LINQ in Action is now available as a paper book! You can order it now from Manning's website. It will become available in bookstores soon.

Re: Paper book now available!
When Do we receive our paperback copy of the book that I purchase as part of the early program? I had sent manning with this question and no reply from them.

Thanks!

Ben,

I sent an email to my internal contacts. Hopefully they'll get back to you shortly. I know Manning has received the printed books so I suspect you should be getting it very soon.

Cheers,
Steve

Hi Ben,

I just wanted to let you know your book has been shipped out.

As a reminder, there might be a 24 hour delay to your e-mail depending on when you send it.

Guys, just git my book.

It's B E A U T I F U L

Great job, Congrats. Even though I've read most of the eBook, but nothing is like a finished book. BTW, I was telling a group of developers at Code Camp about your book.

So, now that you know how to do a great job, what's next??? How about ADO.Net Data Services?

Thanks guys!

I don't understand, I wrote my review on Feb 9th on Amazon and still hasn't shown up! Huh...

I guess this is because it needs to be approved by Amazon. I would worry about it not showing up only if it's still not visible tomorrow.
In any case thanks a lot for posting a review. Much appreciated!

The review was positive and did not bash any other product or direct the buyer to another site or anything. So we'll see. In case if it does not show up, should I complain to Amazon or should it come from you, the author?

Ahh, finally!

There was a lot more to write about the book, but I thought it's best if it's spread by different reviewers. Anyway, you guys should be proud of what you have accomplished. Writing a book is very hard, I've done it before and won't do it again smilie
