O'Reilly has long held a reputation for top-flight technical books. I think it's a bit undeserved, but generally speaking I've been happy with them. This book, however, will have you asking how it made it to press. Because it's a basic, "click this, then that" type of book, it goes without saying that the screenshots that go with the instructions should be clear. What you get instead are black-and-white images that look as if they've been photocopied on a printer needing a toner refresh. Look at the other reviews here, and even the generously forgiving hearts who awarded five stars to this mess give mention to the poor quality of the graphics. One of my pet peeves about tech books--one that I will not overlook and have written about before--is paying a lot of money for a skinny text with huge diagrams/images/screenshots that take up so many pages like deliberate filler. Not only was that the case here, but the images were nearly unreadable.
