Each chapter stands on its own
Each chapter in this book is an isolated lesson. Many books and tutorials are written as one long lesson. Generally this means that an example program or application is created and updated throughout the book to demonstrate concepts and lessons. Instead, examples are included in each lesson to demonstrate the concepts, but the examples from different chapters aren't meant to be combined into one large project.
