Pretty basic. A disappointment

If you would like to sell used books online at Amazon, Half.com or eBay, either as a casual endeavor or as your new home-based business, this is a great book. It is not only rich in information and ideas, but it has a very captivating writing style. Very easy to follow reading, interesting, clear, practical, honest, and realistic. Six Gold Stars!!

Great beginner book - was not proofed

This book is great for beginners, but a little slow for anyone with any experience in JavaScript, ColdFusion, or any other tool for dynamic web pages. The examples are very thorough. Each new concept has a section with syntax, an example page, a picture of the result, and a step-by-step explanation of what is happening in the page.
However, it appears that the book was not proofed. I am a beginner, so I don't know if the code is all correct. I don't see how it could be, when the book is full of sentences like this:
"The function usually receives some information from your main code in the form a parameter (subprocedures can also received information from parameters in the same way, just they can't return the values directly)." -- page 206, paragraph 4.
I'm not an English major and wouldn't usually care about such things, but something like this really makes me wonder about the code examples. The spelling was checked, but the grammer is horrible, at least in the first 5 chapters (that's as far as I've gotten). It keeps this from being a five-star book.
Still, I am learning ASP, and that was the point of my purchase.
