Those nice folks at Apress have provided two lovely PDFs for you to download, in order to get a flavour of the book. Bless 'em.
The Front Matter (all the stuff that comes before Chapter 1) lets you see the full Table of Contents, Foreword, author and reviewer profiles, and the book's introduction. There's no better way to get a feel for the book, so get feeling.
Chapter 15 (Tips, Tricks and Troubles) comes right near the end of the book, and is quite a fun chapter - perhaps not as strenuous as those it follows, and it is a good indicator of the kind of topics covered in the book.
