Is it just me or do tech books suffer from the most awful titles? They are incredibly long.

Programming Microsoft ASP.NET 2.0 Core Reference
Programming C# : Building .NET Applications with C#
Data Structures and Problem Solving Using Java
Practical Guidelines and Best Practices for Microsoft Visual Basic and Visual C# Developers


I don't see the sense of having "Microsoft ASP.NET" when "ASP.NET" will suffice. Or "Building .NET Applications with C#" when "Building applications with C#" will suffice. It isn't going to be "Building Java Applications with C#" now is it?

I only bring this up as I am listing all the books in the office and my web-app has to truncuate nearly every single book title. And that is before you get into things like 2nd, 3rd, 4th and nth editions.

regards,
Paul Watson
