    Good Snippets

    This book is a great resource to have around when you are trying to remember a particular syntax or solution to a problem. This book is best used as a dictionary. You are probably not going to read it cover to cover but only when you need it. It was espically useful when looking up something and did not know any good keywords or the keywords were too general for a google search. All topics are presented in Problem, Solution and How It Works format along with the recipe.
