how about a pocket-size book on each of those, sort of like a
TRW-pocket-series.

Mastering RegEx TRW
Mastering Unit Testing TRW
Mastering Metaprogramming TRW
....
Thinking like Guy Decoux TRW (w a detailed compilation of Guy's postings
:))

(the last one definitely i'd buy as long as Guy signs it :)

the advantage of this is that we can quickly produce more books in ruby

my big ruby books usuall sit on my shelf, but the pocket books always go
wherever i go :)

just a thought on why small is beautiful or less is more ;-)
