Not so good!
I'd have to agree with the other negative review, he lost me in chapter 5, the book goes downhill from that section forward.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
There's too many typographical errors in the code examples in the book, it's terrible for a beginner to try out the examples only to see they don't work.
While the code examples downloaded from the book website are almost all correct, the errors in the text detract from the book's effectiveness as once you've hit a few, the remaining examples can't be trusted.
There's too many "Notes" sections that provide more information than a beginner needs, the author needs to get down off the soapbox and get down to the code!
I ditched this book in favor of the Wrox book!
