no stars
Very poor value for money when comparing the depth of detail with the cost.
1 stars
An introduction to the subject, but not in an easy to read format. Another introductory book would be required to obtain an adequate foundation.
2 stars
An easy to understand introduction to the subject. However, another book would be required to obtain an in-depth knowledge of the subject.
3 stars
A detailed review of the subject, (e.g. code examples, sample forms...). However, it's not perfect. Depending on the subject matter, it could be written in a different format, enabling rapid retrieval of information; or if a language guide, the examples might be poorly laid out, or too simplistic, etc...
4 stars
A well written, detailed review of the subject. Always in use!
