Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As with all books which feature the open source animation software 'Alice' this is in part a tutorial and in part an exploration of the basic principles of Java.

If you are new to 'Alice' it is both affordable and useful and will certainly get you started with the program. It won't teach you many of the finer points, but it will give you a good enough grounding to be able to start using and exploring the software. After that, you should be better able to understand the in-program tutorials; other tutorial-style documents that you can find online; or some of the less geek-oriented books about 'Alice' that have been published.

In short - it's probably the best and cheapest introductor book about 'Alice' that you will find.
