Comments from the Editor
==========================================================

For those of you in the United States, I hope you had a fun-filled Independence Day holiday. The Fourth of July is always a lot of fun in the United States when it isn't raining. This year was no exception!

Interested in writing a book review? I listed within the Feedback forum at Codeguru a number of books that are available for review. We'll send you one of these if you are in the United States and if you agree to submit a review. You'll get to keep the book in exchange for submitting. The review should help others at Codeguru know if the book is worth getting or if it should be avoided. The list on the forum isn't necessarily up to date, so feel free to ask me if there are books on a topic you are interested in reviewing.

Until next week...

Brad!
