Mechanically, the printer should have used more ink. The type face is light, the font is not dark, the book requires a good light source and even then is tiring to read.
This is a class of computer book that should be entitled "all I know about ..." The book is not exhaustive in its coverage. There are conditions that occur that the book does not address. Further, the author sometimes tells how to do something, without telling how to undo something. The prose is also too salesy which was unnecessary since I have already bought the software and the book. The book is useful though, since the manufacturer's embrace of online help is weak and if the computer locks up and does not respond is worthless.
