I wasn't sure what to expect when I ordered this book. I knew very little about the subject and I was doing research for an application I'm designing. I was happy enough with it to post my first review. I found the book very readable, wonderfully up-to-date, and full of concrete examples. The language wasn't dense at all and the images were helpful. The author obviously has a lot more knowledge to impart, and the book isn't very long, but I think any more information would have made the book less accessible. As it is, it's a great, meaty introduction to the subject and I finished it feeling very capable of directing the next steps of my learning about the topic.
