Thought this was going to be about someone who was self-taught in under a year until I saw that part.
Dev Bootcamp is an amazing program and pretty much guarantees you a job if you make it through (at least from what I've heard). But it's only in San Francisco, and they take what, 20 people every few weeks? Not exactly a path that everyone can follow...
Edit: Just realized this was posted by the author, so here's my concern: Considering the fact that you went through a fairly intense 9-week program taught by several experts, how can we be confident your book is useful to beginners who lack that option? The excerpt on your page seems more like a promo for programming/entrepreneurship -- it doesn't tell much about the book or add to your credibility as someone who could teach people to program.
That said, Dev Bootcamp is not a necessary condition for learning to code. If you have a specific learning style, especially if you're good at reading books, you can learn on your own, although it might take longer. If you do well with networking, personal branding, build a few projects, and contribute to the open source community, you can get the same result.
I cover all these options in my book, including Hacker Schools all around the world and a lot of online class and resources that are completely free.
That being said, you might want to at least provide a sample of your writing from the book for people to look at.
The recipe to success is ancient and predominantly hard work, focus, and dedication. While there might be other factors in one's success, they are minimal compared to the three that I listed.
Why is this spam on HN? Why is this person credible to ask $10 for his book, sight unseen? There are plenty more credible sources with stories to share. OP could perhaps be credible, if he wrote and shared a bit first.
I clicked to read because I followed a similar path to the author, except I never attended any kind of bootcamps. I started writing my first django app and one month later I had my first coding job.
It was difficult at first, I was often baffled by the intentions of the codes author who I took over for, but I made the product work and it changed my life forever. I just started coding professionally January 15th of this year and already I've fixed and enhanced two large complicated projects and built two of my own.
So anyone saying this isn't possible is absolutely wrong.
I recommend watching Google's Python Class  for anyone getting started with Python that has a familiarity with basic programming concepts.

College should not be considered a place where you go to get a better job. It used to be that way, but some major problems like grade inflation and the simple fact that a greater percentage of the just-graduated-highschool population is going in to college means that a degree doesn't distinguish you as much as it used to. But there are still major benefits, including lifelong friendships, intellectual stimulation, and learning tertiary skills that are required to be a "well-rounded" person".
 Back-of-envelope calculation: $100,000 tuition for an average $1,000,000 increased lifetime earning means that college ROI is about 10x not counting the time-value of money. $10,000 dev school plus personal investment for (let's say) a $40k/yr salary increase over a 25 year career is also $1,000,000, for an ROI of 100x.
