Just got home from the office to find my proof copy of the new book waiting for me on the doorstep. Fortunately, it was neatly shrink-wrapped and safely tucked into a cardboard box. At first glance everything looks good. Of course, I'll have to take some time and go through it thoroughly. But, if that goes OK it's just a matter of time before the digital download is available and the book can be ordered online. Woohoo!
My first impression is that the cover looks even better than I expected. The overall quality of the book seems very good. It's softcover and the binding is very sharp. Inside, the layout looks as I had expected.
Hopefully everything is OK and I can approve this thing. Here's a snap I took with the MBP's iSight cam.
