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!
