    Story
    "Coding examples are too long for audio"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Better choice of code examples. Many coding examples were unnecesarily long so the point was lost in a verbal context.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The introductions to each chapter were well written. However, the code examples were often poorly chosen.

    The female narrator was very effective and pleasing.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    n/a
