"Not many books have a single project that lives and evolves through the entire narrative. The reason not many books do this is because it is difficult to do well. Important toolkit features get shoehorned in weird places because the author didn't do enough up-front design time. This book, though, takes you from design, to a prototype, to the Real Deal. And then it goes further."
