    Disappointing Examples

    The book is interesting reading but the examples fall flat. The code examples downloaded from the web won't run right unless you set directories up the same as the author had on his machine and not the way the book says. It took digging into the forums to find out why they were wrong. The book is 'begining' but there are some advanced settings that need to be set to make things work. The daatabase examples have you load the entire Northwind database (but using a different name)for a trivial example using a few columns. The book gets better when you get into the coding but left me wanting!
