I've looked at quite a few programming books in my 11 years of programming and this one is near the top of my list. Instead of boring me with too much theory or gee whiz garbage, this book provides just enough background information so that I understand the example code that follows. The example code is a little broad, I would have preferred something more specific, but I still ended up learning quite a bit. I love the tips and Internet sources that the author provides, but I wish there was an index for them. It takes forever to find what I need when I'm in a hurry. I contacted the author and he said he will add this index to his Web site. Overall, there are very few nits to pick with this book. All of the code works and the theory is right on the mark. The only thing I would have preferred is more short examples showing specific coding techniques. This book is a very good buy for anyone who likes a mix of theory and full fledged programming examples.
