As for the production of the book itself... The paper is cheap. Not as white or as smooth as it could, and should be. The print is small. It was a little tough to study from.
On to what I didn't like. It wasn't the easiest book to read. I had to set it down plenty of times because it was so dry. There are not a lot of exercises, just a bunch of text and then quizes. This might be great if you absorb a lot from reading, but if you are more a hands on type of person I would steer away from this. I suppose you could take the steps they provide to do things and do them yourself, but that just wasn't working for me.
There seems to be a good flow to the book, and the overall formatting and included images lends itself to easier reading. I certainly appreciate the pre-chapter quizzes and review questions. Some topical terms and acronyms are brought up before they are defined, which can add a bit of confusion. I was told previous versions of this book contained physical media for practicing, but this appears to have been replaced with a coupon for discounts off digital downloads.
The errors are certainly not unique to this publication and are not a deal-breaker. I'm glad I have the book, but it causes me some mild frustration.
