Aaand it’s this time of the year again. In a few weeks, I will be off to France to see my family, eat delicious food cooked by my mom and open the presents under the tree. Along the way I will probably gain a few kilos/pounds that I will lose thanks to New Year’s resolutions. Basically, another year coming to its end.
But enough with the future, you’re probably more interested in the present. Well, I’m happy to announce that my two books, Master Ruby Web APIs and Modular Rails, are now on sale!
Until Tuesday (November 29) at 09:00 AM EST, you will be able to get any of the packages at a reduced price. If you’re interested by one of them, I’d recommend not lingering around too much because there’s a trick. Keep reading to find out.
Here are the links to the book pages if you just want to go check them out right away:
What’s the trick?
That’s the fun part. I don’t just want to do a discount of 30% for the next 5 days (boriiiing) so I’m going to try something new. There will be three different discounts: 50%, 40% and 30%.
For the first 12 hours of the sale (a bit more actually), you will be able to get 50% off. For the following 24 hours, it will go down to 40%. Finally, it will come down to 30% and stay there until the end.
Here’s a summary:
- 50% Off until 09:00 PM EST, 25 November 2016
- 40% Off until 09:00 PM EST, 26 November 2016
- 30% Off until 09:00 AM EST, 29 November 2016
The earlier you buy, the less you pay!
If you’re interested but would like to give it a try for free, why not head to the books pages and grab the free samples? Or keep reading and find out why now is the best time to buy.
Why buy Modular Rails now?
Well, I’m currently writing the new edition of Modular Rails and if you purchase now, you will have access to the new version for free! This new edition will be updated for Rails 5 and include new topics asked for by the readers of the first edition.
Why buy Master Ruby Web APIs now?
Once the second edition of Modular Rails is out, I will go back to Master Ruby Web APIs. The book has grown too much to my liking, so the first thing I’m going to do is split it into 4 different books (with new content added and some rewritten). Each one of them will be sold separately at a lower price, but the combined price will be higher than the current price of Master Ruby Web APIs. Every person who purchased the book will get these new books for free! And since it’s currently on sale, you won’t get a better deal.
What if you don’t like it?
I always offer a 100% money back guarantee for the first 30 days. It leaves you enough time to dig in and see if you like it or not. If you realize it’s not for you, you send me an email and I refund your purchase right away - no hard feelings.
What past readers have to say about the books
Francois van der Hoven on Master Ruby Web APIs
I really enjoyed reading this well-researched book on APIs. I have learned so much from the examples and explanations and will use this book in future as a reference guide.
Florent Guilleux on Master Ruby Web APIs
A very good book about API implementation. All key concepts are covered and illustrated with examples. It is thorough and easy to follow, highly recommended!
@FredAtBootstrap on Master Ruby Web APIs
Read half of it in two days! If you develop REST APIs in Ruby you must read this.
Alvin on Modular Rails
I got modular rails because I was interested in moving from a monolithic app and interested in advancing my knowledge of intermediate to advanced rails. As a guy who teaches at a bootcamp, there comes a time when you want students to move from the usual CRUD nonsense and on to proper software architectural patterns even in the context of a framework. I shared the table of contents with a colleague of mine from the US and he too agreed that this book was the deal. Can’t wait to get more from the author.
Simon Bonnard on Modular Rails
As a classic Rails developer who never had the opportunity to experience the joy of modularity, Modular Rails helped me dive into the subject and start to build from scratch my first modular application. This book definitely fills a much needed gap in Rails literature.

I don’t have anything else to say here… check the books pages for more information :)
