Although the author claims to have written this book from a game programmer's perspective, and you do get to work through a few primitive games, you couldn't find work writing games for mobile phones after working through it. There is just so much more to game programming than what's covered here. So, the author leaves readers asking the all-important question: Where do we go from here?
BTW, for your sake, I hope this is just a strange coincidence, but my laptop suffered a hardware crash a day after I installed the software that came with the book. I then installed it on my desktop, which suffered its own crash a couple of days later, forcing me to reinstall the OS.
