Great. I was looking for some IronPython books for our developers and
testers, I'll order a bunch.
When is it going to be available?

It is a mixture of both. The book aims to be as useful to .NET
programmers coming to Python as it is to Python programmers coming to
Chapter 2 is a Python tutorial.
Chapter 3 is an introduction to .NET interop including the basic .NET
Chapters 4-6 are on structured IronPython programming - introducing more
Python concepts (like lambdas and properties) along with .NET libraries
like Windows Forms, System.Xml and so on
The rest of the book covers specific topics - testing, advanced Python,
tricky corners of .NET interop, Silverlight, databases, ASP.NET, WPF
The final two chapters cover writing C# libraries for use from
IronPython and embedding IronPython in C#.
