More book excerpts on O'Reilly Site News
I forgot to mention this, but over the last two weeks, O'Reilly has put up a selection of my favorite hints from the new book -- one from each chapter. The first eight went up last week, and the second eight went online last night.

I took a bunch of new color screenshots just for the online articles, so in some ways, the articles actually look a bit nicer than the book (which is in grayscale).

I am debating -- read these 'spoiler' hints now, or wait until UPS delivers the book today?

Rob should offer a discount on the site subscription to those of us who buy his book.;=)

... the logistics of it would be quite complex -- how do I know who bought the book? Do you have to rip out a page and send it to me? Email me a digital photo of you holding the book and your driver's license? :-)

Also, the economics of the book industry (and my being a first-time author, no less) are such that if you really want to support the site, just donate and skip the book -- the donations are worth substantially more on a per-unit basis!

I've had the book for a while (pre-ordered from Amazon), and I've been reading it cover-to-cover. It's the best non-introductory OS X book yet.

Congrats!
