Magic Cap Programmer's Cookbook

"The integration of practical samples, addressing questions developers are bound to ask, and continual emphasis on Magic Cap UI design make it simply fantastic. Count me in for several copies; whenever someone starts working in my vicinity, I usually teach them some Magic Cap programming basics. With this book, I'll just be able to loan them a copy and they will have packages up and running in a few hours."

--Josh Carter, General Magic Developer Technical Support
