Other Interesting Bits

- has a link to Amazon for her book. I like this option (if you're going paper) because it's a little bit cheaper, and I bet that the author probably gets a little kickback from the 'Zon, albeit not much. Still, every bit counts, I guess.

- I really like the way handles their books. For one, the ebook isn't an outrageous price. For two, they offer the lesson files (source code) available for download. When I'm buying a book, having a peek at not only the chapter list but the code gives me a great idea of what's going on in a book, and if it's worth my time and money. Kudos to you-dos.

Hope that helps! :)
