I’m one of the lucky ones to get a discount for the Smashing Magazine book. It’s already printed for me, and I’m expecting it to be delivered by the end of November. They’ve already postponed it three months and I guess it’s time for it to see the light.

The Smashing Book is a printed book about best practices in modern Web design. The book shares technical tips and best practices on coding, usability and optimization and explores how to create successful user interfaces and apply marketing principles to increase conversion rates. It also shows how to get the most out of typography, color and branding so that you end up with intuitive and effective Web designs. And lastly, you will also get a peek behind the curtains of Smashing Magazine.

They’ll surely increase their visitor base, RSS count and overall fans, by selling this book. I think it was a great effort, and I also think it will pay back if not already. They partnered with several sites and they are offering syndicated content, this meaning an average of three posts per day. That’s great. I just hope this move doesn’t dillute their quality.

Give us more next time, Smashing Magazine!
