Absolutely agree with this. It is totally Zach's prerogative. Doesn't
make me stop wishing that there was a sample chapter available for
free, though. $39 seems like a lot to plunk down sight unseen. For
this reason alone, I'll be holding back.

Contrast this with the fact that I just this morning bought "Your Code
As a Crime Scene" from Pragpub based on reading a couple of sample
pages.
