Subject: IDUG RUGs: review copies from IBM Press

Hello RUG Leader,

I am writing to you as a user group liaison from publisher IBM Press
(www.ibmpressbooks.com < http://www.ibmpressbooks.com/ > )

I have recently been in touch with IDUG's Michael McBride regarding some
of our new book releases from the past several months, and he suggested
I check in with you directly to determine your interest in any of the
below titles.

If any of these topics speak to the interests of your members/group,
please let me know and I will plan to ship you a review copy in support
of your upcoming meetings.
Many thanks, Heather Fox
