Now, I should tell you straight up, I know next to nothing about writing code. However, I do have a keen interest in science and technology (and comic book heroes); hence, the nerd part.

I needn’t have worried about the technical aspect.
If you love language, whether in literary or binary form, this book is a delightful read.
