Zachary Quinto - best known for his role as the Nimoy-approved Spock in the recent Star Trek reboot and the menacing, power-stealing serial killer, Sylar, in Heroes - brings his well-earned sci-fi credentials and simmering intensity to this audio-exclusive novella from master storyteller John Scalzi. One day, not long from now, it becomes almost impossible to murder anyone - 999 times out of a thousand, anyone who is intentionally killed comes back. How? We don't know.

I was looking for a casual introduction to Python, and found it in this book. Basic instructions about functions and syntax, explained in a concise fashion. I didn't expect the code to be spelled out, but I followed along easily by typing it out at my desktop. Great listen!

The world of coding can appear to be a confusing place from the outside looking in. A block of code might make as much sense as a block of hieroglyphics to you right now. That doesn't have to be the case! So many great programming languages now are designed to be simple and easy to work with. One of the best coding languages that you can learn as a beginner to start working with websites is JavaScript.

This is a well written little Java book. It goes into detail about the background and history of Java, and follows up by explaining some of the functions of Java and how to use them. The author provides a step-by-step guide at the end to build a simple program. There's plenty for beginners here, but not enough to overwhelm them with information. Well done!
