  1. Cool! When is the book coming out?

  2. On another note: Why is the number of pages / articles so much smaller that in the previous instances of shaderx / gpu pro? I'm not meaning to cry before the book is actually out, but from the biblio-data i've seen, the new one will only have 470 pages, correct? If you really received a ton of great proposals as you claim, why don't you take another 10 articles in?
