Short Cuts:

CYBERMEETING by James L. Creighton and James W.R. Adams, AMACOM, New York City, $27.95

Over the next few years, companies will spend billions of dollars to make "CyberMeetings" a reality -- gatherings in which software, not travel, brings people together. And much of that investment will be wasted chasing fads, the authors contend. This 226-page book examines communications technology under development or expected in the near future, and prepares readers for the time when they'll have to choose products for their organizations.

SHOW PLANNERS SECURITY NOTEBOOK by Bram L. Bottfeld, A.I.M. Incorporated, Miami, $29.95

It might not look fancy, but this 92-page notebook offers valuable advice -- specifically geared toward trade show planners -- in a digestible format. The author, a security consultant, draws on his 18 years in the field to address hiring qualified security, handling thefts (and even false theft reports), crowd control and more. No matter how much you think you know about show security, you'll learn something new. (To order, call 305-256-0370.)
