The book is great - the print quality is abysmal
on 29 December 2010
I agree with most of the rave reviews about the contests of the book. It is filled with inspiring geek-epics and is the foremost collection of its type.
Having said that, I my score reflects the overall quality of the book. The print quality is terrible. The book looks like it has been produced with a prototype print-on-demand printer. Although it is full of vintage stories from the early days of tech, maybe it shouldn't look like it's come through dot-matrix printer, anyway? Combine this with the font being very small and the ink used not black, but grey, the reading experience becomes very difficult.
I have contacted Apress about this over Twitter and over email, to no avail.
Do not buy this edition (Paperback, ISBN 9-781430-210788) if your eyes are dear to you.
