Who uses CD ROMS Anymore? June 5, 2017
Reviewer: DJC from Washington, DC  
While the content in the book is good, trying to get the software from the CD ROM installed on a newer computer that does not have a CD drive is a nightmare. Why can't the software be a web-app through a browser or allow users to download the software from the web?
