      Comments about oreilly Learning Processing, 2nd Edition:

      This book is precisely what I expected from it, based on its description. It covers from virtually zero knowledge to relatively advanced knowledge, so that this one book not only gets you started, but also takes you all the way to a level which then allows to look for very specialized books on the subject matter. All in all, very pleased with it. Now going through it in more detail in front of my computer.
