| My personal review of this book
|This may be of great interest to many of the readers on the SQR Users
Group... There have been quite a few inquiries about SQR books on the market...
You'll find an excellent SQR book at www.manning.com (Manning Publications Co.) entitled
'SQR in PeopleSoft and Other Applications' by Galina and Vlad Landres... I had the honor
(and pleasure) of reviewing the book... It is very solid and will definitely benefit the
SQR community as a whole... It seems to cover "all areas" of SQR development
including Internet, Graphics and Printing Topics... as well as arrays, functions, I/O,
decision logic, SQL, commands, syntax, etc... Although the book has 'PeopleSoft' in the
title its' Main Focus is SQR programming in general... Think of the PeopleSoft chapters as
an added bonus! (That's one of the things I really liked about the book - it doesn't stop
at the basics)... The PeopleSoft chapters explain the ins/outs of Menus, Run Controls
(Records/Panels), Process Scheduler, Process Monitor, Effective Date Processing,
Interfaces, Conversion... You can find information on the book (including table of
contents) at http://www.manning.com/Landres/index.html (the book cover may change though -
something a little more 'high energy' would be appropriate)... I could tell in my review a
great deal of time and careful planning went into writing this... I'm especially pleased
because I've recently had the opportunity to work with Galina at a "mutual"
client and it's been a very positive and rewarding experience... She's very knowledgable,
professional and very enthusiastic about her work! New and experienced SQR developers will
be very happy with this book! -Tony DeLia
||This is the original Book Cover for SQR In PeopleSoft and Other
Applications. Galina and Vlad were not too pleased with the publishers selection. Manning
now uses 17th century characters for all of their book covers. The new cover (above) is
slightly better than this one. Not in terms of art work though - They're beautiful
illustrations. But they have little relevence to SQR development.

||As mentioned, Galina and Vlad were negotiating with the publisher over the
cover of their book. If an appropriate cover wasn't found I offered one I created myself.
This is my "crayola" version of a Tarkay painting I like. It shows two SQR
developers waiting patiently for Barnes and Noble to open their doors. They both are
picking up a few copies of 'SQR in PeopleSoft and other Applications' - and probably some
