5GET THEM SPIRAL BOUND
By Ariel Tolome
[[VIDEOID:5c75cbf303c4ea056fc17559f585e602]] When I received them. I was excited to learn how to code. The problem was that every time I turn a page, it just felt like the book is about to break. After reading all the reviews about how their binding broke. I took action, I went to Staples and asked to get them spiral bind. They cost $6 each to add the spiral binding and I was impress with their results.

3Well-written books with horrible durability.
By Janus Varmarken
These books are generally well-written and visually appealing.

I have a set of minor complaints about the text, and one major complaint about the physical durability of the books.

First, the text seems to have a tendency to repeat the same example. This would not be an issue if the example code was reused in order to clarify a new point, but it gets slightly annoying when it is simply readdressing a learning topic that was already covered earlier in the text.

Also, if you come from a programming background, these books sometimes leave you with a lot of questions, i.e. they do not provide enough technical details in some passages. However, to be fair the books do target beginners, so this was somewhat expected.

The physical durability of these books is horrible. I'm only halfway through my first pass of the JavaScript/jQuery book, and the binding has already come apart (see pictures). I've been reading these while sitting outside in the sunshine - apparently the glue cannot withstand this. These books are obviously paperbacks, but they should at least last 3+ passes. This physical build quality is very disappointing and forces me to only award this book set 3 stars. Otherwise it would definitely deserve at least 4 stars.

5A very good complement to practical learning
By ABDUL
It is very good because it is easy to read and well organized. Some people would complain about a lot of images and empty spaces, but easy on the eyes for me and give you info in bites. The best way to use these books it to combine them with practical training (widely available online or on YouTube. Like SoloLearn and CodeAcademy). Read the relevant chapter in this book first, then practice it. Coding needs reading and practicing using various sources, because no single source gives you the whole story. It is a matter of accumulating bits and pieces of knowledge.
