Just started reading the book and found it to be excellent! I am new to Groovy and this book surely will be my "go to" resource.

I noticed a couple of formatting problems in listing 2.4. The tail end of the comment wraps around and merges with the next line of code.
Here is an example.

groovyBook.setTitle('Groovy conquers the world') // #2 Property use with
explicit method assert groovyBook.getTitle() == 'Groovy conquers the world'
// #2

This makes the code hard to read and understand. I hope you can fix these issues.

Thanks for you kind words!

The typesetting of listings was somehow mangled in some MEAP releases.
Sorry for that (but it was not under our control anyway...)

As the we're nearing completion, the typesetting will follow the excellent Manning standard, again.

Thanks a lot for posting
