This book would otherwise be quite useful as an introduction to the world of programming. Don't buy it on the Kindle! It is shoddily edited and all the code (ie the useful bits) have been rendered as an image and appear too small without much zoom-y fiddling about. Also, some of the main text has been rendered as an image along with the code and also appears too small. Some captions to tables and coding also appear in the wrong place, or two or three times.
This is aside from the author's witterings not being properly edited, so that some of his instructions are too wordy and/or don't make sense without a bit of re-reading.
Considering the kindle version costs £9.49, and doesn't come with the CD-ROM that the book does, I feel completely ripped-off.
