R

Bruno Rodrigues is working on a book that hits two of my favorite topics:

The book I’ve been working on these pasts months (you can read about it here, and read it for free here) is now available on Leanpub! You can grab a copy and read it on your ebook reader or on your computer, and what’s even better is that it is available for free (but you can also decide to buy it if you really like it).

Looks like I have a book to add to my queue.
