And here's how I know. Within 10 minutes of the Slashdot review of High Performance MySQL, many of them contacted me via IM, e-mail, and whatnot. It frightens me to think of how often they're reloading that page.
Anyway, the review is quite positive. I'm glad Steve liked the book and fully expected all the "MySQL SUCKS!" comments that appeared moments later. Apparently some nerds have an infinite capacity for fighting vi vs. emacs, mysql vs. postgresql, gnome vs. kde, and all those other stupid battles.
Oh, well. As long as half of them buy the book, I'm happy. :-)
