I for one would be more interested in an advanced/expert book with snipplets/tricks/tips...

I think I won't enter this giveaway to make sure a beginner get that book ... I don't think it would be of much help for me ;)

I've just been getting into Irrlicht as of several weeks ago, so this looks like a valuable resource. The whole product description looks great, but I think I'll specifically be most interested in any code samples or working examples in the book. Irrlicht's documentation is decent, but I expect this book will be much better to learn from.

Hello! I'm a software engineer student in Hungary. I'm fond of the Irrlicht engine because of it's simplicity. I'm writing my thesis project about terrain rendering using the Irrlicht engine. It is neccessary for my BSc degree at the end of this term. I have 6 days left to finish it, so I would be especially greatful for a copy of the new book in an eBook format. I have tried to figure out everything using the API and the forums, where you might have met my topics, but it was very difficult, so I could really make good use of your descriptions of how to do things as they were intended to at the first place. For me the most interesting topics would be the use on different platforms, building and manipulating terrain, casting shadows, creating reflections and deploying applications. Thanks! :)
