Best Book Bytes

Best Book Bytes -- We're lousy at blowing our own horns, but we thought we'd mention several books written by TidBITS staff members garnered prizes in's third annual Book Bytes Awards. Contributing Editor Matt Neuburg's REALbasic: The Definitive Guide was selected as Best Programming Book, while Adam Engst's Crossing Platforms: A Macintosh-Windows Phrasebook (co-authored with David Pogue) was selected as the Best Mac-Win Book under $30. Not to be outdone, Managing Editor Jeff Carlson pulled in two awards: one for his Palm Organizers Visual QuickStart Guide and another for Real World Adobe Golive 4, which he co-authored with TidBITS contributor (and former NetBITS editor) Glenn Fleishman. (They recently published an updated edition for GoLive 5.) These books and others by the TidBITS staff are linked from our BookBITS page. [GD]
