The book is lovingly written in a way that all technical people should behave, or for that matter, every conscious entity should behave: focus on the positive, respect the negative, and move on with life. The book covers tons of great guts of the language and how to use it “for real”. I need not say more, the book delivers on its promises, and that is why I gave it a 5/5.
The Kindle version looks great, everything is readable. The chapters and sections are light and terse, you get a lot of bang for your buck. In terms of the voice, it wasn’t my personal preference, and for me it was really hard reading, but that is my problem, not the author’s, and consequently the rating stands.
