    Tons of valuable content

    I've picked up a ton of info here that has really expanded my knowledge base. I've been looking for a reliable and up to date book for a while and am quite satisfied with this.

    However, I only gave 4 stars because of the length. 640 Pages is rather daunting (grinding) and the repetition (which I believe is intentional, and helpful) can get tedious at times. I believe that there could have been more exercises to help solidify the learned material. There's nothing worse than reading a technical manual only to not get enough practical applications done in the process.
