What is a Rough Cut?
The Rough Cuts service from Safari Books Online gives you exclusive access to an evolving manuscript that you can read online or download as a PDF and print. A Rough Cuts book is not fully edited or completely formatted, but you'll get access to new versions as they are created.
If you prefer to pre-order a copy, amazon currently has the pre-order price set at $26.39... which is a 34% discount.
Either way, I'm sure you'll love the book as much as I do!
