Most IT-oriented tutorial books only tell you how to use the software, what are the usage of the buttons, or how to make some special effects, and things like that. This one is NOT.
First, it does tells you about technical like how to install and what the buttons / terms are for. Second, it tells about the process of game design, so readers are encouraged to not just copy games they like but also (hopefully) able to see how those games work, what make them fun, and replicate the fun. Third, it tells example of how to make certain games-- not just in technical sense but also what considered the main cores of such games and why. Lastly, construct 2 itself is easy to pick up, doesn't need to know programming before hand, and portable to mobile since it use HTML 5.
