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.
Being 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.
