Not all mailing list software packages have excellent documentation or
FAQ's, and a lot of the information it takes to run a list isn't directly
related to the list software itself, but to other aspects of e-mail.
The first I'd heard of this particular book from O'Reilly was on this
list earlier this week. That's unusual because I generally receive
press releases from them, and have gotten review copies of several of
their Unix-related books.
I'm one of those who would buy most O'Reilly books sight unseen, (I own
about 40 of them), though I a bit skeptical of the ability to distill the
knowledge, wisdom, and patience it takes to be a successful list manager
into ANY book.
