  1. a link to the book you are bitching about would have saved a lot of people a lot of confusion.
  2. Believe it or not, but I assume the majority of us don't own the book, nor are many of us either of the two people who wrote it, so not only can't we answer any of your questions with any certainty, we also can't magically guess what the URL listed in the back of the book is to look at it and possibly help you find the other examples you are looking for.
  3. After looking at some of the online "Sample Hacks" from the book, it appears that it is primarily a recipe book of re-usable code snippets, with very little text. As such, it doesn't seem like it would be prudent on their part to make all of the code examples from the book available online at a publicly accessible URL. (assuming they want to make some money).
  4. It doesn't have an animal on the cover because it is a "Hacks" book. All of the "Hacks" books have tools on the cover (which i just learned 28 seconds ago, by going to the book page to get info on it and clicking on the link).
