"Gabriel Jennings and The Ferret Freedom Fighters."
Great book for a hands on person. I understand things better when there are visual examples that I can use. The only problem (so far) is the fine print. I sometimes need a magnifier to read it and wish that part of it was more user friendly. If not for that issue, I would give it a 5 star review. So, if you don,t have a problem working with fine print, I would recommend this book.
They are easy to understand and rely heavily visual aides
They offer books for beginner, intermediate, and advance users
This is a handy reference tool.
