No, I believe all of the source code is avaliable online. If you have trouble, just send one of us an email, we'll be happy to ship you a tar ball or zip file.
And, many thanks for the warm welcome....

We were remiss in this instance. Changing forums, poeple doing new jobs and so on. Do we have enough excuses yet. This book is going to be reviewed and posted on the bunkhouse.

Welcome. I've been checking out the book on Amazon. It looks really good.
I hope I win, but if I don't I'll break down and buy a copy. I've had good luck with SAMS books.

I am just now planning to learn/use Ant in a project at a job I just started. Is this book good for learning the basics?
