Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deep dive into Regex. Just what you need for the intermediate to advanced Regular Expression user If you’ve ever dug into the challenging world of Regular Expressions then you will know just how important a great guide can be. This is that guide. Jan Goyvaerts and Steven Levithan have gone above and beyond what I could have hoped for with the Regular Expressions Cookbook from O’Reilly Media. The book guides you with great detail through specific examples ranging from a ground up view of simpler expressions, right though to deep dive samples that are presented not only with great detail, but also by platform to highlight some small but key syntactical differences. This is not a light read, but for what you get from this book it is worth the time you invest because of the skills that you will walk away with. For newcomers to Regex you will want to dip your toes in the water a bit before you delve into this book. Don’t let the depth of detail overwhelm you. The cookbook delivery is a great way to lead by example through some really great Regex content. This will be a well used book on my bookshelf.
