Thank you. I really appreciate the reply. Opinions will always vary on
anything, but that's exactly it.. too many books to know where to
start, and this seems like a great recommendation. Good reviews on
Amazon too. I think I'm going to order it.

If you're still in the mood for another Clug reply, some pointers to
your personal favourite online tutorials to recommend would save a
fair amount of trial and error with google too..
