From the Publisher
We believe that giving programmers graphical tools more often results in programmers creating things that make designers cringe, rather than programmers acquiring design sense and hence this book. The book is split into three parts: the extensions, the case studies, and the function reference -- that way someone looking to just read case studies has a definite place to start, and people looking for the descriptions without large amounts of code can read the beginning and the one's who want to stick it by their side for reference, know exactly where to go.
