"found it hard to follow" - by Anonymous on 18-JAN-2013

I was hoping that it would help me learn pig latin, but it mostly just had some small examples and then DID NOT EXPLAIN the syntax that it just had in the example.

For example in ch 5 "foreach" is used, but it doesn't explain what "generate" does, or why it is required.

Then when it talks about "group" I had a hard time following after several readings. It also constantly references things like "describe", which it has not yet described or given a reference to where you can find them.

It seems rushed and not well thought out or properly reviewed.
