    Disclaimer: I own a hard copy of this book and decide to buy the digital edition so I can carry on my tablet. Weighs less.

    * Covers everything in a well planned order.
    * Each mini book is a referernce.
    * I learned from it as a beginner and 3 years later, I am amazed at what I missed.
