1.0 out of 5 stars could not really recommend it., 30 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not really interesting. The characters are weak, the plot is not too engaging, and the central character. detective Harry Bosch, is certainly not a empathetic character. The ending is weak a bit of a let down.

Overall, could not really recommend it.

A complete rip off . i am astonished that a company like Amazon would partake in such a RIP OFF of customers.
Their is not one line of code or XAML in the whole book which consists of about 30 pages. The whole instructions tell you to down load Eclipse 9 already wrong as Android Studio is now the preferred IDE) and begin to develop your app. There - I have given you all the information the book does for free!
.
i was scammed in buying this book - don;t be fooled like me. Steer well clear.

PS. I am asking Amazon do delete this book from its listings.

An excellent narrative of the deep south in early 19th century. This book should be essential reading for anyone interested in slavery as a human condition, and those with an interest in American history.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for me and out of date, 2 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Head First Java (Paperback)
The title says it. I think i am not the target audience for this book. The authors are aware that many people would not find the book "for them". Other than the obvious, i.e. those looking for refernece book or those with limited experience, they believe this book is unsuitable "if you are afraid to try something different". It is hard to think of anything more condensending, i.e. if the authors fail the fault is yours. Wrong and a big "no no" in any education setting.

The layout, while it includes a lot of images, is confusing and difficult to follow. The examples are engaging for children under 10 but not very useful for someone wanting trying to tackle real programming problems. For example, images for the Exception class show a housewife not turning off the oven, someone else roller boarding and it opens with an image of soemone on a snow board. Engaging for children but surely not so for most adults.

The biggest fault for me though, ir that it is for Java 5.0 and not 6.0 ( or indeed 7.0 , the latest version) . So it is really out of date and could not be recommended for someone beginning study now
