Autoit Book

2 posts in this topic

This follows a post on a recent thread, but I feel a specific thread is more appropriate!

I have just taken delivery of this book:

AutoIt [Paperback]

Frederic P. Miller (Editor), Agnes F. Vandome (Editor), John McBrewster (Editor)

Paperback: 74 pages

Publisher: Betascript Publishing (13 Sep 2010)

Language English

ISBN-10: 6132815708

ISBN-13: 978-6132815705

Product Dimensions: 22.1 x 15 x 0.5 cm

It's a complete rip-off and is going straight back to Amazon!

I suggest that no one here even considers buying it!

below is a copy of the review I have submitted to Amazon:

This 74 page 'slim volume' costs £24 and is compiled entirely of articles copied from Wikipedia.

Most of the articles are unrelated to the programming language AUTOIT - 2 1/2 pages only!! There is no reference to how to program in this language other than a 'Hello World' message box example.

In short, I consider this to be a total rip-off and if there were an option to award zero stars, I would have used it! Thank goodness for the Amazon returns policy.

If you want to learn AutoIT coding, there's a wealth of help in its helpfile, in the online wiki, and from the very knowledgeable user community in the help forums.

I say again: "DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK"

Be warned!

Regards,

William
