Hi,

I am thinking of buying the book for my Kindle (6"), but not sure how well the mobi version will look on it.

So, is it possible to download mobi samples of the book? Currently, there are only pdf samples on the book's page.

Re: Mobi Samples
Hi,

Good question - I haven't seen a mobi version of my book (or any other Manning book, for that matter), so I'm afraid I can't answer your question.

Personally, I use a Kindle DX and the PDF versions for tech books, so I don't even a guess as to how good the mobi versions work on a Kindle.

I would suggest that you address this question to Manning support at support@manning.com - I would hope that they can get you a sample or at least a definite answer.

And I do hope you buy the book! smilie

Cheers,
Vern

Re: Mobi Samples
Support informed me that no .mobi samples were available.

So I purchased the electronic bundle, and for those who are interested in reading the book on Kindle 6": Though the code samples look a bit odd, generally it is not so hard to read.
