Needs resource list

This book needs an accompanying PDF or web site with a list of resources. I would like to see a cheat sheet for the plays and a comprehensive list of the websites mentioned. Listening to someone spell out a web address gets tedious.

Good practical book

the book is good for the practical side of the subject. I would recommend it if you already have some knowledge.
