I started reading Networking for Dummies by Doug Lowe and found it to be an excellent starting point for the just starting networker but a little too basic for me.

Cisco Networking for Dummies is just what I needed; something more advanced than the basics, but not something that would go over my head. It takes you through some of the basics found in Lowe’s book (if you need a brush up) and propels you into the world of frames, packets, Cisco device types, protocols, VLANs, and so much more. Very big book, but VERY helpful to get you going on that second step to networking.

I chose this rating because this is what I needed to advance in my career. This book provides the basics. I’m trying to get certified in Cisco and it helps.

Solid state physics by Neil W. Ashcroft, N. David Mermin free download

Solid state physics by Neil W. Ashcroft, N. David Mermin free download

Description:

This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the field of solid state physics for undergraduate students in physics, chemistry, engineering, and materials science.

Ashcroft and Mermin is an “amplified” version of basic solid state book! Must have!
This book offers an excellent, step-by-step introduction to crucial concepts of solid-state physics. I think, the authors have nicely avoided “reasoning surprises” that usually bother novice readers. To read this book smoothly, certainly you need “Physics 101” background; but other than that, the book seems to be self-contained. But don’t be surprised if the problems are quite challenging (some are tough)!
The development of solid-state physics is presented in a more historical fashion–in opposition to rigid, systematic, definitive, and (sometimes) boring way that is commonly adopted by many other solid-state books.
In my opinion (hopefully wrong), this book has some shortcomings:
(1) detailed technical aspects, e.g. in XRD–you must refer to other technical books if you want to delve into them.
(2) links to interesting, research-related topics in modern solid state physics.
(3) new editions since the first release (how come?? Solid state physics has grown rapidly!).
These are probably due to the the introductory nature of this book. But it is good if there is a future revision, with point (2) above added in it, at least in the form of problems.

Streaming, Sharing, Stealing: Big Data and the Future of Entertainment by Michael D. Smith, Rahul Telang pdf free download

Description:

<B>”[The authors explain] gently yet firmly exactly how the internet threatens established ways and what can and cannot be done about it. Their book should be required for anyone who wishes to believe that nothing much has changed.”</B><B> — The Wall Street Journal</B><B>”Packed with examples, from the nimble-footed who reacted quickly to adapt their businesses, to laggards who lost empires.”</B><B> — Financial Times</B>Traditional network television programming has always followed the same script: executives approve a pilot, order a trial number of episodes, and broadcast them, expecting viewers to watch a given show on their television sets at the same time every week. But then came Netflix’s House of Cards. Netflix gauged the show’s potential from data it had gathered about subscribers’ preferences, ordered two seasons without seeing a pilot, and uploaded the first thirteen episodes all at once for viewers to watch whenever they wanted on the devices of their choice. In this book, Michael Smith and Rahul Telang, experts on entertainment analytics, show how the success of House of Cards upended the film and TV industries — and how companies like Amazon and Apple are changing the rules in other entertainment industries, notably publishing and music. We’re living through a period of unprecedented technological disruption in the entertainment industries. Just about everything is affected: pricing, production, distribution, piracy. Smith and Telang discuss niche products and the long tail, product differentiation, price discrimination, and incentives for users not to steal content. To survive and succeed, businesses have to adapt rapidly and creatively. Smith and Telang explain how.How can companies discover who their customers are, what they want, and how much they are willing to pay for it? Data. The entertainment industries, must learn to play a little “moneyball.” The bottom line: follow the data.

Review

Streaming, Sharing, Stealing is a must-read for anyone wanting to understand how technology is reshaping the entertainment industries.

Digital Design: A Systems Approach by William J. Dally, R. Curtis Harting pdf free download

Digital Design: A Systems Approach by William J. Dally, R. Curtis Harting pdf free download

Description:

This introductory textbook provides students with a system-level perspective and the tools they need to understand, analyze and design digital systems. Going beyond the design of simple combinational and sequential modules, it shows how such modules are used to build complete systems, reflecting real-world digital design. All the essential topics are covered, including design and analysis of combinational and sequential modules, as well as system timing and synchronization. It also teaches how to write Verilog HDL in a productive and maintainable style that enables CAD tools to do much of the tedious work. A complete introduction to digital design is given through clear explanations, extensive examples and online Verilog files. The teaching package is completed with lecture slides, labs and a solutions manual for instructors. Assuming no previous digital knowledge, this textbook is ideal for undergraduate digital design courses that will prepare students for modern digital practice. “Dally and Harting blend circuit and architecture design in a clear and constructive manner on the basis of their exceptional experience in digital design. Students will discover a modern and effective way to understand the fundamental underpinning of digital design, by being exposed to the different abstraction levels and views of computing systems.” – Giovanni De Micheli, EPFL Switzerland “Bill and Curt have combined decades of academic and industry experience to produce a textbook that teaches digital system design from a very practical perspective without sacrificing the theoretical understanding needed to train tomorrow’s engineers. Their approach pushes students to understand not just what they are designing but also what they are building. By presenting key advanced topics, such as synthesis, delay and logical effort, and synchronization, at the introductory level, this book is in the rare position of providing both practical advice and deep understanding. In doing so, this book will prepare students well even as technology, tools, and techniques change in the future.” – David Black-Schaffer, Uppsala University
