While agree to point... books, online references and code samples have been extremely helpful in defining the scope of the language, what built in functions are available as well as the language syntax and statement short cuts and methods.
However, most books and online references don't explain the nuances of why you'd want to do this over that, how to access objects, how and when to connect objects and methods and so on in a way that a lay person can quickly understand. And i'm always getting tripped up on the technical jargon.
From what i've seen of the "for Dummies" series, you get that extra hand holding or bigger picture and easier explanations of how and why things are done.
I know i'll get a few turned up noses on this issue, but, hay, not ever one learns in the same way and every one is not academically proficient.
