Actually, there is another bonus -- if you notice a title on Rough
Cuts that you're sure you'll want the final printed version of, you
can place an advance order at a steep discount (approx. 1/3 off in
all 4 current rough cuts titles) for just the final printed version,
when it is released. The bundled option gives you both for barely
more than the cost of the finished book at full suggested retail, but
be clear, you do have the advanced purchase discount only option in
addition to paying for the un-edited text option.
If you're in a hurry to see the new O'Reilly titles or are sure
you'll want one of them a ways in advance, this seems like a great
program to me.
