  2. Just received your book from Amazon…goose bumps from just reading the intro…ashame I have to do other things besides just reading this book :(

  3. I’ve got the book but I can’t find how to download chapter 16! Any ideas please? I’ve been on wrox.com and registered with P2P but still can’t seem to find it anywhere. I’m told it’s a good chapter so would really like to get it.

    It’s a great book too, haven’t had the time to read cover to cover yet but it’s helped with a lot of stuff already.

    Great work!

  4. Wow, that is a really good question – I could have sworn it used to be on the book’s home page at Wiley.com, but I’m not seeing it there either. I’ll email Christian and ask.

    Wonder if you got anywhere with finding out how to download Chapter 16 of the book?


  6. Yes, just go to the Wiley site for our book and it’s listed in the download page. Thanks!
