Format: Paperback
This book provides a very basic introduction to LSL scripting. Everyone of the scripts in the book can be obtained as freebies within SL and much more can be learned about LSL in the SL Wiki and various other online tutorials and references. Speaking of references, this book had none. One of the few reasons I keep programming books around is that its nice to be able to flip open a book and get a quick answer to a programming question. Well, forget it. This book has no reference section and a marginally useful index.

I liked this book a lot. This book is useful for both a beginner who wants to get started in the basics of LSL and also very handy for someone with scripting experience who wants a nice inventory of ready to use scripts that can be easily dropped onto an object.
For the beginner, the book starts out with an overview of the Linden Scripting Language (LSL) and descriptions of the most commonly used functions in LSL. The explanations are clear and contain examples for each newly presented concept.
The real value of this book though is in the wide array of useful scripts provided. When I started in SL, I bought various in world items which did things using scripts. I realize now that if I had had this book then, I could have made these objects myself, which at least for me is more fun than just spending Linden dollars for someone else's not modifiable way of doing something.

Here is a list of some of the scripts included in this book.

When I first got this book, I was frustrated with it because it jumps deep into LSL and makes an assumption that you have a basic understanding -- it is not an introductory book. And to be fair to the book, it doesn't hold itself out to be an introductory book. If you are looking for a beginner book in LSL, get something else!

BUT, after I spent some time learning LSL through other sources (online Wiki!) I found that the book actually has become really useful to me as a way to understand LSL. In other words, don't make this your first book on LSL, but maybe make it your second.
