    Great book

    I have yet to complete the book as I am in the midddle of another. I find the book easy to read with many side notes and illistrations making it very easy to understand. I used PowerPoint quite a bit in the past but after a few years ,as they say, if you don't use it you loose it. This book is just what I needed.
