How do you feel that a huge number of potential buyers gets your book today for free?
As to getting the book for free, please do. I have something even more interesting in the works. I would love for you to read my book, get excited about Solr, get on my mailing list http://www.solr-start.com/ and pay me for my next project eventually.
The authors usually do not get rich of the books (though I did cover my tiny advance and more). The rest of the conclusions is left as an exercise for the reader.
I got "Building Machine Learning Systems with Python".
It's a concise, very fast introduction to doing stuff with the Clojure Incanter library. Combined with LightTable, it's very fun.
So whomever is running 27 simultaneous downloads, please stop. You'll never read all those books.
It's more like a complementary documentation database.
EDIT — Worked like a charm. Thanks much!
Honestly most of these books are on topics that would make them obsolete quite soon. The real practical use for these is as references across several topics. I understand it's hard to monetise that kind of thing though.
I guess it's the Hacker News effect.
Move along folks, move along now.
got a few books though.
