Disappointing. Not the content, which is quite well written and easy to follow, but the formatting. The text often refers to examples which don't appear in the text. Some of them do appear in the HTML or PDF version, but not all. I purchased this to read on a Nook so I wanted the .epub version. I found it frustrating to have to go back and forth between the Nook and a computer to try and find examples.
In the end I gave up and bought a different book. I wanted to like this one, really, but a programming book without accessible examples isn't of much use.
