Everyday Scripting with Ruby

by Željko Filipin


I was reviewer for Everyday Scripting with Ruby For Teams, Testers, and You by Brian Marick. Over two months ago I received an e-mail from Pragmatic Programmers saying that if I send them my mailing address they would send me a free copy. I replied with my mailing address, but the book did not arrive.

Two weeks ago I sent them a reminder. No reply.

There is a thread at wtr-general about the book and I asked if anybody had a similar experience. I thought that maybe there is a problem because I am from Europe. I got one reply. George from UK received his book two months ago.

Today I got e-mail from Pragmatic Programmers. They are looking into the problem, and they have sent me a PDF copy in the meantime.

There is even text "Prepared exclusively for Zeljko Filipin" at the bottom of each page. I am sure that it is there not only to make feel exclusive, but they got me smiling whenever I notice it. :)

Chapters that I reviewed were great and I look forward to reading the book.
