    Comments about oreilly Rapid Highcharts:

    Had a review copy of Rapid High Chart ; The beautiful code that comes with this course gives an excellent base for analysing and publishing live data charts using javascript HighChart framework.
    The author goes through the full set of tools to be used for development like jfiddle and java script IDEs etc and thus takes the reader qickly to a state where you can be creating your own pretty charts starting from almost zero knowledge of js/html.
    Author creates interactive charts with clarity and makes it relatively easy to bring interaction live.
    With theme creation chapter I was looking for any hint about how can I possibly make a free content as a background of a chart. Any one more familiar with high chart may point me ina right direction.
