I don't normally pimp O'Reilly products, but this one is pretty cool.
It's a service called Rough Cuts that gives you early access to
unpublished (electronic) manuscripts.
It's useful if you're interested in a cutting-edge technology that has
scant documentation. Ruby* on Rails is a case in point: lots of
people are using it, even in production, but the O'Reilly book is not
out yet. But it is one of the pilot Rough Cuts titles (
http://www.oreilly.com/roughcuts/ ). Also of interest are _Perl
Hacks_ and _AJAX Hacks_).
Unfortunately there's no freebie deal for Perl Mongers. :/ However,
the pricing is cheap by O'Reilly standards, in keeping with the
work-in-progress nature of the product.
* Yes , this is a Perl Mongers group, but I'ver decided Ruby is an
alternate spelling of Perl.
