I think I was the one that recommended that book. I like it - it's 
readable, understandable, and very useful for dipping into when you're 
interested in one particular task. Good mixture of simple tweaking and 
more advanced stuff. I find this true of the Hacks series in general.
Please tell the list what you thought of it.
