A quick look through the code examples of the book show just how well organised and commented the code is. In fact there were times when I didn't need to consult the book to understand what was going on.
I've already recommended this book to several back-end coders who have all commented on how good the book is. It is a get your hands dirty book so if you are not prepared to fire up the code examples and work through them then I don't recommend it. If you are then go and buy a copy!
