What’s Packt Publishing?
Packt Publishing is arguably one of the better technical publishers who understand that customers value fair and reasonable prices and DRM free. They provide books and videos on a huge range of technologies. Over time, Packt Publishing built a massive selection of books and videos on a variety of technical subjects. There are some real gems on technical topics that provide terrific knowledge that can be found among the vast amount of books and videos everywhere. Pact publishing is your one stop shop where you will often find several books and videos about the topic your looking for.
The quality overall is above average. You may be tempted to fall victim to one of the many rants online about the satisfaction level of the customer who felt that the book or video did not live up to their expectations. As with any product or book and just about anything for that matter the end product will always depend on who has created the product or eBook, what the product or subject is, and at which point in time they were actually written and how was the product or materials made and where was it created. Just like when you are buying products, where the product was made can sometimes say a lot about the quality of workmanship and the original product verses knock off products matters.
Remember, this is not always the case, so you must do your research. You would not buy a car without a test drive right? Packt Publishing offers samples and you can always google search the author to see what else they have written or been a part of. Plus they give you a chance to get a Free eBook everyday to see the quality yourself.
Sometimes the way one person explains it or shows it clicks with you over the way another does it. They are both providing the correct information however the way it was delivered to you and how you were exposed to that information can change your experience. If the information was truly useless I doubt it would have been made into a book. Even though some books and topics may be extremely basic and you wonder why would someone read this? Chances are, your not the target audience. But that said, some won’t pass the smell test.
