Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Not recommended as a Nook book. Though O'Reilly takes care to hyperlink chapter titles and other resources, so much of the book's "visually rich format" depends on clever charts and diagrams which would not render properly on either my tablet, my Nook SimpleTouch, or my Mac screen.
