I’m pleased to announce that the book site now has real content! We’ve published the first handful of draft chapters for public review.
Service updates, most recent first:
- 2008-01-21 18:00 PST: load problems resolved. Thanks for bearing with us!
- 2008-01-21 12:00 PST: the server is being hammered at the moment. If you’re having trouble accessing pages, or submitting comments, it might be best to wait a bit for the load to settle down. Sorry! This is mostly a good problem for us to have
Our internal reviewers have already provided over 2,250 comments on the first drafts that we wrote. To those reviewers: thank you! Today’s chapters include many major revisions as a result of your thoughtful feedback.
The book has an integrated comment system; please use it to tell us what you think. We’d love to know about every detail you think we should improve upon: more appealing examples, better descriptions, clearer wording, you name it.
We’ll periodically add new chapters and revise existing drafts. When we do, I’ll post a note here.
Thanks for your impatience and enthusiasm. We’re excited to finally be sharing our work with you!
