Computer Bookshelf

What is Computer Bookshelf?

Computer Bookshelf is the personal website of David Powers, an author of several best-selling books on PHP and ActionScript. It was originally intended to house my reviews of web design related books, but pressure of writing and editing my own books got in the way. The site will eventually be redeveloped, but I suggest you visit my main site at, where you can find details of my books, updates, and tutorials.
