This is a great resource and addition to learning to create web pages and design. Having the Ebook/pdf companion makes this very helpful while learning and made it easier.
“Full Disclosure: I received this book for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review”
would come out as
left angle bracket, h, r, e, f, equal to sign, initial parenthesis, h, t, t, p, colon, forward slash, forward slash, w, w, w, period, e, x, a, m, p, l, e, period, c, o, m, forward slash, closing parenthesis, right angle bracket...
These kinds of descriptions, while very necessary and unavoidable, became very tedious to listen to for me. I am quite sure that this is quite normal, and probably explains why there aren't many audio-books for technical topics that involve coding.
Yes, I'd still like to try other attempts on technical topics, but I'll be much quicker to judge based on my experience with this publication.
I would, but not for another technical topic.
No, I don't think that a follow-up is necessary. This QuickStart Guide sufficiently covers the topic it intended to address.
Just like you, I spend my money here and am not on any author's payroll :)
No issues with the content, but the audio works best when viewing the companion PDF document while listening. Also, the verbalization of software code character-by-character is unclear, and eventually annoying/boring all by itself. Again, listen to this with the PDF with attention focused on the material - this isn't a title you want to listen to while driving, for example.
Full Disclosure: I received this book for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
This audio book is a great starter for beginners. Especially if they are auditory learners. It did come with a PDF file of the book (that I had to request after listening to the first part of the book as I did not automatically receive the file when I got the book). I don't think I could have made it the whole way through the book without this file. I needed to see the script examples as my mind became numb hearing the code spoken.
The gentleman reading the book does a fine job. I just think the codes should not have been read, but that is just me. Also in reading the codes almost everything was given except spaces. When learning a new language/program you do not automatically know where those spaces go. So another good reason it comes with that PDF file (make sure you get it otherwise you may be very lost).
I was given this book for free for my honest review.
It doesn't matter where you go in life. It's who you're with.
I received this item using a coupon code for review purposes. Any opinion expressed is mine alone
YES! It does contain a few mistakes that most people who program will easily catch. While Mr. Fatania speaks distinctly and clearly, his pronunciations of some words do not match my dictionary and it makes it annoying. He is also not consistent with how he refers to math operators which makes it confusing. Also, since it is billed as an audio book with a companion .pdf, most of the mind numbing reading of the code character-by-character should be left to the .pdf for reference and the basics/mechanics should just be described or explained.
Yes, because it is a 'Simplified Beginner's Guide'.

Easy to follow
Great for beginners, easy to follow, and really breaks it down to the bones.
provided for review
This is great for beginners to get a better idea of what they are about to jump into when it comes to JAVA. I am a newbie and this was helpful for the basic knowledge that I needed. I have high expectations for books that I learn from especially when I get it to ^^review for free.
wysiwyg fundamental accessible
The layout of the basic concepts are good and clear.
Narrator, Tony Fatania
The book is well titled. It is a great quickstart guide, and explains all of the fundamental concepts, basic conditional and loop statements, objects, and more.
