"Good fundamentals - poor way of writing the book" - by Anonymous on 21-FEB-2014

Book covers some very important concepts and the author has done a decent job. However his way of writing and code examples used are very difficult to follow and not interesting. Ex. for coding, he used some example of AdAge - which has no meaning and he is comparing string in it. So it becomes very difficult to follow the concept as code doesn't make sense.
