"The consistent usage of examples throughout the book is excellent. I rely heavily on examples for instruction as there is no better way to teach programming." ― Joan Boone, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

Negative: with the book being close to $100 and in its 6th edition, you would think that the editing department would have done a better job on this. I understand errors occur, especially in technical textbooks. But c'mon, I found myself constantly telling my students "this error on page ###" and "that error on page ###". While programming is partly about finding errors, I shouldn't be doing that within the textbook content that is supposed to be correct especially when attempting to teach first-semester computer students.
But buyer beware: the access code to the website that the book promotes as free is missing. If you go to the website you will find that you actually have to pay for the privilege. Sounds like the classic bait and switch to me, and in a book this price, it's a real disappointment.
I exchanged many emails with the publisher, Pearson. Finally they admitted that some booksellers do not include the access code in their books. Well, why can't they make this clear in the book and on the website, instead of luring people to spend money for what is supposed to be free access?
So it's the same old story: the author is excellent but the publisher, Pearson, is unethical.
