Congratulations on the authorship Chris!

Any chance of a "community discount" coupon or something like that?

Thanks, hanzibal. (blushing)

Hmm, that's a good idea! I'll ping O'Reilly and see if they have one I can give out :) It's already pretty inexpensive--but discounts are a welcome bonus :)

Sorry, I didn't realize that it was an already quite affordable piece of literature. However, I did see that it's already available here in Sweden so somebody's must be doing there jobPosted Image

Hi Congrats on the book. This isn't actually important but I thought that I would let you know. I downloaded the free chapter from Amazon to read at breakfast, But all I got was the contents section. But I didn't actually get to read any of your actual writing to see if it was worth buying. I know you have sample chapters on this website and at some stage I will read them instead but , I thought it was strange that they weren't the same chapters as Amazons free chapters. Anyway just letting you know there may be some sort of disconnect, in case you weren't aware of it.

I know what you mean but amazon so far has ignored the free bies else ware and generated its own sample from the first % of the book.

Hi Marcin,

Any news on the book coupon topic? ;)

Sorry, no coupons from the publisher today. I'll continue asking :)

But since the book is so inexpensive and already heavily discounted at resellers...

Thank you very much for your enthusiasm!

Chris

Good book Chris. Any plans to make a more intermediate or advanced level book?

In stores, but if you wanted one at Maker Faire you had to buy a kit! Out of stock for just the books. That's okay, I hear a local electronics store might have them soon :D
