This is a well-paced, smart, engaging....fun?? (can I say fun in relation to learning?) book that made me feel like I was hanging out with a brilliant guy for a few hours each week who can "talk the talk and walk the walk", so to speak.
There is balance to each of the modules: theory, practice, and self-learning, and there is a tone set very early in the book: (1) here is an idea and a practical analogy, (2) here is what will be taught in the following few chapters, (3) here is a wrap-up with strengths and weaknesses, and (4) here is where you can find more information on this and other relatable topics. In between there are break-out discussions, there are real code samples that make sense(!), there are self-learning suggestions, and there are basic hands-on exercises that (almost) anyone can do.
And all of this is done with a steady, easy pace, mapped out (if you prefer) in calendar time so that its not overwhelming and fits into the busy lifestyles of the very people that should be reading this book...now!
