MUD Server - Questions and interest in a book.

Luckily, I did another search on the forums before posting and found the answer to my question. I''d still like info on the book mentioned below. While I was browsing the boards I ended up reading the review on the book MUD Game Programming. Has anyone bought or read this? I''m interested in it, but I don''t want to buy it if it explains the same code I already have. Any opinions on the book are welcome. Thanks.

I've read it. I thought it was pretty good. It explains the creation of two different MUDS. The first the author calls "SimpleMUD" and the other he calls "BetterMUD" (original huh?). It's a little redundant in places because BetterMUD just describes an improved SimpleMUD. One of the things I found especially helpful was the cross-platform multithreading library and network API. Another nice feature of BetterMUD is that the author uses embedded Python to implement dynamically loaded logic modules.

I''ll agree with bpopp''s words on the book. All in all, I''d say it is a great buy for one interested. (And you''d have to give us an idea as to what you''ve done if you want a detailed response as to where it might conflict/help etc.) Cheers.
