Is it just me or does the free sample link just show the first two paragraphs of each section, which are available for every section in the book? Would be nice if a whole section or two were made available.

If you create an account, you can read more of it online. I realize not everyone would want to do that. There was a discussion about releasing Chapter 3 as a free sample and publishing Chapter 6 in the 'articles' section on their site. I've asked my editor what's going on with that, as I can't find any links for either.

OK, Chapter 6, 'Understanding Ranges' is available at [1]. They've edited it a bit to make it work as an article, so it isn't exactly as it appears in the book, but it's close enough.

Chapter 3, 'Programming Objects the D Way' is available as a sample from the book page at [2] *if* you are not logged in *and* you do not have a cookie cached. If you are logged in, you see a 'Read Online' button, but it's 'Free Sample' if you are not. If you have a cookie cached, clicking 'Free Sample' will log you in and take you to the same place as 'Read Online'. Otherwise, it will take you to the same web app, but will allow you to only read Chapter 3.
