[PLUG] Great book reviews

I don't know why I've never thought to mention this before, but I 
encourage everyone to check out Elizabeth Zwicky et al.'s book reviews 
at every other 
month.  I'm a little hazy on why the current ones are in PDF without a 
quick index anyplace (like the older reviews), but I have learned that 
it is WELL worth the extra step or two to deal with the PDF.

For example, 
is 6 pages and reviews:

software required to protect Windows from its own poorly designed and
implemented self, while the overhead incidentally flattens Moore's Law.
