Breaking Up The Monolith: coming at last
by Matthew Wilson
October 22, 2010
Summary
Yesterday, after four years of vacillation and procrastination and occasional modification, I finally got the preface of my next book, Breaking Up The Monolith: Advanced C++ Design Without Compromise, into a form with which I'm happy. Eight pages in four years; at that rate the full book will take me 150 years!

Obviously I'm planning on getting on with things at a much higher rate. In fact, I've got about 50% of it written already (although I'll doubtless re-work those parts for freshness).

Over the next few days I'll be talking to the editor and contacting all those kind, smart folks who've previously agreed to be a reviewer. As soon as things are sorted, I'll start posting what bits I can, probably starting with the book's Manifesto and Preface.

Watch this space ...
