I'm a little curious as to what it contains!

Huh, that's interesting...
Is this a Ranorex authorized or contributed book? The web information sure is light on the details!

Hm, other books by that publisher said:
Product Description
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online....
That's strange. There is not much info on Wikipedia about Ranorex...

No, it is definitely not.

I just did a short Internet research on the authors and the publisher: It seems that the author "writes" about 100.000 books a year by printing Wikipedia articles - they have books on everything, not just Ranorex. I have no clue how they make a 128 page book out of a 200 words article and I don't know the contents of the book, but I would not buy a book if I can easily browse its contents on Wikipedia :wink:

Actually, I'm so curious now that I might order the book - I can safely return it anyway if I don't like it :)

Please, if you do order it, let us know what it contains. I'm sure I could write a book about Ranorex trials and tribulations that would have much more meat than, as you said, filling 128 pages with 200 words...

Maybe it has lots of pictures!
