This is a nice intro to using WebKit for mobile development for someone who knows HTML and JavaScript. Negatives: -Tells how to get and set up WebKit for Windows and Mac, but no info on getting and setting up WebKit for Linux. -Sloppy Nook version: -code sample layouts hard to read--a problem in nearly all eBooks I've looked at. This seems to be result of producing the Nook version on the cheap--since there are no printing costs, and the Nook version sells for just about the same as the dead-tree version, this is wrong. -Consistently uses the wrong direction smart quotes at beginning of quoted sections--including in code samples, which shouldn't use smart quotes at all, since they should all be in plain text. -Despite what the author says on p 15, none of the code samples is presented with monospaced font. These two "bads" also show cheap, sloppy work in creating the Nook version. -No way in Nook to expand the size of the exhibits. Many are small enough that they can't be studied easily.
