    Editorial Review

    Because it's very popular among Internet service providers(ISPs), FreeBSD is likely the Unix flavor you work with when you Telnetinto the server that hosts a Web site. For that reason, it's worthhaving FreeBSD Unleashed around if you frequently need to log into various hosted environments but don't do your day-to-day work on aFreeBSD computer. If you're running FreeBSD on your own machine--andmore than a few Linux critics say you should be--you'll get even moreout of this book, particularly if you prefer to have your referencematerials on paper. It's a good idea to have them that way when you'rehaving problems getting FreeBSD to connect to the Internet, afterall.

    This book explains, succinctly, how to do basic utilitarianstuff like moving files and creating users, and advanced utilitarianstuff like "building the world" from raw source. Further, the authorsexplain Unix concepts (like the shell and its relationship to thekernel) clearly and in ample detail. Michael Urban and Brian Tiemannalso go beyond FreeBSD itself, explaining such concepts as wide areanetworks (WANs) and basic, environment-neutral Perl programming.Whether these inclusions are valuable extras or extraneous paddingdepends upon your perspective, but there's no doubt that the authorsmaintain a high quality standard throughout their documentation ofFreeBSD and its allied technologies. --David Wall

    Topics covered: Using and enjoying the FreeBSD flavor of Unix,with emphasis on versions 4.4 and 5.0. Instructions andexplanations--all rather detailed--appear on installing the operatingsystem, configuring groups and users, setting up daemons (includingthose for network services like mail), and connecting to othercomputers (as well as the Internet). Installable copies of FreeBSD 4.4and 5.0 ship with this book. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very thorough coverage compared to other FreeBSD books
    I have found the topics covered in this book very useful. Most of the common applications are covered: Apache, Bind, DHCP, FTP,MySQL/Postgre, VPN, etc. While not an advanced book, the coverage is thorough. I run each of the apps listed above except for VPN and I used this book to install/config each app.

    This book has taught me not only about FreeBSD, but also the FreeBSD way to doing things like the strict use of the filesystem and installing all apps under /usr/local. I have not mastered any of the topics written about in this book, but after reading this book I understand a great deal more about them. For example, the differences in the startup scripts between Linux and FreeBSD and how applications are installed with ports and packages compared to APT-GET and RPM.

    Finally, I enjoyed the fact that the writing style was not cut and dry or overly humorous and drawn out.

    Great book that, once read, becomes a great reference.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Generaly good, but with many unnessary chapters included.
    I think it is very good introductory book for freebsd expect the fact that there is a great amount of pages spent on the X windows system and its utilities. My opinion is that the title 'unleased' doesn't feet with aspects such as 'how to start mozilla and print' , 'gnome' , etc.I can understand the need of presenting the X window system as an important piece of the whole presentation of freebsd but I think that reference was too long to focus with. So , only for the freebsd-related staff that help me a lot I put 5 starts, and as for the complete book I put 3 stars. If those "lost" pages where filled with useful content and secrets about freebsd I would definitly put 5 stars.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best book ever writeen for FreeBSD.
    I have been using FreeBSD for about 2 years now, I have about 7 different books in my shell. I have to tell you the truth, this is the best, detail, organized, professional book I have ever read of freeBSD, not even the handbook give you so much detail as this book. If you are a begineer and want to really learn this OS, but this book. It is the best you can get. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars One of the good books with great examples
    This book covers a large number of j2ee apis in a coherent manner. It is a good reference book for every day use.
    Someparts of the book out dated with respected to technologies progress from it's publishing. The real life examples with oracle, weblogic, j2ee RI server is great help.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Favorite J2EE book
    This is my reference book that I liked most for J2EE. It describes all of the J2EE parts in alot of detail. It is different by having UML diagrams that describe each J2EE part then the author describes the J2EE part that the diagram shows. This makes it easy to understand that J2EE part. Also has code examples to run and in the book. Every J2EE part is covered like EJb, sevlets, Web services, JAXR, JMS, and on. They are able to cover this because the book is biggest one I have with almost 1500 pages. It is organized too. Parts are described in all in good sequence.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Not for beginers!
    This book fails to actually teach anything. The author goes into long drawn out paragraphs and fails to say much. If you don't know J2EE, stay away from this book! If you are not great at J2EE and want to get better, don't buy this book! Only buy this if you want a refrence book, but it's not even good for that, IMO. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars Mark's Standard Handbook for Mechanical Engineers
    I have a slightly older copy and I have found that for the PE exam this is a good reference however, if you are doing something in the real world, the Machinery's Handbook is FAR better.This book gives good overviews of a huge variety of topics that any Mech Engr might need but not much depth.It is about as much information as a manager might want to know.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Mark's ME Handbook on CD
    I was very disappointed in the CD version of Mark's Handbook.While I am a user of Mark's handbook for over 30 years, the CD version is not friendly.The ability to search for subjects is next to non-existent.

    I asked to return the CD book and was told because in was opened (I broke the seal, of course, to inspect it), it was not returnable.

    Be careful in buying CD books... there is a no return policy.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Better than Roark's Formulas for stress & strain.
    This book has a lot of information most of which is useless calculus integration with vary brief summery which seems to me being derived from other books just thrown into the mix with general categories. The book is basically an oversized machinery's handbook but with a poorly written index and with a lot of inapt formulas that don't have a explanation for formula variables used in the equation.If you do a lot of strength of material design I would suggest a machinery's hand book, or the McGraw Hill Mechanical Engineering Design book which is an excellent P.E. exam reference book. Stay away from the Roarks Formulas for stress & strain book its more poorly written then the Marks. ... Read more
