It’s great that you are including exercises and solutions.

Different text books have different approaches to this but overall I think it helps if the solution is not immediately available with the Exercise so it is either at the end of, the chapter or in an appendix.

Sometimes the exercises are at the end of each chapter. With examples embedded in the chapter that relate to exercises.

Enjoying the book so far.

I agree with you -- I prefer solutions separated from the exercises so I'm not tempted to look until I've given the exercise an honest effort. Unfortunately, this is a Manning convention, and it seems like we're going to keep it this way.

The placement of the solutions immediately after the exercises is only for the MEAP. Our current plan is that the final published version will provide the solutions online as part of the LiveBook format.
