    Wouldn't bother!

    I've always had my doubts about anything "for Dummies" but I thought I'd try it out.

    At the beginning I thought this is great but that fast fizzled out because there wasn't concrete examples for completing the more common task, then I just set the book aside and went on my own and I was able to make sense of it myself.

    I feel cheated for the $ I paid on the book but at least I can give concrete examples to other people who ask of my opinion. It doesn't even deserve 1 star as I am forced to render in this e-mail.

    Thanks but no thanks.
