    I’m a hobbyist wannabe programmer, and I’ve always wondered how those beautiful, consistent websites worked. Now I understand that a framework such as Bootstrap really does the heavy lifting. If you want to learn Bootstrap but are feeling somewhat stuck - I’d say this book is a good beginning. The subtitle “Learn Twitter Bootstrap in 2 hours” may be ambitious, but it actually takes about 2 hours to run through the book code excerpts. Typing it by yourself is highly recommended - you’ll find yourself making quite a few mistakes in the beginning - and a lot less by the end of the book. I also found very important to stick to CodePen HTML code - unfortunately there were mistakes in the book code (Ryan, a more thorough revision is recommended please). Since CodePen parses HTML code in its "page preview’, it can only work if it’s correct. Buy the book. You’ll invest a few bucks, a couple of hours of your time… And learn something quite useful if you’re on to web programming.
