Where is the free PDF?
@ Don -- I found myself asking the same question. It looks like the model has changed.
Coming from the P&P team, and with authors like Steven Toub and Ade Miller, this is sure to be a great addition to any .NET developer's toolbox. My copy will be on order shortly!
P&P group did wonderful job of providing guidance on various Microsoft technologies. Earlier (10 years back) such guidance was missing and the programmer community was not using the MS technologies effectively leading to substandard implementations. This also hampered the reputation of MS technologies. By providing best in class, FREE, easily download-able guidance P&P closed a BIG gap. After such a good job - Why P&P is trying be Wrox or Manning by selling the guidance?
@ Carl -- I haven't made my way through it yet, but I like that it's scenario-based.
@ One -- I know what you mean. There was a lot of power in the free PDFs and they helped package up the story and made it broadly available in a simple way.
