I wrote this book to be readable from cover to cover, beginning with Chapter 1. I was also mindful that many readers are busy and may not have the time to read hundreds of pages in one sitting.
The many code listings will help you find examples to support the theoretical material presented; the chapters are organized to require only a modest amount of interdependency. If you are looking for answers to specific questions, you may be able to find all the material in one location.
I stand behind what I write, and I strive to offer the most accurate and informative content available. If you have any specific questions, feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Any feedback is appreciated.
