I'm interested in the fact the cover is different with the typical books of Manning. Is there some story there?


To be or not to be. It's a question.

Not really, we just didn't like the default Manning style all that much and asked if they could do just a simpler, more modern style cover.

Is that because the book has not yet appeared in print, and therefore has no cover?

I like the fact that the MEAP book cover plays well with the official Scala trademark's black and red color.

I was about to ask the same question Mr. Campbell asked. Hehe ;)
