It's a great book for starters and for advanced programmers. The writing is really accessible for everyone and the examples are also pretty good and since they're common examples (not IT related - not directly), you don't have to know much of the subject to understand them. Definitely a good purchase!
The book was delivered quickly. I have ordered this book as it is on my recommended reading list for my degree, and it was pretty cheap to buy and it was in excellent condition. If I was buying this new, I would be looking at spending around £60-£70.
