Default Can We Get An Update????

The author is suddenly strangely mute after promising to provide the code. It's concerning that it's taking this long to provide code for even one chapter. If the corrections and code are not available in the next day or two for at least Chapter 3, then I'll have no choice but to request a refund from Amazon and leave negative feedback. I got this book to assist me in completing an assignment at work; my boss isn't going to wait much longer.

Default Heartily Agree

I also purchased this book for a project at work, with a deadline of Jan. 23rd.

It appears as though there will be no more replies to the existing posts or the new posts. This would be a fabulous resource if it didn't contain so many errors.

I will also be contacting Amazon for a refund on this and will definitely be avoiding any more WROX publications.

I apologize that we didn't find these issues sooner. I'm asking the authors for an update even as I write this.

Default Going to try to return my book

For 50 dollars, I feel I have been taken.

I bought my book at barns and Nobel and will also leave negative feedback. I am lost in chapter 3 also.

Screen shots too small and poor resolution

Agreee with all others on steps that refer to steps not included. I can read between some lines, but it is slow and painful. For the money, this book clearly has never been edited properly. First and last book from this company.
