    Excellent Book!

    I have only read part of the book and alreadly my (rather basic) coding abilities have improved tenfold. Information is presented clearly and the examples are instrucive and useful. The companion website with longer examples is a great resource as well.

    I recommend this book to anyone wanting to move beyond the basics.
