    If you've read a book already mentioned in the forum then just add your review as a reply to the thread. Or if you're the first then create a new thread with some details about the book and your review right there.

    Tim Cooke (http://www.coderanch.com/u/168427/Tim-Cooke) has been programming for a living for the best part of a decade, and a lot longer before that just for fun. When he's not writing software for the largest Derivatives Exchange in the World, you can usually find him around the forums with a cup of Tea in hand and his feet up.

    My first bit of advice is that if you are going to be a mime, you shouldn't talk. Even the tiny ad is nodding:
