In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. But, in practice, there is.

I am thinking how a book about coding 1K hires would be.
I ranked the games in kind of routine and then how you could code them yourself.

The link for italian store. I think all can be reached just replacing ".it" with the appropriate nation...

UPDATE:

After having my own book I found some errors in layout and in text.

I updated the book so if you buy it now you will get a bit altered version.
If you have it... you have the first printed version that will never be released again.

Price remains the same even when the printing costs go up on 20 june.

I started a book about actual coding 1K, both low and hires, but that will still take some time

AND... I will neeed someone native english speaking to find flaws in text and sentences (prereading before publishing).
