    Disappointing

    I found this book to be a disappointment. It looked good in the store but after reading most of it I felt like I had wasted my money. The author writes about the easy stuff and glosses over, or omits entirely, the more difficult areas. His coverage of the topics is not in an optimum order, leaving the reader wondering why certain code was included only to find out why in later chapters. Nearly all examples omit field member declarations but include non-used menu handling code. In my opinion, his programming style is at a less than professional level. For example, in many of his test conditions he assumes a Boolean result from a non-Boolean variable value without explicitly forming a Boolean expression. I also found the use of Hungarian notation to make the code samples less readable and harder to follow. He would do well to read and apply the principles from 'Writing Solid Code', by Steve Maguire prior to writing any more sample code. Frankly, I learned much more, while spending less time and effort, by reading the 'Codewarrior for Palm OS Tutorial' that comes with Codewarrior.

    Good, but not as advertised

    This book has pros and cons. On the positive side, it is very easy to understand with code available to get you started. However, I bought this book because I want to use the Prc-tools and not code warrior. The book stated that it supports both. Unfortunatly, this book favors code warrior, heavily. All GUI examples are using the the Code warrior IDE. And, as I just realized, the code which can be downloaded from their site only supports prc-tools for the first 5 or six chapters! The rest of the book is all code warrior. I wish someone would make a good Palm OS programming book that caters to the open source developer community. Isn't there enough code warrior documentation already available?
