Reviews from Amazon readers:

5 stars Clear and easy to follow
Very clear and easy to follow, like all of Mike McGrath’s books. Amazing what you can do with very little background.

5 stars Great book. A little basic but helps with the fundamentals.
Great step by step instructions on building apps. The ‘coding’ used is very similar to Scratch. Great for beginners and will give you a taste of what you could potentially do in the future. Very pleased.
