Good articles but nothing new
I love CPS and have every copy that's been published. But, I was disappointed to find that this eBook is nothing more than a collection of articles that have been previously published in the magazine. If you read CPS a lot, chances are you've already read these articles. It's great if you want them together in one place, but not if you expect something new. Interweave should be more honest and state upfront (where it's easy to see) that these are pre-published articles. Review by Val (Posted on 6/20/2014)
