Manning authors know their stuff because
they’re plugged into their communities–blogging,
speaking, and, of course, coding. Our job is to take all
the experience earned by our busy authors and turn it
into books that will save you time. Here’s a glimpse at
the recent activities of three Manning authors, along
with an opportunity to add some great books to your
