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


Yesterday was a holiday for those of us here at Codeguru. As such, today we
are catching up. Rather than writing a long editorial this week, I’ll simply
post a couple of extra items in the list of recently published books below! If
you’ve read any of these books, feel free to submit a review to the Codeguru
book review page.


Until next week…


Brad!
