Can't read the quotes at the beginning of each chapter because they are displayed vertically and without spaces over several pages. This really needs to be fixed quickly. Doesn't anybody check the Kindle versions before they are released? For the price they charge I expect better.
I have put five stars only because I don't want to reflect negatively on the book itself which I only started to read and so far is pretty good. Amazon really needs to do give more options for feedback, one specially targeting the Kindle Versions.

Oh dear. Some books are written from a computer science point of view and some from a software engineering point of view - this one? The title suggest the latter, but the content points more to the former. The aim appears to have been to use as many words as possible and the result of that is repetition the begins from the first page.
Perhaps an earlier edition, which apparently won an award was better, or perhaps the award was worthless - I don't know (the listing does not state which award it won or when that was).
A book which uses the word "practice" in its title should be practical - this book isn't. I was very disappointed and felt that the authors should look again at it and condense it - bring it to a smaller volume that does not repeat itself and is practical.
