    Very Glad I Bought This Book

    I am completely satisfied with my purchase of this book. The author presents the topics in a very easy to follow order with each topic building naturally on the one before. Of the sections I have read so far, each section is well sized with examples, explanations, and practice opportunities. The explanations are clear without being too brief or too wordy. Every explanation has an example to go with. Review points and questions at the end of each section are helpful for solidifying what you read, if you use them. I am eager to spend more time in this book. The author includes websites to visit for practical support tools such as checking code and syntax and w3c for a plethora of resources. I expect I would give this book 5 stars if I had read it through, but I haven't yet so I don't feel that I can score it perfect just yet. Before I purchased this book, I perused the shelves at the brick and mortar store and didn't find one that communicated in the format I was looking for. I'm very glad I waited for this book to come out! I recommend this book.
