Congratulations, all! You'll be in for some interesting and tough stuff.

But I have the Swift version of the book. Can you pass my copy to the next person on the list? Thanks.

Thank you very much for the book! So nice of you!
Do you recommend to read the paper version? I looooove paperbooks but for copy-pasting  programming purposes the e-book is better? And is it the crypted ebook we can get ?

Congratulation all four of you

DJ: ask for the paper copy; you will probably find a download code inside it, which will allow you to download the PDF without any more payment.

Sign up n the Manning website and get their daily email. You never know, you might be able to buy the book at a 50% discount. Wait a few weeks and see what happens. You can also get a preview of the book to allow you to decide whether to buy it.
