Chiradeep noted on irc today that the book is doing pretty well on amazon. Like
it or not the book and others that follow are going to lead people to us, and
provide exposure.

Perma-linking on the site, etc may be overkill, but a project blog post might be
nice. Not an endorsement, but simply an acknowledgement of it's existence.

Joe you have a good point.

I guess the best solution is to exclude any books from the site. If you want to
endorse a book, do it on your blog.

Fair to everyone. Good book will be noticed on amazon (or elsewhere) and
praised by readers. We don't need to endorse good or bad books, neither do we
have to spend our time reviewing them and/or be responsible for any mistakes,
or hurt someone's feeling for not choosing their book.

Best option in my opinion is to be neutral.

Well summarized Ilya.

I'm +1 on what Ilya is suggesting WRT the site itself.

I think that we should feel free to highlight it in our project blog though... we selectively note blog posts of interest there, as well as (for example) events like the upcoming ShapeBlue training courses. So we are already implicitly doing a little bit of editorial selection in that communication channel (with the goal of highlighting things we think might be of interest to readers).
