WROX books are very very indepth and very very detailed - they will cover everything - in depth - i think they’re excellent but they are tomes
It really depends what you’re looking for.
“More to the point and comprehensive but less practical”
I think you just described WROX as a whole - probably great ‘reference’ books
Sorry for the late reply. I would be lying if I said that I’ve never thought about the YDKJS series. I’ve had my eyes on this series for so long, but was kind of unsure if these books would really serve the purpose. Right now, I’m in the middle of “Scope and Closures”, and can’t stress enough the fact that these books are really concise and dense enough.
