Thanks NetGalley and the Author for providing free copy of the book in exchange for honest review!
The Wide World of Coding is the book not only for advanced programmers, but for those who are interested in computers and the future of coding also.  I read it with a great interest and I recommend to anyone who is interested in this topic. 
The actual rating would be 4.5.

I truly enjoyed this book it was fascinating and spans information for all types of careers in coding. Although it may not be the intent I found myself laughing at the first photo as someone stairs at a computer as if it is the bane of their existence.... You have no idea how often I have felt that way. I am slowly working my way towards eventually getting a degree in computer graphics and I have spent many a coding class wondering if I would even pass the course. I spent countless hours trying again and again to complete what in my mind seemed like a simple assignment. I eventually not only succeeded but managed to get good grades. I loved the new inspiration to not only not give up but to see all the ways this path can lead so many opportunities. Although I intend to stay more on the design side I have learned a much deeper appreciation for the art and necessity of coding.

I received this book from NetGalley for an honest review.

This book is awesome, and as a girl doing a technical degree at the university of applied sciences, I'm always happy to read more about the successes of my line of work. This book actually is quite a handy guide to keep with me during the current semester's project (programming a robot to become an instructor who gives creative feedback on tai chi).
