Books We Recommend

The books shown below are titles that we have found useful and ones that we often recommend.  They are by some of the best authors in these areas (shamelessly, including us).  Many of the titles are authored by people that make their living actually using the product - professional developers, rather than professional authors.

Each book includes a link that will take you to an online merchant, where you can find a full description of the book (often including reviews and reader comments).  In the interest of Full Disclosure, please note that the link indicates that you have come from our site and we will receive a small referral fee if you make a purchase.  We do not pass along any information about you.  Please see our privacy statement if you have any questions.
