Easy to learn
I think this is a great book for beginners. They give you some easy plans to follow step-by-step (so you don't screw-up) so hopefully by the end of the book you can really do some damage by yourself. Bonus: They give you all the source codes and pictures so you don't have to start from scratch.
The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because some of the techniques are really useless like creating a calculator!

Very disappointing book
This book looks like you will learn a lot as there are 50 tutorials.
Unfortunately, many are redundant, many are not really significant (not really useful, just funny), and the last one is a filler as it teaches you how to make a projector.
If you are buying this book from a library, take your time to review the center page that display each "Technique" in color.
It is worth half the price it costs. Not a great deal anyway. At least, you get the source files.
This book is for beginner who wants to have a bit of fun.
