Pressed and Ready

I received word from a former neighbor that I had a UPS package delivered to our old address. Today I picked it up (luckily just a few blocks away), and it turned out to be my author copies of Web Standards Solutions.

stack o' booksBeing able to physically thumb through the book is very surreal. The results of a better part of a year are finally printed and ready for consumption. I couldn’t be happier with the way everything turned out. And I’m sure this means they’ll be shipping any day now from Amazon, and will hopefully start appearing in bookstores.

A single book can never be all things to all people, but I have high hopes for this little book. I hope that people enjoy it, as well as find it useful. It was fun to write and a gigantic learning experience.

As a teaser, here are a few of my favorite (yet corny and ridiculous) subheadings from the book:

  • Wrapper’s delight
  • Totally tabular
  • Worth its (font-)weight in bold

There are more of course… some better, mostly worse.

So if you haven’t ordered yet, now’s a good time to do so, as the wait won’t be long at all.
