Although the book explains some of the basics of programming, it just exposes the exercises and some sugestions to improve your solution without showing any solution.

Challenges aren't real challenges. Most of them are simple exercises to practice conditional and repetition instructions, data scructures, easy calculations, file manipulations and things like that. There aren't exercises with algorithmic complexity.

Recommend only if you're a mid-level programmer who wants to "play" with some new

It’s been a while since last I reviewed a book, so I wanted to end the year with ... a review.

Exercises are very basic and easy for somebody who is already a programmer.
I expected something else from this book. I thought that there are exercises for programmers, requiring some more deep analysis to find a solution.
Exercises in this book are only for people who are starting their journey with programming.
