Hi all,

Writing a book on Racket is an idea that gets kicked around
occasionally. It would be a major undertaking, and so only viable if
there would be a reasonable return on investment[1]. To gauge the
market I've put together this short survey:


If you have some interest in a book on Racket I'd really appreciate
your response. Also feel free to blog etc. the survey.


[1] IIRC "Real World Haskell" sold circa 10K copies. If a book on
Racket sold about 2K copies it would be worthwhile if self published.
2K copies ~= £40K which is a reasonable return for the year or so it
would take to write.
