I got this for the nook, but important sections are unreadable in this ebook format. I had to exchange it for hardcopy which B&N was nice enough to do. The problem was reported to the publisher and maybe it will be fixed sometime. Something to do with special fonts and/or colors used for distinguishing the examples from the text from the syntax. Other than that I recommend it. While technical, it is otherwise well written and understandable.
