Needs resource list
This book needs an accompanying PDF or web site with a list of resources. I would like to see a cheat sheet for the plays and a comprehensive list of the websites mentioned. Listening to someone spell out a web address gets tedious.

Too much filler content
Too many URLs and step by step instructions about using specific apps. Why not just upload an supplemental PDF with links and call it a day? Also, the warning about "using this information responsibly" should only be mentioned once. We get it. We don't need reminders every 10 minutes.
All in all, not very informative and at times very redundant.

Good practical book
the book is good for the practical side of the subject. I would recommend it if you already have some knowledge.
