Hi,

might be indiscrete question. I am a bit curious.
The sourcebeat titles I have, the books of Bill Dudney and Matt Raible are helpfull ones. You can't read them in bed. One must be plugged to the computer, because they have a rich praxis oriented approach. This is a good thing.

Wish you all the best for your book.

Well someone suggested that I write a book at JavaOne last years. Over drinks at the Thirsty Bear I think. The idea stuck in my head so I worked up an outline and approached SourceBeat. You could always print the books out if you want to read in bed or buy the print on demand version.

Scott,

this was one episode from the serie posting in english on a stressfull day.

I expressed myself in an unclear way.
With plugged to the computer I've meant that in my opinion sourcebeat books tend to have praxis relevant examples, which I have to follow by trying them out myself to understand them fully. At least with my brain.
This is good for really digesting the stuff.

Axel
