It's a good book if you learn by following along, but they don't cover the reasoning or how the commands work. In the beginning they do a good job of explaining each step, but towards the end you can tell the author got lazy and just quickly runs through each command with little to no explanation. The pictures they provide do not let you zoom in so, get out your magnifying glass because the dimensions needed are extremely small on most of the drawings. Also, the book does not provide a link to the companion website and I can't find it anywhere online, which is necessary for the last 2 chapters, so if anyone has it please let me know.
The author assumes you know more than you do for a tutorial making for a lot of trial and error in pursuing the exercises.
Good basic kick start
This is a good book for beginner.
