of the IBM Competitive Edge Book Club experience and for writing a book that is interesting to read.The book drives home the importance of providing great customer service while balancing and recognizing those internally that create that experience for your clients/ customers.

Best Regards,
Brien Convery
IBM Global Workforce Partner and Competitive Edge Book Club Leader

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Content but Poor Delivery on the Kindle
I know nothing about the Ritz-Carlton before I read this book, now I know everything - from company history, mission, values to staff training and engagement in corporate social responsibility.

This is also a good read for those interested in such topics as leadership and management. It offers 5 leadership principles which can be directly applied in your own company, especially the chapters about how Ritz-Carlton select, train and engage their staff members, who are closest and most critical in producing happy customers.

The reason why I strip 1 star off is that when the book is read on Kindle, some portions of a few pages (around 8 pages) were cut due to technical/ editing problem. It's just downright frustrating to see this happen. I would therefore recommend you buy the printed version if you really want to sqeeze every juice of it.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must read for anyone in business
Weather you have great principles and practices already implemented or you're looking for ways to improve your business this is a great book to learn from.It doesn't matter if you're in the hospitality business or not.Ask yourself, why are we doing things this way and is there any other way to do it?This book inspires you to look at things differently.Yes, you have policies buy they should be guidelines and up for review anytime someone runs into one.If you're not improving then you business and you will be left behind.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Read!
This is probably the best book I've read on Customer Service.The New Gold Standard should be emulated by hotels the world over.It presents the principles that have guided Ritz Carlton to become the premier brand that it is.Kudos to Joseph. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Shopper
Book was in fine condition. Binding was a little loose and there was a little writing on some pages. Serves its purpose just fine.

2-0 out of 5 stars The book most schools require, but not the best!
I went to school for cosmetology in 2007 partly using the older green covered milady cosmetology book. It was more informative with wording, pictures and descriptions. This "new" 2008 book cut out a lot of the information, but had the same exact pictures from the older book. So instead of improving the information, how-to steps, and guides in this new book, they cut out more pictures and information and added new work books, theory books etc. Milady makes more money, schools make you buy the work books. And while the work books are very helpful, its much easier to have 1 book to carry around, then having several books to carry around, or refer to if you are looking for help. Sadly most cosmetology schools are hole in the wall places, that do not have passionate teachers. So if this book lacks in information and up to date pictures etc, you cannot always rely on your teacher to teach you as I could not when I went back to school. If the book had better step by step directions, and actually put more content into it, than having less than their old book!- then people would benefit more and think better of Milady. Very disappointed, its like having the older book, but with less pictures and information, just a new cover. Waste of creating, they could have done so much. Did not even change the 1990's looking pictures, besides the outer cover. Lucky for me, I had the old green covered milady textbook so when I needed further help, I got to refer to it, my classmates did not. The works books that match this are really good I have to say, but who wants to have to flip through other books trying to find an answer, when that is what this one is supposed to do. Not happy, but the school made me get this book.

3-0 out of 5 stars poor condition
The book information was very useful for my daughter's class, but the book came to us all torn. Pages were torn and written all over. The seller of this book stated that the book was in very good condition. I will not buy another used book again because the sellers can be trusted.

2-0 out of 5 stars Very average book
This is a very average book. There is very little information on each topic and it's mostly
just fluff. I mostly looked at the hair dyeing information and there was not much written on the topic
at all, very little that specifically explained how to dye hair.
Also, there was a section in the book on vitiligo (which I know a lot about) that was completely
inaccurate. There's no excuse for that - they seemed to be confusing it with psoriasis (some
completely unrelated skin problem). How can you caution people on how to apply a cosmetic product to
someone with a skin issue if the book does not even print remotely accurate information?
Definitely not worth the money unless someone makes you buy the book for a class. It needs to be
updated for accuracy and useful information. ... Read more

Many thanks this was a very good bible. I just wish that it didnt come with all those sticky notes on it :P but that's ok ^.^ this bible will help me learn about christianity, because right now i am a wiccan witch :) haha but i will probably read it while listening to wiccan music, soo xDD sorry.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is a great value.
This is a great value. Quality is very good and print large enough to actually read! We use the NASB in our church because we believe it to be the most popular translation - we've tried them all!

5-0 out of 5 stars Gift well worth the giving !
I bought an NASB Bible for a handicapped friend's birthday.I saw him at church on Sunday and he said he loves it.The print was easy to read just as the advertisement said.The hardcover will wear well.It will give many great hours of reading.

Buying through Amazon was so easy and delivery quick, making this kind of purchase a joy.I will surely buy from Amazon again trusting I will get what is advertised.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Bible I've Read, My "Desert Island" Bible
So, I've read the King James Version, New Revised Standard Version, the New Living Translation, and the New International Version, and this bible, the New American Standard, is the one I personally connect with the best.I have fallen in love with this bible knowing that it is considered the "most accurate" of bible translations and that the way it is worded is now so fluent and engaging.I feel as though, after reading all the translations above, this is the truest of the translations.I believe the original texts have been translated perfectly into English in this version while preserving the true nature of words of the prophets of old.I have had spoken with a number of other people in lessons and prayer groups, and we have compared scripture from a number of different bibles; it is almost unanimous that this bible reigns above all in it's accuracy and in the way it is worded.My mother reads the New Living Translation, because she finds bible hard to understand.When I read scripture from this bible to her, she understood immediately and said, "that's beautiful."Her words express my point: it's simple enough for anyone to read, and accurate enough to study.If you're looking for the best bible out there, you've found it, in my opinion.A review that I read on the Top 10 Bible Versions said this was #3 on his list, yet if he could bring one version with him to a desert island, this would be it.I don't agree with the #3 ranking, but I agree that this would be my choice of all the bible's I've read.Bless all those who seek God in their lives!

5-0 out of 5 stars New American Standard Bible/Paperback
This is a very nice paperback bible and my first one with the New American Standard translation. This is probably the easiest to understand translation.

It's a bargain for the modest price I paid for it. ... Read more

A completely new typeset and designed edition of the popular Ignatius Revised Standard Version Bible, with minor revisions to some of the archaic language used in the first edition. This revised version is a contemporary English translation without dumbing-down the text. This second edition of the RSV doesn't put the biblical text through a filter to make it acceptable to current tastes and prejudices, and it retains the beauty of the RSV language that has made it such a joy to read and reflect on the Word of God. Now the only Catholic Bible in standard English is even more beautiful in word and design! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Only wish it was leather!
Wow, a breath of fresh air after reading the previous translation for so long.I kind of miss some of the Old English, because some nuances can be lost, but I greatly appreciate the ease of the read.Maybe someday someone will come out with an addition that identifies the three different types of love.Anyway, I wish that I would have waited for the leather edition to come out.This paperback edition is taking a beating and I like the translation enough to have spent the extra money for something nicer.Don't skimp of your Bible if you really plan to read it, love it, and write notes in it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Unhelpful footnotes
Let me start by saying the RSV Ignatius Press Bible is a wonderful translation.The Bible Commentaries are a necessary supplement since there is not much in the way of footnotes.For example, "Then these men were bound in their mantles, their tunics, their hats, and their other garments, and they were cast into the burning fiery furnace."Daniel 3:21.There is a footnote reference "d"which states "The meaning of the Aramaic word is uncertain."How necessary of a statement is that?Limited footnotes is not the weakness but rather unhelpful footnotes.My recommendation would be to purchase the Bible IF you intend to purchase the Commentaries or if you already have NAB, or if you cross reference biblical passages.Again, it is an excellent translation, fine quality, and portable.That aside, it would be nice if it came in a larger font size.

2-0 out of 5 stars The Ignatius Bible, Kindle edition
This review is specific to the Kindle version.

First of all let me state that I like the Ignatius Bible in a paper format.The Kindle version does not have the book name or chapter listed in a header.Just the name of the bible.If you tap a link, you go to the link but you have to keep track of where you are since the kindle will not tell you.

I have used bible readers in the past and the kindle version does not compare.

Get a sample of it and try it before you buy it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Wandering plot.....
This is essentially a collection of short stories; many which don't seem to gel well together.In the first half, the main character is an angry and vengeful person.In the second half, he is sweet and forgiving.Some of the short stories appear to be the same story told in different ways; and the author didn't even bother to change the name of the main character.The ending is also totally bizarre.I am not quite sure I understood it-- but I am hoping the sequel will explain some of this.3 out of 5 stars.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't Buy the Kindle Version
The Kindle version hijacked my Kindle. The version is too hard to navigate. I wanted to return it almost as soon as it appeared in my device. While this translation may be heaven-sent, the Kindle rendering of it is closer to Purgatory. Nothing about the navigation is intuitive. One has to hunt to find the Table of Contents--then work even harder to find the books. Stay away from this version till St Ignatius comes to his Kindle-senses. ... Read more

Product Description

Most architectural standards references contain thousands of pages of details-overwhelmingly more than architects need to know to know on any given day. Now there is a place where architects can find vital information essential to planning and executing architectural projects of all shapes and sizes-in a format that is small enough to carry anywhere. Materials, Structures, and Standards distills the data provided in standard architectural volumes and offers and easy-to-use reference for the most indispensable-and most requested-types of architectural information.

Part 1, "Building an Architectural Project," addresses basic geometry, architectural drawing types, AutoCAD guidelines, building codes, accessibility issues, structural and mechanical systems, conventional building components, and sustainable design. Part 2, "Materials," provides a detailed catalog of wood, masonry and brick, metals, concrete, and interior finishes. Also included are an illustrated glossary of architectural terms and a cross-referenced guide to the most helpful books, organizations, and websites.

5-0 out of 5 stars must have
My son is getting his masters in architecture. This book is a must have in his opinion.

4-0 out of 5 stars great for undergrad student...
I bought this book last year when I started architecture grad school hoping it would be a one-stop resource for grad-level studio courses and it has been an OK resource.It is very well organized and covers a lot of basic, very handy, information: nominal material dimensions and standards, wood joinery, explains board feet and plywood grades, steel shapes in section & and how to interrupt what a W8x67 means, stair tread & risers guidelines, parking configurations, drawing set standards and abbreviations, and some detailing, code and structural basics.The problem for me is that I bought this book two years late, as I picked up a lot of this information the hard way in undergraduate school (B.S. architectural studies).I have now found myself using my classmate's copy of The Architect's Studio Companion (and have now bought myself a copy) more than this book as it covers structural, systems, and egress rules of thumb with much more depth.

I would highly recommend this book for anyone starting an undergrad architecture program or grad program w/o prior experience. There is a whole lot of good, basic architectural info in this book that will make life a little easier, but it lacks the depth to be a solid resource at a graduate level.

5-0 out of 5 stars priceless
I know it says all the details an "Architect" needs to know, but I'm studying Landscape Architecture and I had to buy my own copy because my Architecture neighbor was tired of retrieving her copy off of my desk.

It is a vey Condensed Copy of the original one. It is a kind of disappointment for me when I got the delivery.
Try to buy the original one not the student version...

5-0 out of 5 stars A design classic
This a much cheaper yet still useful version of the architect's bible. Any person who designs space should have either this or the unabridged edition.

1-0 out of 5 stars Displeased
I was displeased with the description of the item in relation to the final product i recieved.

4-0 out of 5 stars An abridgement of the ninth edition
At less than $40 for a used copy, the Student Edition can't be beat, as it provides most of the essential information from the complete Graphic Standards.The information is organized along the lines of Masterspec with additional sections on Energy and Environmental Design and Historic Preservation. It is certainly enough to get you started.It is also important to have relevant code books. Ching's Building Codes Illustrated is a good place to start.It is nice to have so much building construction information consolidated into one book. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC!
I'm so pleased to have it shipped just in time and in perfect condition! I'm so excited to use this book (I am a student studying Music Education). My teacher recommended that I should get this book to have it in my library (of music/repertoire), and she was right!
There are:
-many great songs (in a variety of languages),
-a lot of references,
-large print (very big plus! it is so much easier to read the text and the notes),
-mini biographies of the composers,
-translations of songs (Spanish, French, German and Italian),
-and two cds: one to help with pronunciation, as well as one just for accompaniment.

These are all necessary tools that help singers prepare for a performance, from interpretation to accompaniment for practicing...

I will definitely enjoy the music!

3-0 out of 5 stars Standard Vocal Literature - An Introduction to Repertoire: Soprano (Vocal Library)
The editions are acceptable, and the choice of repertoire is quite good. The product is described as containing an accompaniment cd, and indeed it does, except that the accompaniments are all played on the piano. There would be nothing wrong with this if there were some indication of this fact in the product description, but there was no such indication. Therefore, I expected the accompaniments to be from the composers' scores. I hoped for too much, and was disappointed.

3-0 out of 5 stars good collection - but some problems
I have the Baritone edition.It is a good collection of songs from a wide variety of styles and languages.However, there is a pretty important issue with the transpositions in some cases.In some of the pieces, the highest note is a D.Of course, a baritone would never be expected to reach high D, but this leaves you with the octave-down range.This would be just fine, but the songs just sound too low and don't match recordings of other baritones performing the same pieces.It basically seems that some (not all) of these songs are actually written (or transposed) for a bass - not a baritone.Usually, songs written or transposed for baritones reach E flat at a minimum, often an F.These are "classical" songs, for the most part, and a classical baritone should reach the occasional F (at least) with little difficulty.

Also, and this is a minor point that I deal with fairly often, most of the songs are written on the treble clef.Baritones and basses normally use the bass clef.

Later addition: I talked with my voice teacher about this and he says I'm wrong!For this type of song, I should not be going too high and the keys in this book are in fact appropriate.So, I should change my rating to at least 4 stars.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must for all aspiring sopranos
You will find a healthy year's worth of instruction in this book.A great blend of styles and languages.

One of my favorite points is that this book comes with two CDs.The CDs include pronounciation aids for everything not in English, and piano accompaniament for all of the songs.I would, of course, have recommended that the money and effort be put out to hire a tallented soprano to demonstrate all of the pieces, but that's a minor gripe.

The selection of songs was artfully chosen, with a wide range of challenging and beautiful pieces included.Although not one of my favorites, "I Attempt From Love's Sickness" is a great repertoire song, and is a great tool to develop flexibility and fluidity of movement in the voice.In contrast, Love's Philosophy is a huge "little" song, barely a minute in duration depending on how it's performed, but climaxing to a huge, full-voiced peak at the end.It's a perfect encore piece, and a great addition to any recital.

In the French songs, the selection is limited to the typical French-style art songs.Since there is less variety in the really good French songs available, the editor has chosen some of the more beautiful and standard pieces.Si mes vers avaient des ailes is a beautiful, light love song, where Plaisir carries a bit heavier feel to the melody.

Both of the Schubert pieces are outstanding German repertoire pieces, and Du bist die Ruh is one of the more challenging pieces in the book if performed correctly.

In the theme of lyrical-type music, the editor includes Del cabello mas sutil as a Spanish piece, O mio babbino caro for Italian opera, and Pie Jesu for Latin oratorio.All three of these pieces showcase nearly any developing soprano voice, and provide a reasonable challenge to any young or begining singer.

As a fun change, The Sun, Whose Rays Are All Ablaze, provides a change to the rest of the pieces, boardering on an introduction to coloratura styling.It moves much more quickly and demands a lightness in the voice that is not required for "Babbino", "Cabello" or "Love's Philosophy".

I have selected a few of the most widely known and sung pieces to highlight, but the teacher and student alike would be encouraged to explore each of the pieces in this collection, as each provides a wealth of learning and development opportunities.

Product Description
Best-selling author, designer, and web standards evangelist Jeffrey Zeldman has revisited his classic, industry-shaking guidebook. Updated in collaboration with co-author Ethan Marcotte, this third edition covers improvements and challenges in the changing environment of standards-based design.

Written in the same engaging and witty style, making even the most complex information easy to digest, Designing with Web Standards remains your essential guide to creating sites that load faster, reach more users, and cost less to design and maintain.

  • Substantially revised—packed with new ideas
  • How will HTML5, CSS3, and web fonts change your work?
  • Learn new strategies for selling standards
  • Change what “IE6 support” means
“Occasionally (very occasionally) you come across an author who makes you think, ‘This guy is smart! And he makes me feel smarter, because now I finally understand this concept.’” — Steve Krug, author of Don’t Make Me Think and Rocket Surgery Made Easy

“A web designer without a copy of Designing with Web Standards is like a carpenter without a level. With this third edition, Zeldman continues to be the voice of clarity; explaining the complex in plain English for the rest of us.” — Dan Cederholm, author, Bulletproof Web Design and Handcrafted CSS

“Jeffrey Zeldman sits somewhere between ‘guru’ and ‘god’ in this industry—and manages to fold wisdom and wit into a tale about WHAT web standards are, HOW standards-based coding works, and WHY we should care.” — Kelly Goto, author, Web ReDesign 2.0: Workflow that Works

“Some books are meant to be read. Designing with Web Standards is even more: intended to be highlighted, dogeared, bookmarked, shared, passed around, and evangelized, it goes beyond reading to revolution.” — Liz Danzico, Chair, MFA Interaction Design, School of Visual Arts
Amazon.com Review
Standards, argues Jeffrey Zeldman in Designing With Web Standards, are our only hope for breaking out of the endless cycle of testing that plagues designers hoping to support all possible clients. In this book, he explains how designers can best use standards--primarily XHTML and CSS, plus ECMAScript and the standard Document Object Model (DOM)--to increase their personal productivity and maximize the availability of their creations. Zeldman's approach is detailed, authoritative, and rich with historical context, as he is quick to explain how features of standards evolved. It's a fantastic education that any design professional will appreciate.

Zeldman is an idealist who devotes some of his book to explaining how much easier life would be if browser developers would just support standards properly (he's done a lot toward this goal in real life, as well). He is also a pragmatist, who recognizes that browsers implement standards differently (or partially, or not at all) and that it is the job of the Web designer to make pages work anyway. Thus, his book includes lots of explicit and tightly focused tips (with code) that have to do with bamboozling non-compliant browsers into behaving as they should, without tripping up more compliant browsers. There's lots of coverage of design and testing tools that can aid in the creation of good-looking, standards-abiding documents. --David Wall

Topics covered: Why Web standards (such as XHTML, CSS, ECMAScript, and DOM) are good for everyone, and why site designers and browser makers should move towards standards compliance. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Web Standards Bible
I bought the first edition when it came out 5 or more years ago, and it completely changed the way I design and develop. I just bought this updated version at the urging of a friend. There are lots of web designers and developers that will tell you the same thing. This book not only outlines best practices from the perspective of coding, but it delivers lots of insight and includes chapters on dealing with clients and more. The definitive work on contemporary web design from the "Grandfather of the Web". Not just for designers and developers but for web site owners too. Written in a very conversational style.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not enough doing....
...being relatively new to CSS web design I've read quite a few books that seem to promise much to the novice web designer and although this book has some great information I expected to perhaps roll up my sleeves and get under the bonnet! (AKA The hood in the US!) I realize that I'm one edition behind everyone else but this book was quite disappointing to some extent! As some of the other readers pointed out, the book takes far too long to get going and pretty much repeats itself over and over with very similar points throughout the first part! Part II, I was thinking, "Here we go, let's roll up those sleeves!" but alas, I never really had to get my hands dirty and use some good old fashioned elbow grease! Some great information and Jeffrey is obviously very knowledgeable about CSS and designing with web standards but for me at least, there could have been more practical building examples to learn the trade! I read this book intently each evening after work, waiting for the enlightenment but it never came! Maybe I missed the plot but I chalk it up as another web design book that promises much but delivers far less than expected! Maybe the 3rd edition has more practical real world examples to work with but I'm not sure if I'll be parting with my hard earned cash again!

2-0 out of 5 stars Hard to Recommend
To summarize: too much lecture not enough tangible content. As other reviewers who are not keen on the book point out the first six chapters go on and on about the same topics - these chapters could easily be condensed down to one or two chapters. When Mr. Zeldman finally does give examples (and there aren't that many) they are oversimplified.

If you are looking for a technical book that provides concrete examples of how to improve your HTML markup and coding practices this is not it. If you want to hear Mr. Zeldman being witty while attempting (unsuccessfully) to provide insight on this complex topic then by all means this is the title for you.

5-0 out of 5 stars The definitive guide to web standards
Jeffrey Zeldman did it again. He made a huge impact with his Designing with Web Standards book (1st ed) close to a decade ago. Well, he's published his third edition, and it is as insightful as the first. This book is up to date, and covers modern technologies, from HTML5 to CSS3 to IE8.

Readers of this book will gain a valuable insight into the recent history of web standards, be shown where things are now, and get a glimpse at where they may be going.

Anyone connected to the web development process should read this book: developers (obviously), designers, supervisors. The book uses simple language, is not code-heavy, and is readable by programmers and non-programmers.

5-0 out of 5 stars Ammo to use when doubters question why we code the way we do
This book is not a step-by-step or hands-on-training kind of book, but is a confidence builder for developers that are already validating code and thinking of what tags are most appropriate for a particular piece of markup, in other words, those that are designing with web standards.This edition has a lot of new material, and the inclusion of Ethan Marcotte is a big plus.Jeffrey Zeldman writes in a way similar to Molly Holzschlag in her 2002 book 'Integrated Web Design', or Jeffrey Veen in his 2000 book 'The Art and Science of Web Design' - he is giving us ammo to use when doubters question why we code the way we do. He has taught these same skills in An Event Apart, in his 'how to talk to a client' presentation. In this book, you have it all in one place and can cover it at your own leisure. With Ethan Marcotte's contribution, you have some great design tips, and the whole thing stays current, with html5, grids and typography covered. ... Read more

Product Description
Formative Assessment and Standards-Based Grading offers teachers everything they need to know to implement an integrated system of assessment and grading that will enhance both their own teaching and their students learning. Much has been written about the benefits of formative assessment that is, assessment that is used while instruction is occurring rather than at the end of a course or unit but most descriptions of the practice have been general. Dr. Robert Marzano provides the specifics. He explains how to design and interpret three different types of formative assessments, how to track student progress, and how to assign meaningful grades, even if a school or district continues to use a traditional grading system. He brings each concept to life with detailed examples of teachers from different subject areas applying it in their classrooms.The second book in the Classroom Strategies That Work library, this clear, highly practical guide follows the series format, first summarizing key research and then translating it into recommendations for classroom practice. In addition to the explanations and examples of assessment and grading strategies, each chapter includes helpful exercises to reinforce the reader s understanding of the content. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Resourse For Screenwriters of All Levels
In THE HOLLYWOOD STANDARD, Christopher Riley uses hundreds of clear and concise examples to show us what we are doing right and wrong with regards to screenplay formatting.As a Film Professor, this is an critical tool for students and seasoned writers alike.Riley's attention to detail mirrors the specificity one must have in creating an entertaining piece of literature that is the modern screenplay.I will be using this text in my classes.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not a Good Book to Buy for the Kindle
I sort of don't know what I was thinking when I bought the digital version of this book for my Kindle.(Well, actually, I know exactly what I was thinking: "I want this and I want it now.")Because the content of this book deals so heavily with the specifics of screenplay formatting, one really needs to be able to see the full-page layouts Riley provides.And because it is above all else a reference book, the ability to rapidly flip back and forth between pages would be helpful.The Kindle, as much as I love it, makes this kind of reading very difficult.

That said, the information herein is rock-solid, and having it in digital form doesn't diminish its usefulness, I suppose.The book is well organized, and about as engaging and accessible as an instruction manual on formatting can be.

I'd give the book four-and-a-half or five stars, but only it in its old-fashioned form, with bound pages and all.The Kindle copy of this product is, it pains me to admit, kind of a waste of money.Amazon (or the publisher) ought to reconsider the fact that it offers a Kindle version of this, but I'm guessing that won't happen as long as there are impulsive suckers like me out there.

Ah, well.Caveat emptor.

4-0 out of 5 stars Pay attention to table of contents
If you sit down and just read the book you may be a tad disoriented. They is a slim chance you will remember and be able to apply all of the rules when you sit down to write.
And that is because I do believe this is "complete and authoritative" because the author gives you the separate rules and standards for all the different types of scripts.... from spec scripts to scripts in pre-production and into production... from TV scripting or Feature Film, the rules are different. Such as a comment made here about whether to use (CONT'D) or not. This book explains that. I really enjoy using this book to reference and help me make sure my scripts are perfectly formatted (although that's not to say I don't reference other sources in addition) I give this book four stars only because perhaps the formatting of the book itself may confuse some people, my advise is to use the table of contents and search for the things you need in the moment.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book
I've read about 20 screenwriting books. You'd think with FinalDraft and all of the other screenwriting software, you wouldn't need a book like this, but you do. There's so much more to delivering a properly formatted, professional looking screenplay than what the software can do for you and this book explains in a well-laid out, easy-to-read style, exactly what your screenplay needs to look like AND what it SHOULDN'T look like. I teach a screenwriting course, and this is on the MUST BUY list.

2-0 out of 5 stars This is for Shooting Scripts
If you're writing a spec script, beware this book misses a LOT of important differences.The title and first page are different for spec scripts, you don't put all NOISES in caps, your transitions are limited to 2 or 3 per script, and so forth.I recommend David Trottier's "Bible" and "Dr. Format" to get you straight on all the rules you need to know about spec scripts.Save this book for after you are well grounded in all the spec script rules. ...

It provides everything it claims to provide.I prefer this book's organization compared to the organization of similar standard books. It's a great quick reference for sport field dimensions and similar details I don't memorize.I know it's accurate and it's at my finger tips.

5-0 out of 5 stars great resource!
At long last, a definitive reference book on landscape architecture. Especially useful is the section on historic landscapes, which is an excellent summary of this sub-field of landscape architecture.

5-0 out of 5 stars A very good investment
As another reviewer says, this book is infinitely better organized and user-friendly than Time Saver Standards for LA's while containing all of the same information. I believe that its use to me throughout my career will more than justify its hefty price tag. It should definitely be an addition to any office library. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Revolutionary teaching!
The concepts in this book, along with those found in Larry's other book, Unwrapping the Standards, can revolutionize the way state standards are met in the classroom.I recently had the honor of meeting Larry in person and taking a four day workshop from him.He is a wonderful human being who is passionate about teaching children in a manner that actually matters.I have implemented some of Larry's strategies in my own classroom, and my students found them engaging and exciting. These books are well written and packed with information.Although I would recommend taking a workshop from Larry in order to make the best use of the books, one could certainly read the books independently and use them effectively. ...
