Praise

“Much more understandable than most books of this type, even when the author delves deeply into machine code, programming languages, operating systems and the internet. He details 41 hands-on projects, including games, running a web server, and so on. It’s just right for the would-be software engineer.”
—Joy Schwabach, Arkansas Democrat Gazette’s On Computers
