While most people that are looking for this book are not doing it because they want to, they are doing it because it is a required book for a class, this book is actually pretty good. I found that the writing was interesting enough to keep me engaged and there were great diagrams that went along. Every few pages there are one page breaks from the reading that have a real life scenario that relate to the topic but focused more. Those were a nice change of pace.

Does not work on windows 8 devices such as the tablet or laptop and android phones such as the Samsung s4. Refund is taking forever because the person I asked to cancel it, did not do so and never worked on my refund until now. This is why I RARELY use Amazon. Customers should be notified based on the kindle apps or devices they use (funny enough is stored with Amazon) whether it is compatible BEFORE purchasing. So I cannot speak on the book but 2 stars were taken away for the negligence Amazon seems to have.
