O’Reilly today announced the release of Applescript: The Definitive Guide, 2nd Edition. “I had never seen the AppleScript language taught, explained, and documented in what I would regard as a clear, rigorous, and helpful way,” says author Matt Neuburg. So he did it himself. Neuburg’s new book presents AppleScript as a programmer, a student, and a thinker would learn it. The 592-page book is completely revised and fully updated to cover Mac OS X 10.4 and AppleScript 1.10. Applescript: The Definitive Guide, 2nd Edition carries a suggested retail price of US$39.99.
