Buy it if you want to learn C++ and you know nothing of programming. It works! I should know, I used it.
The graphics are fine there big enough
Great written description. Easy to follow. Well designed for beginners. Graphics are too small to be viewable on a Nook Reader. Graphics are unusable which is a shame. Had they be useable, this would have been a perfect entry-level book. Can't recommend it for Nook users.
Very interesting book. Holds my attention. Author explains very well.
I'd love to write a review, but the stupid book won't unlock on the Nook that I used to purchase it.
