Burns maintains all of the example code and assignments from the book on his site, as well as a zipped version of all the files for download. As he presents each technique, he discusses the concept, illustrates the code, and pulls it apart to show you how it works. Each discussion also includes assignments that are refreshingly fun. If dry language tutorials put you to sleep, this book will hold your attention. --Stephen W Plain
