The Internet Glossary and Quick Reference Guide
Alan Freedman, et al

Book Review
Computer lingo seems to be expanding about as fast as the Internet itself. The authors of this book provide an aid for those at risk of getting lost in the language. That includes everybody with a nontechnical background who suddenly has to do more than simply log on and check e-mail.

Those who find they must deal with their company's Internet sites or in-house intranets will find this work invaluable in communicating with technical people, whether on their own staff or from vendors. This is quite helpful when it's important to know that the techie talking about ATM isn't discussing getting money from the automated teller machine but making data move across the network in Asynchronous Transfer Mode.

But Freedman and the Glossbrenners do more than provide definitions of the terms an Internet user or administrator is...

Visual Effects in A Digital World: A Comprehensive Glossary of over 7,000 Visual Effects Terms (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Computer Graphics)
Karen Goulekas
August 22, 2001
Book Review
If you call yourself a computer graphics professional but aren't sure of the meaning of cukaloris, Lambertian reflection, or umbra, you might want to pick up a copy of Visual Effects in a Digital World: A Comprehensive Glossary of over 7,000 Visual Effects Terms. Educational, fun, and historically fascinating, this is one of those books that every pixel monkey should have on his or her shelf.

If you've ever wondered what, exactly, rotoscope means (it has three different meanings) or what to eat with a "metaball," this book is for you. Chock full of interesting tidbits and a 32-page color gallery of examples, this is probably one of the more interesting technical dictionaries you'll ever have the pleasure of looking through.

Perhaps you know the difference between an array and an Arri, but...

Every Manager's Guide to Information Technology: A Glossary of Key Terms and Concepts for Today's Business Leader
Peter G. W. Keen

From Library Journal
The author indicates that CEOs need an understanding of the essentials of information technology (IT), and the terms in this guide are certainly selective. However, most business managers attempting to get a handle on specific concepts for his/her area will be disconcerted by the "discussion" method employed here rather than a straightforward definition of terms and concepts. The reader would have to have some knowledge of IT to use even those terms that were defined. Not recommended.- V.A. Munch, Montville Twp . P.L., Copyright 1991 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Digital Photographic Imaging Glossary
Phil Taylor
February 2002
Book Description
Digital photography can be a simple undertaking or very complex if you allow it to be. My choice was to refer to as many sources of information as were available. Along with courses, tutorials and other forums, this glossary is an ideal companion as you venture into this new field of photography and imaging. The terminology associated with digital imaging is used in a variety of fields to express similar concepts. To prevent misunderstandings it is essential to clarify concepts and establish definitions - definitions that are thorough, uncomplicated and easily understood. This book does not replace your user manual for your software or hardware. This glossary does not contain (commercial) software related terminology. This is appropriate as it simplifies things into two distinct categories: your manuals and this...

Carrier Grade Voice over IP
Daniel Collins
September 2002
Book Description
In 2002 voice over IP will constitute more than 25% of all long distance voice calls, according to Network World. That's more than a 30% ramp-up from 2001. The emergence of SIP, MPLS and new quality of service tools is making carrier grade voice over IP a service reality, and a potentially huge margin booster and revenue driver for service providers.The first edition of Carrier Grade Voice over IP played a roll in VoIP growth, in less than year becoming an essential tool for carriers working to provide high quality IP telephony. This new edition vastly updates the SIP chapter, details MPLS, and takes the explanations of the previous edition a step further in a final chapter that shows, step by step, how to design working VoIP networks.

Who Moved My Soap : The CEO's Guide to Surviving in Prison
Andy Borowitz
June 2003
From Publishers Weekly
New Yorker and NPR humorist Borowitz, author of the stock-market populism spoof The Trillionaire Next Door, sends up both corporate criminals and business literature in this rather funny book. With tongue firmly in cheek, Borowitz distills platitudes from countless business and leadership manuals and applies them to the context of the maximum security penitentiary. All the cliches are there: the leadership slogans (incarcerated CEO's should "be proactive" by starting riots instead of waiting to be made the cellblock bitch); the relentless positive thinking ("you'll emerge from your time in the joint more productive, more innovative, and millions of dollars wealthier than you were on the day the prison guard first checked you for lice"); the self-improvement schemas ("the Seven Habits of Highly Effective...
