Mr. Hatfield does a wonderful job of introducing the Powerbuilder environment to the novice programmer. Some experience with high level language is extremely helpful, but Hatfield writes the text well enough so that anyone can follow. He begins with a very simple example application to get u off and running, then goes into each component of Powerbuilder with a little more detail, even introducing some nice tips, and tricks like Powerbuilders Query Mode, etc. You will certainly not be an expert after the last chapter, but you'll have the big picture, and enjoy Powerbuilder.. Most likely the best starter book, i flipped through a few before purchasing it, this was a clear winner.
