Microsoft Internet Explorer 4 at a Glance by Inc. Perspection.       This reference can be categorized as something between a manual and a cheat sheet. Microsoft Internet Explorer at a Glance is not meant to be exhaustive, but rather it is meant to make the reader as proficient as possible in Microsoft Internet Explorer (MSIE) in as little time as possible. The authors take a highly visual approach, showing sample screens for all applications and marking the on-screen information and controls in numerical order for each step of the task. Brief yet cogent text explains each step. Microsoft Internet Explorer At a Glance ignores technical jargon and often fills page borders with useful time-saving tips. The book's topics include Web browsing, finding information online, managing information, personalizing your software, adding new functions, coping with e-mail that uses Outlook Express News, communicating with NetMeeting, creating and enhancing Web pages, and working with Internet Explorer tools.

Creating Killer Web Sites, Second Edition by David S. Siegel.       David Siegel's classic guide to good taste in Web design has been completely overhauled in this second edition. Every chapter has been reworked, repurposed, and rewritten with over 100 new pages and 150 new illustrations, new information on 4.0 browser design, and a comprehensive guide to Style Sheet implementations for both Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer. Those who enjoyed Creating Killer Web Sites the first time around will doubtlessly benefit from this new edition, which is meant as a continuation of the first book rather than a simple update. At the same time, anyone who has never read the first edition will be able to pick up this new edition without having missed a beat. Siegel's accompanying Web site (www.killersites.com) contains supplemental information as well as chapters from the first edition that didn't make the 2.0 cut.

Visual Explanations by Edward R. Tufte.       The author's newest book is both intellectually stimulating and beautiful to behold. Tufte, a self-publisher, takes extraordinary pains with design and production. The book ranges through a variety of topics, including the explosion of the space shuttle Challenger (which could have been prevented, Tufte argues, by better information display on the part of the rocket's engineers), magic tricks, a cholera epidemic in 19th-century London, and the principle of using "the smallest effective difference" to display distinctions in data. Throughout, Tufte presents ideas with crystalline clarity and illustrates them in exquisitely rendered samples.

The Visual Display of Quantitative Information by Edward R. Tufte.       A timeless classic in how complex information should be presented graphically. The Strunk & White of visual design. Should occupy a place of honor--within arm's reach--of everyone attempting to understand or depict numerical data graphically. The design of the book is an exemplar of the principles it espouses: elegant typography and layout, and seamless integration of lucid text and perfectly chosen graphical examples. Very Highly Recommended.
