I still think it’s a great book for complete beginners, but someone with more programming experience might find it a bit basic. definitely. i read it when i was just starting out, and i could feel that obvious lack of background, theory, and practice.
Does anyone else take issue with this book? It has a lot of useful information but it’s also littered with a bunch of useless facts that make the content more difficult to understand, the very thing you don’t want to do in a beginners book.
It took me around 6 months (~10 hours per week) to finish the book. It’s really rewarding when things finally click though. The annotated version might help, but it’s only for the first 6 chapters.
