How about Head First Accounting?
There's an awful lot of software development applications which involve knowledge of accounting.

I love your books. I almost have them all.
I would really appreciate it if you could do a SharePoint book. For some reason it's structure baffles me and I can't get my head around it.

I'm currently over half way through HF into HTML5 and I've learnt so much. great book!
What I would like to see is a HF book on server-side technologies, web servers and services as its currently a huge gap in my knowledge. If not do you have any good recommendations?

I would like to see "Head First JavaCV".
There is no tutorial/documentation for the JavaCV, which is the Java wrapper for OpencCV. JavaCV is a very powerful technology to do lot of things including accessing web cam, face detection, face recognition and much more. Even JavaCV page at google code doesn't have Java based examples, they have Scala based examples.
Please write a 100% pure Java based book for JavaCV.

When can we expect the release date of Head First - Java Server Faces.
JSF has been with us since 2004.
The specification is huge and we need a good reference book for it to learn it just like the Head First Series.
JSF 2.0 is into play right now with lots of changes (with JSP almost deprecated, use of XHTML, Dependency Injection of managed beans, annotations support, etc, etc) .
The need of the book increases as we have many vendors for JSF 2.0 like PrimeFaces, MyFaces, IceFaces, RichFaces, SpringFaces, etc etc etc.
If we do not have an idea what is JSF 2.0 we will be not able to catch up with the current component based specification like JSF.
I can find only 2 books on JSF 2.0 in the market even after 4 years of its release which is very disappointing.
I own 7 books of Head First Series and i really find it as a best way to learn any technology . A Big Fan of Head First I must say.
Can we expect a Head First Book on Java Server Faces soon ?

I am extremely sorry if people are finding my post very offensive, or presumptuous that the book is definitely going to come up.
There is actually a reason why i have written like that.
I had seen a reply to a post by Bert Bates that he is going to discuss on bringing up a book on JSF in "big Head First meeting", back in April 2007.
This was the reason why i was a bit presumptuous.
I know JSP is used more than JSF, What i was about to convey there was in JSF 2.0 famous blogs like mkyong, baluc say they have stopped using JSP for a application built on JSF. They say instead of .JSP pages .xhtml pages are used. I think deprecated is not the right word to be used . I can re-frame it as "JSP pages are not used in JSF 2.0 application". I am sorry for that.
Please excuse me if I had written anything wrong and I humbly apologize for my previous post.
Is there any news about the book and its release ?

I think a head first scala book would be pretty awsome! it is a language that has hit the ground running, but there is a lack of good tutorials. A head first X86 Asembly (or x86-64) would be pretty cool. something else I would like to see is a few books on game development (maybe LWJGL since java is really what started this whole thing) considering most game programming books are dated.

I think everybody would like these:
1. An update to Head First Java(come on, it is so obsolete)
2. Head First Android (which is a negative sign for head first not to have it when the world is running on Android)
Besides I love Head First. Made my life easy. Thanks

seriously a head first algorithms and data structures should be made ASAP, it is so highly needed!!!
preferable one that would also include some relevant mathematics

I have several Head First books and have loved them all. I have taken programming courses in college, and while I did extrememly well, I have never learned so fast as from a Head First book. You guys rock!
To that end I would like to see a C++ book! The new game engine Unreal 4 was released earlier this year for an astonishingly low price of $20/mo (you can stop anytime and just keep your current updated version). The Unreal 4 Engine has switched to C++ for all of their coding. With this incredibly low access bar there are going to be a *lot* of people wanting to build games, but needing to learn code.
Many of them will look for an intro C++ book and then quit because even "good" programming books are tough.
Head First can change that with a great C++ book. (Especially if that book uses examples for game building...just saying.)
Maybe I shouldn't be doing this. Maybe I should let people flounder, after all, there's less competition for my games! But I can't do that. There are too many folks out there with great ideas, who's only barrier to access now is simply learning to code. I'd want someone to pull for me. So I'm going to pull for them!
C++ would literally fly off of the shelves.

As a long time Head First consumer, I would love to see a "Head First Machine Learning" that is more accessible than the Stanford and MIT offerings using the tried and true Head First Formula and lots of practical examples! This would be an extremely popular entry within the Data Science and predictive analytics community that prides itself in having a high barrier to entry. I look forward to see how O'reilly and Head First respond to this popular request!
