Perhaps due to David's humility he did not post this in its own thread. Many
of us enjoyed his excellent (and free) column 'charming python', which his
just-released book is based on. I think it's time for us to pay up :)
(I just ordered mine from Amazon)

Thanks Max. Which reminds me to announce that it is out:


After way too long, my occassionally plugged book, _Text Processing in
Python_ is actually printed and being sold in stores.  I think it looks
quite nice, decent paper, binding, and I am pleased by the typography
now that I've seen the real thing etc.  (I did the composition, but
somehow the bound volume is still a step past my laser printer pages).
My Amazon rank fell from 1.5 millionth to 100 thousandth already... a
runaway seller :-).

FWIW.  I am supposed to get 50 author's copies of the text (but my
publisher has seemed to drag their feet greatly on little details like
paying me--and delivering these copies).  When I get them, beyond a few
for friends and family, I'll sell the rest to the Pythonistas here (I
should be able to do a credit card via textbookx.com, where I have an
account; or send them to anyone who wants to pay me directly by
check).  I'll announce details when I wrestle the copies out of AW.

Yours, David...
