Any feelings about this book?
Does anyone know anything about the Author?

I couldn't help myself, I ordered the book just to see the contents.
I'll report my thoughts after I receive and review the book.

Unfortunately thats the way it usually is. Bill Gates made his money from software (GWBASIC) that he didn't write. Money talks and bullsh*t walks.

The book release date is May 28th, 2010. I should have a copy in my hands early June. I'm hoping the book is not plagiarized from the manual and other CHDK Wiki documentation. That's the reason I was wondering if anyone was familiar with the Author, Berthold Daum? I take it that he is not one of the developers? (sometimes hard to tell with the names people chose to be known by).

Well in about a week I'll tell you if he's knowledgable or a plagiarist.

If he turns out to be a bad guy, perhaps he would deserve lots of one-star ratings on Amazon.
