2Pass this one by.
By Schoe
This book has an enormous amount of redundancy and could easily be reduced in size to 1/4 of its total size by reducing the redundancy. He does not get to the point very quickly and I can only assume this book was written for someone who is totally new to this subject and requires a lot of "leading". I cannot recommend this book.

2Get it cuz you have to not cuz you want to.
By Michael J. Miller
There are many typos, and the author likes to throw out abbreviations and then explain what those abbreviations stand for in paragraphs to come leaving you flipping through previous pages to see if you missed something. They did a pretty bad job putting this book together. I'm half way through and while sure there's useful information it's not set up in a way that makes sense and is digestible.
