can you tell us if your book will also include a PDF version ? Or perhaps the book in HTML format like "The Java Tutorial" ? I would love it if I could have a PDF "eBook" version of your book on my laptop so I can do a search on the whole contents, etc...

I doubt it, knowing what can happen to PDF files. Some publishers such as Manning published PDF versions of their books, but soon changed to password protected e-books which can be tied to the purchaser. Safari offer books online for a reasonable price, perhaps Andrew's publisher is one of the Safari partners. Some of the publishers on Safari offer the possibility of downloading PDF chapters of their books - appropriately watermarked to identify the member who has purchased them.
