"Really disappointing" - by Anonymous on 02-MAR-2014

Book starts off really strong and reads well all the way through and is a good encompassing reference however, after chapter 4 much of the example code does not work. Which makes it useless and confusing as a jumpstart guide..  I thought it was me so it git cloned the git repo given in the book and that code was just as broken... disappointing.
