It's written well but can't be read easily because of poor typography.
Text is in 8 point and code examples are nearly lost visually in too
dark-background tint blocks coupled with a very small and ultra-light
typeface for the code. Result: eye strain forces reading in short
takes. Might not be so bad for younger eyes.
Helps to download the example code from the Wrox web site and view it
in a text editor.
