5.0 out of 5 stars Iran is wrong April 4, 2012
By adhilde
Format:Kindle Edition
I find the book informative. I have a hard time understanding a previous review that the book is so short, as well as his claim that the book has no value for developers working towards understanding development in the social web space. His claim that the book is only 8 pages is strange. He must have his font very small... regardless, I appreciated the simplicity of the book along with Joel's developer insights. I hope to see more from Joel soon.

1.0 out of 5 stars waste of money May 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Don't buy this "book". It's ridiculous this guy "published" this. It's about 8 pages of crap that's all in the Facebook developer tutorial for free. Trust me, don't waste your money on this, it's a joke and amazon should keep stuff like this out of the store. Next thing you know everyone will trying to "publishing" their blog posts and selling on the Kindle Store.

Enough to get me started, as per the other reviews, this Info's probably free online but at least with an ebook, it's a quick reference.

1.0 out of 5 stars THE WORST "BOOK" IN AMAZON - DONT BUY IT !! October 15, 2011
By Iran
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Really a waste of time. Bad written. The "Book" have 8 PAGES ONLY, from "Introduction" to "about the author". And 2 only of code, with no explanation.
There should be really a minimum quality policy in amazon. Since this isn't a "Book", even a brochure. THIS IS A SHAME !
