Top Customer Reviews
Rather than being an expanded version of online documentation, this book takes a top-down approach to efficiently cover the bare essentials and get stuck in. Later chapters look at specific parts, such as regular expressions, in more detail.
While there is some repetition between chapters, I find this helps me to learn. However, the book does aim to be comprehensive, so expect some more esoteric content later on, including character encodings a large chunk of the language reference.
Improvements: Remove the language reference in favour of online chapters.
