    Before Prentice Hall got involved it was probably awesome

    As an IT professional, I really hate to see a book layout butchered like this. The authors are highly knowledgeable and skilled with the tool. Too bad the book designers had absolutely no idea how to layout a serious IT book.<BR/><BR/>Prior to chapter 3, this book is greatly miss-leading. They actually printed all of the code so seasoned IT professionals can go through the process of learning by re-keying, then fixing all of their keying errors. Yes, there are lazy bastards out there who won't even bother to compile the code, but anyone who bought the book to actually learn from it is going to be viciously shorted when they hit chapter 3. Most of the source code display switches to 5 line snippets with ... around it once you hit that chapter. The learning ceases.<BR/><BR/>Yes, Prentice Hall provided a Web site where you can download the code. So what? A major portion of the learning process for most IT professionals is being able to see the entire program or source file WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF THE DISCUSSION. They re-key it into their computers, fix their typos, and the discussion hits home. It is part of a tried and true learning process in place since the early 1980's. There is no "learning" occurring from 5 line snippets, that is "reference" display.<BR/><BR/>I wouldn't be so hard on this book if the title said it was meant to be a reference for experts. The title is focused on learning and the design department at Prentice Hall screwed the pooch.
