Early Release Titles for Review from O'Reilly

Media alert: April 23, 2012

Content that still has dew on it. Our "Early Release" program allows our customers to read about a new technology as it's emerging, often written by the very person who invented it. While we put the finishing touches on editing and design and the author is still writing, Early Release customers get the first taste of must-know info. We offer whatever has been submitted; the rest is downloaded for free once the entire book is done. Better yet, readers get a chance to interact with the author, catch errors, make suggestions, and just generally be an informed participant in the process.
