Top Customer Reviews
Every line of the program code shows NO indentation.
Many of the code is in ONE long line. (CR-LF lost)
Other kindle books work well. Only this book is problematic.
The publisher should have checked it.
I wish the publisher to correct this kindle version immediately. (it seems easy.)
Or irrespective of readers?
The PDF version was more useful, since at 150% zoom on a 27" monitor, it was easier to read.
The author does a reasonably good job, since programming is a very complicated subject matter.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
I than proceeded to write my first program and applet in 60 minutes. I've found the discussion on classes to be informative without weighing me down too much into the details, but providing enough information to jump start my training. I had tried other instruction books on the topic and found the discussions to be distracting. I'm 52 pages into the 1100+ page book and found that I really connected with this resource.
