after quite some time I'm returning to D being fed up with some
other languages to become more ready for writing open-source
multi-platform desktop app(s)...
I already own copy of Andrei's The D Programming Language book,
but never went fully through it, but I see in the meantime
Programming in D by Ali was released so I wonder:
a) how much is Andrei's book still relevant?
b) whether PiD is recommended one to start with D *today* ?
Btw, I prefer hardcopy books, if possible, and interested whether
there is plan to release PiD with hardcover since several
reviewers @Amazon reported that the glued used to bind the book
is not the best*
