A very interesting guide to a topic many can see as boring. This book is not only full of information and tools but is also entertaining and funny! Also at the end of the day you can use this book as a context guide to different sections within basic programming. I recommend it a lot.
The writing in this book is effective because of the author's incorporation of sense of audience. This book can teach pretty much anyone how to code. The book's sense of audience is it's greatest strength, but the book lacks substance, and is basically a how-to. I would recommend this book to classmates willing to go through the process of learning programming skills. Now that I have read this book, I feel I can move on and learn coding online instead of reading more "Dummy" books.
