2.0 out of 5 stars Doesnt function on my tablet 6 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is great if I'm reading on my phone, but on my tablet all the input text is invisible, leaving the book pointless as I use my tablet to read text books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good item 1 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I cannot speak of the content because this was a Xmas present for somebody else but that individual has not come back to me and seemed very pleased on opening the gift. Too technical for me but well laid out.
