This book teaches the way I learn. It starts with an overview of the entire subject and then goes into each part in depth. The overview gives me a structure to hang the in depth knowledge on. When an author goes into depth without giving an overarching understanding it's hard to see how the in depth information relates to the whole picture.
Haven't really reached very far in this book but so far its awesome!!!
Explanations moved too slowly and didn't seem to follow a logical progression. Too wordy for a beginner's book and not enough content for a reference. And frankly, just a dry read.
Clicking on code examples stranded my reader in the appendix with no way to navigate back to the section I was reading.
