Book: Getting Started With Fluidinfo

I wrote a book, with my friend and colleague Nicholas Tollervey (@ntoll). It’s published by O’Reilly Media and is available both as a printed tome and a DRM-free, multi-format electronic book direct from O’Reilly. If you use the code AUTHD at checkout, you can get a discount, as described here:


The book is also available from Amazon.com, Amazon (UK), Waterstones, Barnes & Noble and all good booksellers, even local ones staffed by real people who love books. Ordering direct from O’Reilly is probably quickest and lets you use the discount code.

All O’Reilly “animal” books come be known by the species on their covers: the rather striking animal on our cover is “a jellyfish-like animal of the genus Stephalia”, and you can read all about it in the book’s Colophon. The image is from Lydekker’s Royal Natural History.

For avoidance of doubt, the animal appearing on this work is real. Any resemblance to fictitious persons, animals or deities, is purely coincidental.

It is acceptable to refer to the book as “The Jellyfish Book” or the “The Stephalia Book”, but definitely not “The Flying Spaghetti Monster Book”.
