Needs Much Editing (Not ready for prime time) 28 April 2012
By JoatMon - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This pamphlet-sized book contains too many errors and omissions to be of much value. It is unfortunately missing a great opportunity as the book could have been very useful if only there had been adequate editing and validation of the content.

As a simple example that should have been caught by a basic editing pass, there are several places in the text where the italicized word "here" appears instead of text of an actual link (URL). Note that this is in the printed copy of the book; perhaps the electronic version has actual link content.

Even more difficult to overcome, however, is the lack of correct instructions. The text leaves out many required steps so the reader's experience is not consistent with what is presented in the book. Specifically, readers who follow the instructions provided are left with something that doesn't work and no indication as to why.

The primary value of a book such as this is helping achieve initial successful experiences with the tools and technology without needing to go through the various components' references on your own.

Unfortunately, the need to go to the principal sources in order to overcome the errors and omissions of this edition negates the value of this book.

My recommendation is for the publisher to engage quality control resources to rigorously vet this book and -- assuming there's still a receptive audience -- release a thoroughly revised edition that corrects the errors and provides accurate instruction.
