An excellent example is in chapter four when talking about ONMOUSEOVER and ONMOUSEOUT.” ― Dr. Jenna Miley, Bainbridge College “The thing that struck me [about Reed] was how the examples are presented followed by adding functionality, basically anticipating questions that a reader would have after doing the examples.” ― Lionel Craddock, Bluefield State College “The examples are illuminating and effective.” ― Lionel Craddock, Bluefield State College “This text [Reed] offers very clear explanations of difficult topics.” ― Ralph Hooper, University of Alabama “Reed’s examples are relevant and fun; his language is clear and concise, and his use of the language is accessible to non-majors.” ― Arnold D. Miles, Georgetown University “The programming is presented in a well-organized manner; it builds smoothly.” ― Arnold D.
