My latest book, “Sams Teach Yourself Regular Expressions in 10 Minutes”, is now available and shipping. This new title is modeled on my best-selling “Sams Teach Yourself SQL in 10 Minutes”, is targeted at the same audience, and follows the same format and pace of study. Checking in at a svelte 150 pages, this is a highly compact, and very readable title. “Sams Teach Yourself Regular Expressions in 10 Minutes” will teach you the regular expressions that you really need to know, starting with simple text matches and working up to more complex topics, including the use of backreferences, conditional evaluation, and look-ahead processing. You’ll learn what you can use, and you’ll learn it methodically, systematically, and simply by using clear and practical examples and solving real problems – all in lessons that will each take 10 minutes or less to complete. Includes coverage of Perl, ColdFusion, ASP, Java, .NET, JavaScript, and more. Details at http://www.forta.com/books/0672325667/. Enjoy!

  2. This is a much needed title for any developer– elitist or not. 😉 In seriousness, I wish I had this book last week for a proj I’m working on. MSDN and .NET documentation can be very overwhelming.

  3. Oh i want this book, desperately…
