As a “director” of a small (French) book collection called “Technique & Pratique”, I am proud to announce that 9 new books are published and available in (French) bookshops since a few days ago. English translation of some of these books is a work in progress.
This collection aims to produce cheap (less than $10) and short (128 pages) books, to learn efficiently what there is to know about a given subject (Installing Linux, LaTeX, Perl, etc.) and actually get started real fast.
More info and covers images are available here.
Here’s a picture of these books on a table :
