The author recommends firefox as a search engine. This firefox is full of malware and vendors of all kinds. Just trash my computer, so by the time I clean it I will be an expert, guess. Probably is another exercise for dummies or beginner like me.

A hard language to learn. If you are a person who either: 1. Has time to learn OR: 2. Is under 15 and am a beginner, Then THIS BOOK IS NOT RIGHT FOR YOU. If over 15, am an experienced programmer, and as time to learn, buy it.
