Thank you for being here! I hope you’ve enjoyed Beautiful Racket so far.
This book has no ads. It’s supported by readers like you. If the need for this is unclear, please see why you should pay.
These options are one-time payments for the web-based book you see here. There’s no PDF or paperback delivered after purchase. At checkout, you can pay with credit card (via Stripe) or PayPal.
Choose the payment level that suits you best:
If you enjoyed this book, worked through some tutorials, and learned a few things, then $39 is a completely fair price for your new knowledge, and comparable to what you’d pay for a printed book.
In addition to giving the book an extra turbo boost, you get a one-person license for Triplicate, the monospaced font—designed by me, of course—which is used throughout this book for code samples. Triplicate is $89 by itself, so Super Deluxe is a sweet deal at $99.
You have four roommates. You’re surviving on ramen. I get it. But tuition isn’t free either, right? Let’s split the difference. At $19, this is half the amount of the Basic payment. A small investment now; a lifetime to reap the benefit.
If you’re a professor or other teacher who wants to use this book in a class—either as recommended or assigned reading, or as a source of examples and explanations—then this is the right payment. Because your students aren’t going to kick in anything. And $149 is still cheaper than a single copy of most hardcover textbooks.
If you’re a corporate engineering manager who wants to use this book to help your team with training, inspiration, or “driving strategic outcomes”, then spending $299 is an excellent way to share your success.
Do any of these describe your company?
A billionaire founder
Wildly expensive and unnecessary office improvements
Daily catered vegan lunches
Then you’re acclimated to the best of everything. So why not support this book at $999, and join the elite, visionary few. We both deserve it.
Yes. The sans serif used for body text and headings is Concourse. The slab serif used for subheads is Advocate. Like Triplicate, I designed them, and they can be licensed separately through practicaltypography.com.
If none of these options will work, you can reach me at email@example.com to propose an alternate plan. I will try to be open-minded. In return, I ask that you be reasonable—I’m afraid I can’t specially accommodate those who want to pay $5 (or €5, or 5 anything).
