I love this book. My only complaint is, it doesn't have the online book version as the 2011 and 2012 did :-/ The only reason I updated to the newer book was because my subscription to the online book for 2011 expired. I was quite disappointed when I found this book didn't have it. Otherwise happy with the book.
