I Programmer's book reviewers read over 200 programming titles per year. That's only a fraction of the programming books published, but we try to cover the important ones. In Programmer's Bookshelf we recommend the books you might find helpful at different stages in your personal development.

Having told us the book is
short, easy-to-read and you are likely to learn something from every page
the review continues
"sophisticated about programming and prepared to put work into decoding the text of the book".
The book suffers from the common problem of trying to tell the beginner too much in an an effort to be complete, but you can always skip the detail.
Ian's other criticism is that the book leaves the choice of frameworks until the final chapter.
