Due to a minor mix up at the end of an otherwise enjoyable
process, I wasn't notified that 'Learning D' was released on
Nov 27. Today, I finally got that notification. Despite there
already being a thread on the topic here in this forum, please
forgive me for taking the opportunity to make my "official"
'Learning D' is available from the publisher's website,
where a sample can also be viewed for those who want to try
before they buy. It's also available from Amazon.
Got "Learning D" as a present, still reading.

The content matches perfectly with the stuff I hadn't understood
Just like D it has a lot of value in small details, like "this"
template parameters, detailing opEquals, details on align, DVM
The chapter on Ranges is extremely helpful and should help
overcome my "range anxiety". Other chapter are similarly thorough
on Voldemort types or slices.
Really appreciate the attention to detail that went into it.
