Head First by O'Reilly

Browsing the dwindling collection of books at Borders, I discovered an interesting "new" book series. It's called "Head First". Published by O'Reilly (which specializes in computer-related titles), it should be the new "For Dummies" series for the brightest and the busiest of us. Unlike the "For Dummies" series (which has significantly improved recently), the "Head First" series does not try to dumb the content down. On the contrary, it uses visuals, stories, activities and challenges to present the content while keeping your brain engaged.

Somehow, the series has been out since 2004, but has not gotten my attention until now. On top of programming-related books, they offer math-related titles. Don't be embarrased anymore when trying to help your child with homework. Grab a Head First title and show them that you know what you are talking about.
