Apress Introduces "betaBooks,"
Early-Bird Version of Select Titles in Popular PDF eBook Format

New Apress betaBooks are piping hot: they give you access to the newest programming topics straight from the author, by way of weekly PDF chapters and updates, all before the final printed versions roll off the press. An advantageous 8 weeks before the book's final publication-and largely before competing books on the topic are released-the first several chapters of an Apress betaBook become available. After that, available updates or new chapters are delivered weekly to your inbox. Apress plans to publish betaBook versions of select titles across multiple technologies to suit every programming professional.

You may purchase betaBooks where you purchase other eBooks, in the Apress eBookshop at www.apress.com. These betaBooks are a bargain since the price includes a copy of the entire finished eBook. And of course, the regular printed version of the book will be for sale at your favorite online or brick-and-mortar bookstore. At this time, betaBooks aren't intended to solicit reader feedback or shape a final book. Instead, the main function of a betaBook is to honor the adage, "Timing is everything," and give you two-month leverage on technology that may prove crucial to your career success.

betaBooks are important because
* betaBooks deliver cutting-edge material 8 weeks before the final book releases
* New chapters and updates arrive quickly and easily to your inbox
* They're a great deal, giving you a time advantage plus a finished product
* betaBooks will be published across multiple technologies
