Um.


This book would be a waste of your money to purchase. Throughout the book, there are a few small tidbits of information and following everything it says, "If you want more information, go to our website and enter code ..." In essence, the strategy guide is a link to get people to go to their website playonline.com. This book was a big disappointment to Brady strategy guides.

Hmm, I'm not quite sure about this book...


I can't quite put my finger on WHY. All I know is that I DIDN'T like this book at all.
This is one of those books that has a lot of "filler" material. You know, historical, or arcane information - of absolutely no use to the subject at hand: but it does make the book look bigger.
Also, I thought it was too technical. Admittedly, there is not too much information available about USB. Fortunately nowadays - you can just go out and purchase a ready made solution; anything not to have to wade through this book...
