Hi Guys,

Great to be hanging out here for a few days. We hope people really enjoy the book!

@Vivek, we worked really hard to make the book fun and productive with an "in the trenches" vibe -- so hopefully it captures the spirit of Grails!

Glen.

Hopefully, I will remember this request later this week ...

Regardless, if I don't, and you happen to win, just let me know -- I can pull the next name from the generated list then.

Hi,

Groovy in action is seems to be a good work , I am yet to complete the book...but I completed the part 1 and part 2 so far this book seems nice, the jump-start tutorial in part 1 is really good idea the authors have done an appreciable job congrats on that.
