I'm very disappointed with this book. It is very badly organized. Topics are often repeated, many times they are left incomplete and often they are scattered throughout the book. There are errors too. The book refers to an Appendix C, which does not exist. There are not enough examples of code nor are there enough examples of the rendering of the completed code. Far too much attention is given to explaining what happened in the past (who cares?) and the quality of the written english is also very bad. Some sentences defy translation. This is not a masterpiece.
