"Hidden Gem" - by DJNeats on 15-SEP-2012

Yes I gave this book a 3 but only because of it's date. The technology has changed so much that some of the coding is not relevant or proper.

However, I did say it is a gem because it is one of the easiest books to read and I would really love a new one to be released.

It is has a great tone and is easy to understand.
