Default Professional Access 2013 Programming - Needs a name change

About 2/3 of Professional Access 2013 Programming apparently deals specifically with the Web or SharePoint. This makes it a very, very short book in terms of usefulness for the rest of us (and we do exist). Shouldn't that be represented somewhere in the title? Wrox has always produced good books, and I have several, but I hesitate to buy another (at least on-line where I can't look through it sufficiently) now, having wasted money on this one.

Teward: Thanks for your feedback. We try to make the contents of all books obvious for online purchasers through posting the TOC and indexes like these:
TOC: http://www.wrox.com/WileyCDA/WroxTit...fContents.html

Index: http://media.wiley.com/product_data/...8530837-20.pdf

Hopefully these will make future online purchasing decisions easier.

As for this particular book, I know the thinking from the authors and editors was that for Access 2013, almost all readers with previous Access experience would be more interested in the new and growing application of Access to SharePoint and the web rather than the parts of Access programming that have changed less over the last few versions. I'm sorry this decision wasn't a good fit for your needs.
