I have a set of minor complaints about the text, and one major complaint about the physical durability of the books.
First, the text seems to have a tendency to repeat the same example. This would not be an issue if the example code was reused in order to clarify a new point, but it gets slightly annoying when it is simply readdressing a learning topic that was already covered earlier in the text.
Also, if you come from a programming background, these books sometimes leave you with a lot of questions, i.e. they do not provide enough technical details in some passages. However, to be fair the books do target beginners, so this was somewhat expected.
The material in these texts are aimed at people with zero experience. They gloss over topics with pictures and don't really teach you much of anything. They just give brief examples and move on without diving into it. For me they were a waste of $30.
