Get A Free Copy Of Our New Book

0 comments suggest edit

AnthologyI just received a few advanced copies of our new book and am giving away three of them to the first three people who leave a comment on this post.

But there’s a catch!

You have to have a blog and promise to write a review on your blog. This is on the honor system so I’ll send you the book and you can then review it.

In your comment, leave your email address in the email field (it’s not visible to anyone else) and I’ll follow up to get your mailing address. Also let me know if you want it signed or not. Not sure why you’d want that, but you never know.

Found a typo or error? Suggest an edit! If accepted, your contribution is listed automatically here.

    This has got to be first time in which I have written a comment and am not sure what to say... Yes please, I would love to review your book!
    You need to be prepared to send it to Perth, Western Australia though.

    I suppose I have to now. ;)
    Well we have our three already. I just realized I should've posted this in the morning so that I'd be sending it to U.S. addresses. ;)

    You're lucky I saw your twit on my phone, and I was just starting my PC. Else you would have had to send one to the Philippines. :P

    If I buy your book and I send it to you, will you sign it, get Jeff and Jon to sign it, dedicate it to me, take a picture of it, post it on your blog and then send it back to me? Will you?
    Ok, I'm a fan (if that is applicable) of your, Jon and Jeff's blog. Next thing I'll be stalking people over the net...
    Keep up the great work, looking forward to seeing your book appear in Belgian stores (you are shipping to belgium too, right?).

    @Marlun - I recommend Fritz Onion's Essential ASP.NET series. And for those of you in the states, hit up for a book, if it's not too late already.

    You should put a link to the book in your sidebar. Either an Amazon affiliate link or just one to the Sitepoint site.

    I would love to review your book. I worked with your buds over at hiddennetwork for one of my larger projects. I also happen to be jumping off the ASP.NET bandwagon, onto greener - or I should say, redder - pastures, but wouldn't mind one last ride

    You can always buy the PDF (or the dead tree copy if that's your thing) over at the Sitepoint website. I'm going to download the sample chapters first. The table of contents wasn't that exciting. It sounds like what has already been rehashed in just about every other ASP.NET 2.0 book.

    It's obviously too late to get one of the review copies. However, this was an interesting post, and it's given me some ideas on how to get more reviews for the books I am promoting! Thanks.
