Book Review
Jerry Baker is known as America's master gardener--millions of would-be gardeners have warmed to his folksy PBS appearances and made bestsellers out of The Impatient Gardener and The Impatient Gardener's Lawn Book. Like Baker's other books, Flower Power is inexpensive and accordingly short on pretty pictures, but long on good advice, simply presented. For example: In spring, generously apply wood ashes from your fireplace all around your perennials, several inches deep. This will help to enrich the soil. You can also use dried dog food for the same purpose. It contains many of the same nutrients found in organic fertilizers, such as blood meal and bone meal. Flower Power gives no-nonsense directions for growing annuals, perennials, bulb plants, roses, and flowering shrubs and trees, with Baker's enthusiasm...


The Windows 2000 Device Driver Book: A Guide for Programmers (2nd Edition)

Dr. Dobb's Electronic Review of Computer Books
Read the full review for this book. At just over 520 pages, The Windows NT Device Driver Book is half the length and less longwinded than more recent texts. However, it is less complete than more recent books and has been criticized as inaccurate on NT DDK mail lists and (with the advent of Windows 2000 and WDM drivers) out of date. Still, some minor things are covered in this book that are not covered in the current crop of books. This includes using hardware compatibility test suites (the HCT CD-ROMs in the MSDN) as a part of stress testing drivers and using DUMPEXAM as well as WinDbg.exe to read crash dumps.
