    First chapter.

    The author recommends firefox as a search engine. This firefox is full of malware and vendors of all kinds. Just trash my computer, so by the time I clean it I will be an expert, guess. Probably is another exercise for dummies or beginner like me.

    Great, but not superior

    A hard language to learn. If you are a person who either:
    1. Has time to learn
    OR:
    2. Is under 15 and am a beginner,
    Then THIS BOOK IS NOT RIGHT FOR YOU.
    If over 15, am an experienced programmer, and as time to learn, buy it.
