I don't know if you tried this before, but with great reviews like this, I'd have no problem
clicking a "Place order with Amazon" or something like that, giving you some referral money.

Maybe have a few options to differing parts of the world, i.e., I can't use the American, because I'd have to pay both American and European taxes then, so I always use (I'm from Denmark).

Actually, after reading a few lines of the article (including the author's name), I went
straight to and ordered the book.

I always find Val Henson's articles excellent, and the comments above just seem to
confirm her high opinion of the book. I'll soon have my own opinion of it ;-)

Thanks Val and all LWN commentators for such a great knowledge and experience
sharing. How can one live without LWN?

Many years ago, we had that kind of Amazon link. It never made all that much money, then we ended up pulling those links when the one-click patent stuff hit. One wonders if it might not be worth retrying at some point.

bookzilla in germany (append .de) doesnt hand out referral money, but 
donates a good deal of money to the free software foundation europe.

I don't buy from Amazon since the one-click patent, but the link may be useful for the more
