Pretty neato! Seems like everyone is busy around here doing stuff. Always nice to see someone come out with a book project. Smile

Thanks guys Smile

And yeah, I started working for Big Nerd Ranch about three years ago - 6 months or so before Rocco left, so I did get a chance to meet him. He actually was part of the interview process since we were both IDG members.

Thanks... I was also a bit surprised not to see the table of contents on Amazon.

I did notice that the BNR forums contain the list of chapters as well:
