  • Very interesting

    By Radperson
    Very interesting, not too heavy and not too light in terms of tone. Engaging and well presented. There is actually a fair amount of interactive content (video etc) but it is perhaps too light on good old written content. The entire book is only 20 pages long - while it is a very well presented and interesting 20 pages, it's a shame it's not 200 pages. If this was in a bookshop it would be too short to sell. I'm looking forward to the days when nice thick well written and lavishly illustrated coffee table books can be bought as e-books but we are not there yet. Then again, at around $5 this book is reasonably priced for what you get (a bit over an hour of reading and exploring the interactive features).
  • Somewhat of a disapointment

    Over priced and under resourced. The small illustrations do not size up so any explanations using them as examples are a waste and a fustration. I,m sure the author has much knowledge but this is pure graduate work and then not necessarily a pass.
