With the summer holidays coming to an end (sad).... and school about to start for a good portion of the population... it seems like the right time to give you a summary of all the IM books we've published this year so far... and those that are coming very soon.
I'm very proud of the number of books and the breadth of content that we covered this year... with quite a few more still on their way! I hope you are able to find one or two books that match your needs perfectly!
