    Formatting is BAD from time to time. Content is awesome. It's amazing how up to date it all is even though it was written during the Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger and Windows XP era. They even included color screenshots, but man the price is high for no dead trees and iTunes needs to stop lying about the publication dates on ebooks. (iBooks ) This was NOT published in 2010 was it??
