Essential Slick: a review

I read the HTML version, as I'm reading it on a Macbook, and HTML just seemed the most generic. I have tried Slick tutorials, for example, and the Hello, Slick example projects - only to have them fail out of the box or simply not working, with no clear explanations. I'm pleased to report that this has not been the case with Essential Slick - the code has worked very well, and been explained clearly. While in early access, there are a few minor problems - for example, in the book's source code they use durations early on without specifically including them or describing them.
