"Some useful information but lacks details" - by dorong on 17-JUN-2014

I found some good tips in this book.
However, most code examples are not well explained and require the reader to figure out for herself why the code does what the author states that it does.
Since this book is already short as it is, I think the author should have gone into more details explaining the code examples.
