Well, it's still on the Waterstones site atm, but I'd appreciate it if

It's part of a kind of deal that we struck. She agreed to listen to my
suggestions if I stopped slagging her off in public :)

My current target is "Open Source Linux Web Programming" by
Christopher Jones and Crew Batchelor. You can see my review of _that_
