When you read this book, keep these thoughts in mind:
These Tools Are a Starting Point
For the most part, each tool is just one option in a very crowded and competitive category. I included alternatives to each, but that list is just a starting place for a plethora of competitors.
These Tools Are Awesome
I chose these particular tools for their dependability, multi-platform availability, popularity and ease of use. If you’ve attended any of my presentations, this book serves as the missing manual for many of the tools I talk about.
This Book Is a Starting Point
For each tool, you’ll find insight, tips and ideas, but the sections are by no means exhaustive. If I covered all the functionality, each chapter would be a book by itself. The goal is to provide you some key techniques for making the most of the tool.
