First, let me apologize for using such an "old" book, and there may be newer versions out by now. But if so, I will certainly not be buying them to find out if they are better.
This purports to be a definitive guide, and I have come to expect O'Reilly books to be of high quality. Unfortunately, this one is almost worthless to me.
It is the lack of enough high quality code samples that is the chief
problem of the book. The code samples tend to be very short , a line or
two or three, where longer examples would have been more to the point.
The author could have saved himself, and the reader, a lot of words
and time by using more and better, succinct code samples.
