    I'm with "j" on this one - downloaded the PDF....great book, well organized - thank you ! ( I have been involved with the computer industry for over 30 years, and am always interested in new ideas that will make programming more available to those that are interested )

    This book is terrific! The graphics are clear and very easy to understand. I don't know what the previous reviewer is referring to. Definitely worth the money if you are all interested in learning more about this amazing program.

    This book is exceptionally poor, I feel cheated at having paid nearly £20 (including VAT). The images are largely pixalated and poorly cropped and the information itself manages to overly complicate very simple tasks. Far more time is spent on computing trivia than developing solid programming skills through the use of scratch, there are hundreds of free sites which offer far higher quality information than this text and I would strongly recommend people take advantage of those instead. This book would have received 0 stars were that at all possible.
