It is well written and provides a good reminder of key topics/theories. Unfortunately, you cannot highlight/make comments for yourself so need to find another way to take/keep notes from what is covered. Also, there are too many "preambles" (overview "video" is monotone, knowledge statement is useful, introduction is more of the same and would be better suited to the summary). In my opinion, it would be better from the reader's perspective to have the knowledge statement and then get into the content. Examples throughout are good, but there could be more to really illustrate the use of the content.
I wish I could order a hard or printed copy.
The content in this book is great, so I have no criticism there, but the fact that you can’t highlight anything in the text is VERY disappointing. Also, I’m not sure if it’s just me, but every time I log on it never seems to remember the last place I read to. This is another disappointing aspect of the book. For the cost, both of these features should be available.
