Dear Mark,

It's only $29.19 on Amazon for the pre-order paperback, and they have a 
price guarantee that, if the price drops before it is printed (a bit 
unlikely in this case, I guess), you automatically get the lower price.


Still, this beats the buy 2 get 1 free pricing on O'Reilly itself.

By the way, for the e-book, I'm sure we'll get this in Safari bookshelf 
through Purdue libraries if people want to read it electronically, at 
least while connected to the web.
