  • Web Concept and Design
    by Crystal Waters. This book looks broadly at web site design and development. Covering evberything from layout ideology to color usage, this book provides excellent guides for any web developer. By the way, this is much more theoretical than hands on. There are not cool graphics techniques in this book...instead, the book focuses on the planning and design that happens before the graphics are actually created.
  • Creating Killer Web Sites
    Another excellent design focussed book. I have actually used some of these templates for my own pages. The advice offered here is very good. Unlike "Web Concept and Design" however, this book actually walks you through the development of the graphics.
  • Deconstruc ting Web Graphics
    by Lynda Weinmann. However, this is definitely one of the more advanced design cocept books out there so be ready to sit down with it for awhile. The book actually walks you backwards through the development of some very interesting sample sites.

The big advantage of this volume is that it was collaboratively written by 20 agent researchers representing many implementations and ideological biases. Contains brief but good overviews of the potential use of Java, Tcl/Tk and Telescript in the creation of Internet agents, as well as a CD-ROM for NT, Windows, and Win95 containing Java and Tcl/Tk.

Recommended Programming Books
  • Programming in ANSI C by Stephen G. Kochan
    Whenever I have to do something in C, this is the book I use as refernce. Well written and not a chore to decrypt. Published by Hayden Books
  • The C Programming Language : ANSI C Version - Most of the C & Unix Gurus learned C from this book. This book is concise and powerful -- like C itself. And it was written by Kernighan himself. All real C programmers should have this K&R book ! ; Brian W. Kernighan, Dennis M. Ritchie;
  • The C++ Programming Language - This book is an essential addition to a C++ programmer's library. The author invented the language! It is not for dummies, and it wouldn't be my first choice for an entry-level, self-help tutorial on C++ for beginning programmers ; Bjarne Stroustrup;
  • Data Structures, Algorithms, and Software Principles in C by Thomas A. Standish
    If you have not gone to school to learn computer programming, I recommend you get this and read it. It represents the 101 course you missed and is written well enough that you don't need a professor to explain it.
  • Recursive Algorithms by Richard Lorentz
    If you have finished the Standish book above, you should get this book next. This is a more high level discussion of recursion and data structures used in recursion. To iterate is mortal. To recurse is divine.
  • Mastering Regular Expressions by Jeffrey E. F. Friedl
    Once you are comfortable with the syntax of Perl, it is time for you to begin to utilize the true power. Regular expressions are perhaps the most important topic to master within the Perl CGI universe. This book has it all.

    Excellent UNIX manual for CGI Programmers since this book contains good explainations of all the commands as well as great discussions of permissions and sed and awk, two invaluable tools for doing major HTML template rennovations). Published by ORA.
