Thanks for your time putting this together!

Could cover your book in 3 days and go thru the examples.
I had many tries with TD, now finally with a decent computer and your book I feel enthusiastic about it!

No problem, it's still growing slowly! More to come.

Enjoy!

We've just finished transitioning the book to using GitBook. Some of the benefits:

- Uses Markdown instead of LaTeX, so should be easier for people to add/update it
- Because of Markdown, no LaTex build environment needed, just updating the Markdown files on the repo and GitBook handles recompiling everything.
- GitBook has a web readable version of the book that works on desktop and mobile
- GitBook not only creates a PDF, but also ePub and Mobi version of the book for e-readers and iPads

There's some more things we'll update to make for a better experience, like making the graphic elements a bit more friendly for printing and e-readers, etc etc.

Can still access via http://book.nvoid.com

Is this book available in another format? I'm allergic to LaTex.

The first post is a bit old now, so we're not using latex anymore. It's all in markdown and a service called GitBooks renders the markdown into a web readable version, pdf, epub, mobi, etc.

If you go to nettoyeur's link there's different reading options there.
