My book (Ruby in Practice) now in MEAP/Early Access/beta edition/whatever

Lots I need to blog about, and so little time and energy to do so! For this entry, though, I'll just mention that my book Ruby in Practice is now in the MEAP (Manning Early Access Program). So that means you can grab a PDF copy of the 2/3 of the book we have done (1/3 is posted now; next 1/3 should coming any day now) and help me edit it, work out bugs, insult me, and/or, hopefully, get something out of the content.


Now that you've heard me beg for you to buy it, go do it!

Congrats on your new book! I am partway through your Humble Ruby Book and enjoy your writing immensely. I think you strike a fine balance between being precise, concise, and entertaining. The size of the book is also quite unintimidating (a big book of information which is never read is useless).

I'm looking for your Ruby on Rails book ("relevant ramblings"?) and getting a "Rails application couldn't start message" on the rubyonrailsbook.com site (which is not exactly a ringing endorsement for either) but HEY, stuff happens.

Thought you'd want to know. If you can point to whereever your sample chapter is now, I'd be grateful. Thanks!

Really good. I didn't finish it yet, but I'm on my way to do that. It's my first approach to Ruby.
And I loved the entertaiment part, really funny.
Ahh, by the way, I'm not going to buy my paper book, so I already donate. Not that you are interested in this little item, but I wanted to mention it.
