I have a networking background and no programming experience.
I have spent a lot of time reading this book and I find it very difficult and uninteresting to read.
It is a real drag to read, and explanations are unnecessary boring. The programs are also a bit abstract.
It's like a general theoretical introduction but no real useful programs that you want to make that could also be easy to code.
Sometimes things appear to be random in the code for no reason or explanation. For example the code has a few double quotation marks which I can't work out what they do, (" ").
Other times the author goes overkill on specifics to the point of causing the reader to hope for death. This causes the reader to skip bits which presumably is unhelpful.
I would have preferred the writer to have specificed what program he was going to teach us and then the components we need to know to write the code.
But I suppose it must be difficult to write an interesting book on programming?
