Consistent with other members of Peachpit's Visual QuickStart Guide series, this title makes wise use of side-by-side explanations and screen shots, as well as code snippets and their analysis. This approach gives readers the feeling that the authors are sitting by their side and showing them how to code scripts. Most subjects are handled with numbered steps, such as "Validating Zip Codes", and useful tips punctuate the text.
These are updates of titles that continue to sell; all are very visual and practical.

This is a good beginners book. Didn't get into really detailed programming but it covers enough for anyone starting out.Published on Oct. 24 2002 by R. Mercer
