Nick Ramirez announced today the availability of a new book focusing on Windows Installer XML authoring. I can’t say I’ve read it yet ( other then skimming the first chapter that’s available online for free. ) but I’m going to go out on a limb and say everyone should go ahead and buy it. To put my money where my mouth is, I just ordered it myself.
I don’t know if I’m doing Nick any favors or not but here’s the way I see it. Let’s be honest, how often do we see a new book on installers? Once every 5 – 10 years is my guess. Leslie Easter and Phil Wilson’s books were fine but they are very, very old. So just on that alone I give Nick’s new book a buy rating.
Seriously, apx $50 ($10 if you are into eBooks ) is chump change when it comes to investing in training. So either break out your credit card right now or go on down to your boss and ask him to sign off on it and let’s show Nick that his work is appreciated.
Then feel free to come back here and post your reviews of the book as comments.
