Got Me Up and Going Quickly

This book was just what I needed to get me up and going with Applescript. Just work along with the examples and you’ll be scripting in no time. It’s not perfect - there are a few typos here and there, but nothing that intereferes with the main task of learning Applescript basics.
Once you’ve worked through this book you may find, as I did, that the Apple documentation, which is essential for more advanced work, becomes much easier to understand.
Many thanks for the author, Nayan Seth for writing this great introduction!

Excellent introduction

Excellent introduction to AppleScript. I was able to go through the whole book in an afternoon including practicing the examples. I encourage the author to write a similar intro for other computer languages.

This is a great tool

This book is very well written and the visually helpful. If you have a mac, learning this language is a great start when beginning to understand and master coding languages. Why would you want to learn this language? You want to learn it because you can learn how to control your computer.
