A reference book is supposed to be just that: you need to look up something, you look at the contents or the index, then you read what is written about the subject. That is not how it works her. This is just a summary of their other book. You cannot just read over what you are looking for, you are referred to previous chapters, to other terms. For instance, i wanted a refresh on "sealed", instead of a definition and an example, i am supposed to look up "abstract" first, which is explained in it own section, instead of being part of the explanation.
Might as well buy the complete book, but then there are better ones. This is just easy money for the authors and publishers.

I've read about the half of this book, it's good for experienced programmers, and not for total beginners. It's explained rather well and straight-forward examples. Best for reference use!
