Why? Well, I'm hoping the results will encourage other people to download this book.

If you've only just discovered this site, you may not know what I'm talking about, so here goes.

You can find out what people have said about the book here. That's just a sample; loads of people have commented positively about it, and it was last mentioned (to my knowledge) in a presentation by Cathy Jo Nelson earlier this evening. (by the way, that looks like a great presentation, and includes some websites I haven't come across before, so I'm looking forward to exploring them, and maybe you would too: take a look!)

By the way, this book is free! (Did I mention that already?) There's a link to it at the bottom of this page.

And now for some up-to-date stats (22:45 UK time on 2nd October 2010):

The Myebook version has been read 3,009 times.

The Slideshare version has been read 1,046 times.

The Scribd version has been read 1,426 times.

The YouPublish version has been read 213 times.

It has been downloaded at least 19,085 times.

Why do I say "at least"? Because I don't know how many times it's been downloaded from other people's websites, or how many times it's been distributed on USB sticks or via VLEs.

I'm thinking about writing a blog post about why I embarked on this project in the first place. Do you think that would be of interest? Either leave a comment or drop me an email.
