OpenSolaris Bible Samples

A comment on my last post noted that there were no
sample chapters available for the book, however I just
noticed that Wiley has posted some samples on the
book’s
webpage.

The samples include
chapter one,
the
index,
and the
detailed table of contents.

The index and TOC are probably the best sections for getting a feel for the
material in the book. This is actually the first time I’ve seen the index myself,
since it was produced after we finished writing and the final pages were nailed
down. I haven’t reviewed it closely yet, but at first glance it looks to be
pretty comprehensive at 35 pages. I’ve always thought that the index was
critical for a book like this. The detailed TOC is also useful for getting a sense of
the topics covered in each chapter.

    Great!
    Beside this: as I wrote my last comment there weren’t any excerpts on Wiley’s page. The index delivers the best overview.

    The links for Index and Table of contents are mixed up.
