Very simplistic book, ideal for beginners. The examples given were very academic. On a personal note I was expecting a little more from this book. The first half was a refresher and the second half didn't deliver what I expected from reading the back of the book. Read full review
Clear communication is lacking in this work of ?.
On page 37 in the left column, script 2.9 shows in the head area a src reference to script 07 , as to how that particular script plays its part and where it could be is not shown.
I did flip back through the previous pages and it would not make sense to use the previous script 2.7 and the href in the body area seems to go to the actual controlling script.
I went into the web site for this book and there is no errata area shown on the front page with the words errata or any indication to find corrections.
I did download the source scripts to see if they would hold any gold.
no, just more nonsense, the scripts in there show a format showing /*script01.html*/ etc, elaborate: script 01 through 09 .
While the book shows a format of 1.1 through 1.9 for chapter 1 and 2.1 through 2.9 for chapter 2 etc.
And the download scripts have a directory for each chapter and the scripts inside show a format of 01, 02, 03 etc.
Please note: "have made good money" and "writers like us".
I am learning to research Authors of books to see if they have anything to do with actual coding.
The Visual Quick Start Guide are good books, it is the Authors who can burn the meal.
