5-0 out of 5 stars Very helpful book
I bought this book in college because it was part of my required text for my degree in Interior design.I have been out of school for 4 years and I still keep it at my desk or nearby when I am doing drawings.I recommend this book to anyone who is in the design industry.The details and information in this book saves the designer from having to go through multiple books looking for specific details.

5-0 out of 5 stars excellent condition, very good price
This is a great reference book for designers and architects. It arrived very timely,in excellent conditions and I could not ask for a better price.

5-0 out of 5 stars An encyclopedia for interior designers
This book is packed with info on furniture design, drafting tips, and use of theme for virtually every type of space. Perfect for students! Accompanied by plenty of illustrations to reference.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great price and perfect condition
This textbook was required for my Basic Drafting class.It was cheaper to go through Amazon than my school's bookstore.I recieved the textbook in great condition and in time for class to start.Very happy with this seller.

5-0 out of 5 stars Time-Saver Standards for Interior Design and Space Planning
HUGE ASSET! This book has everything in it and has been extremely helpful. It is a big book, therefore, it is not easy to carry around. I take it to school occasionally-I have chosen to lug it around in a rolling cart--most helpful for all those books and drawing tools, etc.One downside, sometimes the print is so small you may have to have a magnifying glass to see what is written.
Purchasing this book on Amazon saved me a lot of money. I highly recommend this book for Interior Design students and Designers. ... 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. ...

I purchased this Milady textbook to help me study to achieve my goal of becoming a hair stylist.I highly recommend that if you choose this text, you buy the other accompanying books also (exam review, practice workbook, etc.)I studied this textbook while at my sisters salon (where I could see other stylists cutting/shaping hair).
I found the reading to be very interesting.There is information about hair that a person would never even think about.The reading was very easy to understand, and I can appreciate that fact very much.

1-0 out of 5 stars THE BEST BIBLE YOU'LL NEVER USE
I LOVE the Oxford Annotated and use it along with the HarperCollins and New Interpreter's for my work in seminary and at church, and I have recommended the Oxford to literally hundreds of people.When I found out that a new edition had been released, I announced it in our church newsletter and I went ahead and bought 15, meaning to sell them to our members at cost or to give them as gifts.Why 1 star?It's because

1) THE PAPER ON WHICH IT IS PRINTED IS A BAD JOKE. Just like the New Interpreter's, you cannot open and close the thing without having the pages bend back upon themselves.The pages become crumpled with even the gentlest use.

2) CONTENT DOESN'T MATTER IF YOU CANNOT READ THE PRINT.There are two factors at play here.The font is miniscule and the paper is virtually transparent.How they printed this in the first place is a miracle of science.

3) PEOPLE NEED THIS BIBLE IN THEIR HANDS.I gave this Bible to two separate people who had said that they wanted one. I asked them to be honest and let me know if they thought that they would have trouble reading it.Both of them handed their copies back to me saying "No, thank you." - even with the Church picking up half the cost.

Dear Whoever Makes These Decisions:

I work hard to convince people that they need to get a first-class, academic Study Bible.It is a hard sell because they are so bound to their "relevant", "real world", (Shall I go on?), quasi-scholarly, agenda-driven, anything but the NRSV, Devotional Bibles. Please believe me when I say that those of us who care about the wonderful work that you do are willing to carry around larger, heavier Bibles if what we get is stronger, more opaque paper, and larger fonts. We would be HAPPY to pay more if you would improve the printing and bind the books so that they can stand up to the years of use that the Oxford Annotated, HarperCollins and New Interpreter's warrant.

I would be DELIGHTED to see a post from a representative of Oxford University Press, HarperCollins, or Abingdon Press saying that you plan to reexamine your printing decisions.For what it's worth, whichever of you guys comes out with a physical product that approaches your outstanding scholarship, will have my order and another 100 to go with it.

P.S.:Anybody want 15 unreadable Bibles?I'm selling them cheap.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Research Bible for Study

5-0 out of 5 stars Great study resource!
THis is a wonderful study Bible, received in great condition and when promised.Amazon had a lot of great choices and I'm extremely pleased with both the description of its condition (which was excellent; just like new) and with its content.

5-0 out of 5 stars All things considered, a very good Bible
I "upgraded" from the Augmented Third Edition. This new edition is definitely an improvement. It's a bit more liberal but still upholds the essentials like the divinity of Christ, etc.The Oxford Annotated is the first study Bible I've seen that doesn't assume inerrancy so it's not afraid to point out flaws in the text, but it still treats the Bible with the proper respect, and doesn't try to reduce it to just another piece of ancient literature.
The binding for the hardcover edition seems to be a little sturdier, so that's a nice improvement, and it's generally a nice-looking book. The cover is more attractive than the Third Edition. One change they made that I didn't like is that in the Third Edition each page had the beginning and ending verses at the top of the page, and they unfortunately removed that feature in the Fourth Edition.
All things considered, this is the best liberal study Bible out there, and I strongly recommend it.
If they would just add cross-references and chapter headings and restore the beginning and ending verses thing I mentioned then it would be perfect. ... Read more

The Standards Real Book (C Version) by Chuck Sher is everything that I hoped it would be and more. The song is list is great, chord options are outstanding. Being a guy who just got back to playing the guitar after more than 40 years, I am playing the songs I want to play while learning to chord options. EXCELLENT PRODUCT, (Chuck I want The Standards Real Book (C Version) #2).
BTW, I sent an email to the Chuck's company email address and he answered it personally the same day - you can't for better customer service than that; thank you Chuck.

5-0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Fakebook
I too would love to be able to have a Volume II of this "Real Jazz Standards Fakebook".

I have almost every fakebook there is: Hal Leonards "Real Jazz Standards Fakebook", "The Real Book" (Vol I, II and III). "The New Real Book" (Vol. I, II and III) etc. If I could have only one fakebook it would be "The Standards Real Book" by Sher Music. I am a professional pianist that performs at a lot of receptions, parties and weddings. This book has the highest percentage of songs that I like to play that fit those well paid society piano type jobs. I also love having the "Verse" sections for intros to the well know parts.

4-0 out of 5 stars Well done.
This book, together with the Sher "New Real Book" series are well done lead sheets.I think the Hal Leonard "Real Book" series has more of what I would consider the "old" standards (30s-50s), though there is a lot of overlap in titles between the series.I think you can check the index/table of contents online to see the titles included, to see if it has what you want.The Sher series seems to be a little more aggressive with alternative chords/progressions than the Hal Leonard series.The print is a little clearer, and there are lyrics included with many of the tunes (Hal Leonard Real Book series generally does not).Chord changes vary slightly between same tunes in the Sher and Hal Leonard series, but can't say that one is better or worse.


I bought both the Sher and Hal Leonard series, and am happy with both. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars 2nd edition worth the investment
If you have procrastinated so long in taking the PgMP Exam that you had purchased the first edition to study, time to go back to the well and purchase the second edition, because you are going to need it.Changes are clearly outlined at the front end of the book, and they are significant.This is probably required reading (2nd Edition) before investing the time, effort and money required for testing for PgMP certification.

4-0 out of 5 stars One of the best PMO books. Definitely useful than PMBOK
Contrary to my own belief, this is actually not bad of a guide for program management. I definitely used this book and some of the references to create a deck that I presented to senior managers. They found the content to be very useful.

I think PMI did a great job in this book than the PMBOK, which is definitely a good bed time material. This book is well written and flows nicely. I didnt expect that I will actually like this book and use it for anything beyond just knowledge but I found that some of the graphics are helpful and can be used for presentations. That to me along with the deep and thorough practical examples made this book a 4 star.

4-0 out of 5 stars Used This to Pass the PgMP Exam
The Second Edition is light years ahead of the First Edition--I've read both.I received my PgMP certification this month.Since there were NO STUDY GUIDES available anywhere that covered the material presented in the Second Edition, I simply read this standard along with PMI's Program Management Professional (PgMP) Examination Specification.These two books and 15+ years of practical program/project management experience helped me pass the exam.

4-0 out of 5 stars Basics of Program Management
It is a basic and fundamental book of Program Management. I can really recommend it if you want to buy a handbook of Program Management.

4-0 out of 5 stars Second Revision is a big improvement!
Project Management Institute issued the second revision of their program management standard in December 2008.The second edition is a significant improvement over the first edition published in 2006.Detailed changes are noted in an Appendix A to the standard, but in general, this is a totally new document, not merely a revision.The standard is now 324 pages, versus 109 pages, themes were deleted, knowledge areas added, and other major modifications were performed.

PMI's The Standard for Program Management - Second Edition is linear in approach, with very generic good practice recommendations.It assumes that the entire scope of the program is known early on, which is not true in all programs, or it plans for an R&D type phase that will answer the outstanding questions.The standard is very non-prescriptive in nature, allowing the implementing organization to create the best implementation method.This type of standard is helpful, but requires significant organizational expertise to help the implementation process.

For those who are looking for a methodolgy to implement see Office of Government Commerce, (2007), Managing Successful Programmes: Delivering Business Change in Multi-project Environments Book, 8th impression, The Stationery Office, Norwich, UK.It is a very good method of implementing program management in an organization and is in line with PMI's standard. ...

Editorial Review

Product Description
Complete and comprehensive coverage is given of the full ANSI/ISO C++ standard.Amazon.com Review
Programming with the C++ Standard Library can certainly bedifficult, but Nicolai Josuttis's The C++ Standard Libraryprovides one of the best available guides to using the built-infeatures of C++ effectively.

The C++ Standard Library providesplenty of default functionality in the form of the Standard TemplateLibrary (STL) for containers (like vectors and linked lists), as wellas generic algorithms (which allow you to sort, search, and manipulateelements inside containers). The best thing about The C++ StandardLibrary is that it gives the reader a concise guide to workingwith these basic containers (from lists to sets and maps, witheverything in between). Each container type is explained along withshort code excerpts. Moreover, in a reference section, the authorexplores the connections between each container type, showing how theyshare similar methods. (Learn just a few methods and you can prettymuch work with them all.)

In addition to STL, this book excels atproviding a readable introduction to the generic algorithms (which canbe used to sort, search, and otherwise manipulate STLcontainers). Other books either fold this material in with theexplanation of containers or make it seem like an esoteric topic. Thefact is, generic algorithms work with all the STL types, and byseparating these algorithms out like this the reader can learn therich array of algorithms available in today's standard C++. While thisbook concentrates on STL and algorithms, readers will still find greatcoverage on Standard Library string classes and streams (including afine section on internationalization and locales).

For thebeginning or intermediate C++ programmer, The C++ StandardLibrary can be a real timesaver. It arranges and explains thecomplexities of the C++ Standard Library and STL in a manageableformat that's great as a reference and as an approach toprogramming. --Richard Dragan

Topics covered: historyof C++ and the Standard Library, template basics, Big-O Notation, thestd namespace, standard exceptions, allocators, standard libraryutilities, pairs and auto_ptr, numeric limits, the Standard TemplateLibrary (STL) basics, containers, iterators, algorithms, vectors,lists, deques, strings, sets, multisets, bitsets, maps, multimaps,stacks, queues, iterator adapters, function objects, elementrequirements, value and reference semantics, complex numbers,valarrays, stream classes, stream manipulators and formatting, fileI/O, internationalization, and locales. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Bad formatting on smaller Kindle devices
I got this for my Kindle rather than a bulky book to save on space, and I wish I'd just paid the couple of dollars extra to get a real copy.The formatting on many of the coding examples is TERRIBLE and what's even worse is some examples actually have text cut off!I've just wasted 20 minutes trying to find a link to notify Amazon of the problem without any luck which makes it even more frustrating.This book doesn't seem to be marked as "optimized for larger devices" and regardless, it's unacceptable that meaningful text is lost.

2-0 out of 5 stars Full of algorithmic errors
I bought this book by looking at the overall ratings and I had a need for a reference book for STL.

The organization of the book is not smooth and of course there are many algorithmic errors.For starters the example of autoptrs on page 44-46.

I was not convinced by the example and hence I tried at home, the example does not behave as described.

I complained to author and mailed him my implementation.He balked and told me "It is compilers fault.And his example is solid."

Then the implementation of reference semantics example on page 222-223.

The count is increased for the object which is created later and thus the count on all objects referring to same object differes in every object.

Thus if the earliest created object is destructed first, then the whole reference semantics example will break.

I wrote to the author and he said "He does not have the time to look at the example.He is very busy."

My suggestion is for everybody that take the examples in the book with a pinch of salt.Try them first before getting convinced.

There are explanatory errors in containers for rbegin, rend functions and their uses, and the containers code does not include the type of the arguments or the return type.The iterator of any conatainer semantics are not explained in a comprehensive way.

And there is no good example of using the constructor

Container(beg, end).

Fast shipping, problem free. Very impressed! My book is in great condition! I will return in the future.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very informative, clear explanations
I am not new to STL, however this book provided me with a much deeper understanding of the inner workings an nuances of STL.

Some people have complained of the examples.I found them concise and to the point, giving clear and straight forward examples of the topic.

1-0 out of 5 stars The Kindle edition is terrible
Don't get me wrong. Content-wise, this book is indispensable. However, the Kindle edition is almost unusable. The contents of the book are all displayed using a single proportional font, and it appears that most of the formatting for the source code is lost. As a result, you find that you have source code getting lost in the middle of text, incomprehensible pieces of code where things are spread over two or three lines, and just plain messiness all around. The loss of formatting of the source code makes this edition of the book almost useless for the purpose of reference. I am afraid that this is a problem we will be seeing for most ebooks for a long time, and it is rather depressing. In short, I can't recommend this book in electronic form. Go ahead and bite the bullet and just haul the regular one around. ... Read more

If I had to keep but one reference book on my shelf as a Professional Interior Designer, this would be the book. It contains in-depth and well-formatted information on virtually every subject in the field, and the graphics are outstanding.One of the authors, Maryrose McGowan, is a powerhouse and has done a remarkable job with this guide and I hope she comes out with many other useful books to advance the profession.This book has quickly replaced several books I previously owned that attempted to do what this book has done with great simplicity, completeness, and accuracy.

The chapters are well-organized, the graphics are abundant, clear, and easy-to-understand, and they contain information from all ends of the spectrum.The price tag of the book is steep, but well worth the investment.Save your pennies and make a point of buying this book, or look for used versions as they come available on Amazon.com.You will be glad to have this book in your collection!

Product Description
This book, the most comprehensive and basic working tool available to the design professional, encompasses every area of expertise required in the practice of contemporary interior design.

Architects, interior designers, drafters, specifiers, and designers and manufacturers of building materials, furnishings, and equipment for interiors will find essential specification data and thousands of fully metricated, dimensioned drawings of interiors and the components of interiors. The range is vast: materials that range from hinges for cabinet doors to ceramic tiles for tub enclosures; drawings of standard and custom millwork for hundreds of specific interior applications; detailed dimensioned plans for custom casework; fully dimensioned room layouts keyed to drawings of individual details; illustrations, with dimensions, of standard and special-purpose furnishings and equipment. Throughout, acknowledged industry standards are given—as are specifications and notes about usage. Vital information about flammability and life safety factors and accessible barrier-free requirements is also given wherever it is applicable.

To facilitate quick access, the book is organized in three parts, with CSI Masterformat code numbers used throughout. Part one covers standard dimensions of manufactured interior components, including basic graphic and design elements; architectural millwork and hardware; partitions and doors; windows and skylights; interior finishes, specialties, and equipment; stairs and ramps; and lighting.

The second part deals with residential graphic and design standards, and the third part covers commercial graphic and design standards—public washrooms, commercial offices, banks, retail spaces, health studios, restaurants and bars, hotels and motels, medical and dental offices, libraries, and places of worship.

A complete resource book, Interior Graphic and Design Standards includes lists of industry associations, glossaries of terms, size charts, conversion tables, and practical checklists of steps in the design process. There is an extensive keyword index, giving page references as well as CSI Masterformat code numbers, and a complete alphabetical listing of data sources. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars overrall ok, some teeth marks on binding
overrall in ok condition. had some teeth marks on binding that seller did not add in description but did not effect the overrall quality of the book. the edition did not have the needed scale figures in the drawings and was unaware that there was more than 1 edition type. would have been nice to have more of a description before purchasing. pretty much what was described, since description was brief.

1-0 out of 5 stars This one needs to go permanently out-of-print and be forgotten
This book is out-of-date, poorly written, poorly organized, and a complete waste of one's money, time, and effort.The graphics are inconsistent and poorly done, and it is a nightmare trying to make sense of technical information provided by Ms. Reznikoff.

This reference has been eclipsed in light-years by Maryrose McGowan's book "Interior Design Graphic Standards", which is now considered THE reference book of choice and the Gold Standard in its class. Use your money wisely and opt to purchase McGowan's publication instead of this one.

5-0 out of 5 stars great resource tool
This book is a necessary staple for every Interior Designer's book collection

4-0 out of 5 stars A great reference book for Design Students and Practicing Designers!
I recently purchased this book while taking a Commercial Interior Design course as part of my Interior Design degree.I found the book to be very helpful in many aspects of commercial design and specification.Also, my boss, who is a licensed Interior Designer and has been practicing for about 10 years has a copy of the book that she used while in college; she refers to it as her design reference Bible, haha.Although some of the material (such as codes) may be out of date due to the everchanging laws and standards, overall this book is filled with valuable information.A must-have for all interior designers!

I have purchased this commentary for the last several years and the printed book was easy to read in the standard edition.

All other classes use a different book.This years book from Standard is causing many class members to question why we continue to use the Standard when we can get a readible book of lessons from another provider.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not much new

This book provides the PMI standard for portfolio management. Its a very thin book and can be read within a relative short time.

The book consists of 3 chapters and 4 appendixes. The first chapter is a short introduction to the idea of portfolio management, the second chapter explains the role of portfolio management in the organization. The third chapter is the actual standard.

The actual standard consists of 2 processes: Aligning and monitoring and controlling. Aligning consists of a bunch os sub-processes which basically boil down to "make a list of your projects and select which ones you support". The monitoring process is even simpler. The standard itself is just about 25 pages.

The appendixes are not interesting at all. It contains some tools and some history of the standard.

The standard is written somewhat boring (as most standards) and it also does not provide much new insights. If you know a little about portfolio management, then you probably know everything there is in this book.

This is not really worth reading. If you want to know more about portfolio management, you probably want to look at some other book.

4-0 out of 5 stars PMI Standard for Portfolio Management
The Standard gives a good an concise guidance on how to handle Portfolio management. It's very practical to apply.
It did not provide real new insights, though.

Amazon asked me to review my recent purchases.I bought this Bible at the request of a young man in Pakistan named Basim. A year ago he wrote to me asking me to send him a Bible. I sent him the Good News edition.He read it. This year he wrote to me asking for a more scholarly Bible. My favorite is the NRSV Annotated. It's a good book. ;)

Product Description

The New Interpreter’s Study Bible brings the best of biblical scholarship to the service of the Church. In this new study Bible, based on The New Revised Standard Version of the Bible with Apocrypha, sixty distinguished scholars have provided background and insight on the biblical text. Features of this valuable new study Bible include extensive historical and theological annotations on the biblical text; brief introductions and outlines for each biblical book; excursuses giving further background and insight regarding particular themes and passages; and nineteen newly commissioned maps detailing the biblical world at various historical periods.

Available in leather #0687278317 and on CD-Rom #068702496X.

"Here are superb introductory essays and excellent notes on the biblical texts. The New Interpreter's Study Bible is a first-rate aid for all who desire a serious, scholarly encounter with scripture."

- Marion L Soards, Professor of New Testament Studies, Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary

"Of the current editions of Study Bibles, in my opinion the most helpful for pastors, teachers, and all students of the Scriptures has now been issued by Abingdon Press under the dedicated guidance of Dr. Walter Harrelson."

          - Bruce M. Metzger, Professor of New Testament, Emeritus, Princeton Theological Seminary

"The combination of theological reflection, scriptural scholarship, and the practical engagement of life and faith found in the NISB will provide a dependable and rich resource for communicators, students and other spiritual leaders."

          - Rob Weber, Senior Pastor, Grace Community Church, Shreveport, Louisiana.

"I would like to put this in the hands of every teacher. I have long searched for a simply written study Bible that engages our thoughts and also stimulates personal spiritual growth. I became engrossed in it and was reluctant to put it aside."

         - Delia Halverson, Christian Education and Curriculum Specialist, Faith Discovery Ministries


The feature of the NISB that got me to switch from two other study Bibles is the self-pronouncing text. I know of no other study Bible, from any publisher, that provides that benefit to the reader--especially important to those who read the Scriptures aloud to others....it adds so much to the ease of reading all those difficult personal and place names!

          -Reverend William C. B. Lowe; Camarillo, California

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Bible
This is an awesome Bible. Full of footnotes and concordance. Maps are colorful and the book itself is in such detail, easy to understand and great for studying. I have searhed many a time for a great Bible as this one, but never found one, until now. Highly recommend especially for Pastors.

5-0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I had hoped.
Contents were even better than I had hoped.
Package arrived promptly and was well packaged.

5-0 out of 5 stars So easy to read
I just received the NISB and I must begin with the fact that I haven't read but a few verses. However, I have so far found it an amazingly easy Bible to read. The two-column format, with nothing separating the columns, makes it clean and clear. Even though the font is the same size as other Bibles, it just seems bigger somehow because of the clarity of the lay-out. So far, it's one of my favorites. I'll report back after I've explored it a little more.

5-0 out of 5 stars Walking the Gospel
Being involved with leading Bible Study on my church, I asked my pastor what study Bible he would recommend. He suggested The New Interpreter's Study Bible, New Revised Standard Version with The Apocrypha. I had used his Interpreter's Concordance in preparing for my classes, and it was very thorough in explaining the scripture. I thought The New Interpreter's Study Bible would be helpful in my preparation. So far so good.

4-0 out of 5 stars Its strength is its weakness
I've read Luke, John, Acts, and Romans and I think I'm ready to share my impressions..

The NRSV is an excellent translation, though not appreciably better than the old RSV from the 1950s.The language has been made politically correct - er, I mean "inclusive" - but it is still indicated in footnotes where the original language had "brothers" or "men" which the translators have genericized into "friends" or "believers."I have never been able to appreciate the concern over "inclusive" language but apparently it's important to some people.I don't care either way as long as the text isn't severely tampered-with.

Along with the text of the NRSV, this Study Bible contains an extensive commentary, running along on the bottom half of the page.Sometimes the commentary is less than half of the page, sometimes it is more, but the average is about half ... so this book is at least 50% commentary.Good; that's what I wanted.Except this commentary isn't always of a quality that I would have hoped for.I have an old Oxford Annotated Bible and I felt that the notes there were not thorough enough.They told me stuff I wanted to know, but I wanted more.With the Interpreter's I feel like I could get by with less.Too much time is spent reiterating the text, and little or no comment is given to many passages that need examination since they are cryptic, puzzling, or apparently contradictory.I want more historical and textual information, and the Interpreter's commentary seems mostly to be from a doctrinal and theological standpoint.This sort of explication was extremely helpful in the murky diatribes and theological arguments of the letter to the Romans, but not so useful in Luke and Acts.

My biggest complaint is that the Interpreter's misses a lot of citations for Old Testament quotes in the New Testament.Paul in particular is proof-texting like mad in his letters (and he's quoting from the Septuagint so the quoted passages won't even MATCH the Old Testament in the Bible you're reading him from...)Anyway .. in the Oxford Annotated, they were really on top of that, providing chapter and verse for every bit of OT quoted in the NT.The Interpreters provides some references, but not all .. and it's frustrating because I want to go look at these verses in context so I can see where Paul is getting his stuff.I wanted to have everything in one volume, but I find I still have to reach for my Oxford Annotated quite frequently because the information is just NOT in the Interpreter's.

There were also a few errors in the lettering of the footnotes (not matching correctly to the lines they are supposed to note) but the astute reader will be able to puzzle that out.

Physically, the book is unwieldy.It's too big to carry around, and the pages are so thin I'm almost afraid to touch them.(The book has 2300 pages but it's only 2 inches thick, if that tells you anything.)Not really what I'd call a "portable" volume.At least it's bound with stitched signatures instead of glue, so it should last a long time.There is a significant amount of show-through on the pages which is unfortunate because the designer opted to separate the commentary from the text with a thin ruled line, which often appears to be striking out a line of text on the other side of the page.You could probably guess from the blandness of the cover design that the page layout is functional but not pretty: two columns, narrow margins, the commentary set perhaps a point smaller, darker and more tightly leaded than the text.

Still, this is a pretty good study Bible, and I'm glad to have it.The commentary is massive and much more THOROUGH than any other I've seen .. but because of what it still lacks despite its size, and the physical awkwardness of the book itself, I cannot award a full five stars. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Read!
Excellent sequel.I was a little put off that it picks up eighty years after the first but soon got over it.Many of the plot elements from the first didn't carry over, but the sequel soon establishes itself in its own right.I love the character development, dialogue and historical precision of the sequel and can't wait for number three to come out on Kindle.

4-0 out of 5 stars A good long read
This is a well written story. It follows the previous book and involves a descendant of the main character in the first book. The new main character goes from an estate in France to the middle east and moves up from being a simple ignorant knight to an educated Templar. The story has side tracks that go into detail about Richard the Lion Heart and his family as well as the inhabitants of the middle east.
I enjoyed reading this book and I would recommend it for people that want to know about the crusades and the Templar's.

The Time-Saver Standards for Landscape Architecture is large and heavy; however, it provides an overview of Landscape Architectural standards.I purchased mine as a LA student for class, which I believe to be where the book is best suited as a reference and introduction to the profession demonstrationing how plant and hardscape details are created, design and construction process of a landscape design, and description of design elements (paving, water, light, vegetation, ect).I've found the book helpful with my studying for the LARE (Landscape Architectural Registration Exam) as well.

Excellent book, price and sender. Book was as advertised and I would highly recommend buying from this seller.

4-0 out of 5 stars If the price is right, it's perfect for students.
Through 3 years I had this book while in school, it was an invaluable resource. As many of you know, the work done in arch. school is very design/idea based, and not necessarily rooted in a feasible final product. However, I strived to include as many true-to-life elements in my design, and this book got it done for me. Many standards and sizes, etc. that had my classmates scrambling around on the internet or looking through dozens of books to find were easily found in the index of this book. It eventually became a class resource for a couple semesters until people bought their own.

As a professional, many people's firms have a specialty or three. For instance, I work for a healthcare firm at the moment. However, as a student, you can run the whole gamut of different building types. Despite how far-out some of my designs were, the fact that they were rooted in current, workable building methods and systems that were detailed out helped me immensely when applying for jobs. Knowing the details and showing them in your design is not only good for your reputation, but good for ability as an architect.

I'd recommend this to many arch students if the price is right for you. I happened upon it at a time with the book (no CD) was around $80 or $90. Of the dozens of textbooks I still have, this is one resource book I know I'll be consulting for a while.

4-0 out of 5 stars One thing missing...
A must-have book, but the illustration shows "CD included" on the cover in the upper right hand corner. The copy I received did not have that on the cover - and did not have the CD either. Fortunately, I don't have much use for the CD.

5-0 out of 5 stars Finding what you need
I ordered this item thinking it was the paperback book that came with a dvd of the same book free like the Standard Catalog of World Coins 1900 to present I had ordered just weeks before. Even though it was not what I though I had ordered I am happy with the product and it works very well. The features are easy to understand and use and it takes up very little space how ever I find I am using a bit of my time looking for it becouse it has gotten in with music CD's or movies. I will be ordering the Book as soon as it comes up for sale as it is a lot less bother to take the book when I price coins away from home then it is to take my laptop or find a PC to use the DVD.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excelent tool
for anyone that needs information on world coins.It is by far not complete, but does have pretty much anything you need. ... Read more
