Solid eBook gold for modern web people
This is an exquisite example of why multitouch and ePub 3 books were invented. Beautiful, clear, comprehensive, interactive and better presented here than in the multitude of places on the web you can go to piece this knowledge together. This is the first next-gen eBook that really trumped other media fir utility for me, in a sense, being in itself a killer app. If you are a web dev or want to be, this 4 dollars is simply essential.
Ms. Murley has always been a key resource for us, like an angel at WWDC and in the forums, introducing and clarifying the latest, greatest powers of webkit over and over. She brought the fire and taught us how to cook. This is where she takes that same ball and hits it out of the park. Most of this I already know, but getting to understand it took so long. Even so, in 2 minutes, I still learned new things in this book!
It is so nice to learn with a format like this. I wish every technical book was crafted with this much care.
