Pretty interesting!4 star

I've gone through the book and what I really liked about it is the interactivity of the reader and that he/she can't actually remove his/her eye from it. The fact that this book includes the most recent activities of the same workshops it talks about makes it more believable than other books. The author added some personal experiences and some real pictures of him and the class he taught which makes the reader more involved. This is one of the very rare books where you can learn from it by doing, and not just reading. The illustrations,graphs, and videos help in keeping the reader focused and gives the idea in shorter and more pleasant way. Other than some technical issues with some videos it contains, this book is great for getting much information in a fun way. Noticed one or two mistakes in grammar too. Over all, very interesting book!45
