Apress Introduces "betaBooks,"
Early-Bird Version of Select Titles in Popular PDF eBook Format

New Apress betaBooks are piping hot: they give you access to the newest 
programming topics straight from the author, by way of weekly PDF 
chapters and updates, all before the final printed versions roll off the 
press. An advantageous 8 weeks before the book's final publication-and 
largely before competing books on the topic are released-the first several 
chapters of an Apress betaBook become available. After that, available 
updates or new chapters are delivered weekly to your inbox. Apress 
plans to publish betaBook versions of select titles across multiple 
technologies to suit every programming professional.

You may purchase betaBooks where you purchase other eBooks, in the 
Apress eBookshop at These betaBooks are a bargain since the 
price includes a copy of the entire finished eBook. And of course, the 
regular printed version of the book will be for sale at your favorite 
online or brick-and-mortar bookstore. At this time, betaBooks aren't 
intended to solicit reader feedback or shape a final book. Instead, the 
main function of a betaBook is to honor the adage, "Timing is 
everything," and give you two-month leverage on technology that may prove crucial 
to your career success.

betaBooks are important because
* betaBooks deliver cutting-edge material 8 weeks before the final book 
* New chapters and updates arrive quickly and easily to your inbox
* They're a great deal, giving you a time advantage plus a finished 
* betaBooks will be published across multiple technologies
