Reviewer: Kumar Appaiah
Slashdot Review: "A positive trait in the presentation of this book is that it is all based on practical everyday examples which, with minor adaptation, can be used by many for their own daily tasks".

Inkscape 0.48 Essentials for Web Designers
Reviewer: Bethany Hiitola
Slashdot Review: "This book makes a nice addition to the online resources available for Inkscape and with its tutorial style is a good contrast to other Inkscape books available which may contain more reference material but are more general in nature."

Blender 3D 2.49 Architecture, Buildings, and Scenery
Reviewer: Terry Wallwork
Slashdot Review: "The book starts by guiding the user through the basic but most important features of Blender, so as to allow a person that has never used Blender to get their feet. To further help with this many pictures are used that for the most part are very clear and really help in getting across how to carryout particular tasks."

NHibernate 3.0 Cookbook
Reviewer: RickJWagner
Slashdot Review: "As far as content goes, there is a lot of useful content in this book. The author presents 70 different recipes for activites that range from the basic (i.e. your first class-to-database mappings) to the unusual (i.e. using NHibernate Spatial for solving distance-related problems.) The author offers plenty of good text in most of these, but again-- don't be upset by the placement of the high-level material. It's all there, it's just placed a little differently than what you'd find in most technical books."

MySQL 5.1 Plugin Development
Reviewer: Michael J. Ross
Slashdot Review: "If you were to ask some database developers to cite their favorite strategies for expanding the functionality of the relational database management systems with which they work, you would probably hear a variety of answers. One individual might recommend the use of an alternate database engine optimized for the given application. Another might explain the many advantages of using stored procedures to replace SQL queries embedded in the source code of any programs that connect to databases. But one answer you likely would not receive involves changing the internals of the database engine itself. With the latest major release of MySQL, developers using that particular RDBMS are now able to extend the capabilities of the built-in database engines, by creating plug-ins. This is the topic of a book by Sergei Golubchik and Andrew Hutchings: MySQL 5.1 Plugin Development."
