    Purchase a Different Book Unless You Are A Seasoned Programmer

    The book was incredibly difficult to understand, lacked information on topics he considered to be too basic for his time, and contained terms that only seasoned programmers would understand. Ive read a lot of programming books and never have I been so frustrated trying to get useful and complete information out of a book.
