I have the Manning book and I love it. The only problem with the book is that my team keep
swiping it, so whenever I want to look something up, I have to first hunt it down and retreive
it. My copy is now very dog-ear'd and collecting coffee stains ... always a good indicator
of a quality technical book. (I think my copy of K&R is the only book I have with more
coffee stains on it at this time :-).
