1.0 out of 5 stars
Worst book ever bought, 20 Oct. 2007
First all the content of the CD for the code, same as the one written in the book failed to work after 5 days. Send the publisher and the writer an email. I never got a feedback. Also the author's email address in the book is bogus (Doesn't work).
Amazon told me as well that I will get refunded the postage incurred in sending them the book back via recorded delivery. Costed almost £7 to do that, and they only refunded the cost of the book. So I actually only get £10 back (I don't think it is back on my card yet). Nice profit amazon. I will certainly have second thoughts putting an order in again. And thanks for ignoring the two emails I sent once you get your book back. I wonder if I will actually see my refund at all.
Get this one instead.
