Hello All : Just my two cents worth here: Mat Bettinson wrote: (regarding "Rebol the Official Guide"_

Tim here: I must respectfully differ with Matt's opinion here. His opinion provides *no* real information as to the content of Elan's book, nor does he do any credit to the enormous amount of work that went into it. If you want to learn how to put together a distributed database system using rebol , AND learn rebol at the same time - this is for you. But it will take some time, and is for the serious student of both rebol AND database programmer. Rebol the Official Guide is a book for the advanced and needs advanced discipline. "Rebol for Dummies" may be for the less adbanced. If I were to make a recommendation to some who wished to earn money with rebol, then I would recommend both books above, as well as the PDF and this mailing list. Regards Tim
