Blatant plug alert! Using Moodle is now shipping from O'Reilly, Amazon and other fine online book retailers. It covers version 1.4.x, but most of it should be useful to teachers who are starting to use Moodle to teach.
Hope to use it to promote Moodle though.
The book will be a great help for our teachers when they return in a week. The only thing I've noticed that is missing is documentation on the messaging system. Any reason it wasn't included?
Have just ordered your Using Moodle book at Amazon but... I would also like to have the pdf file. Could we have a link to it?
Jason has kindly sent me the pdf files for Using Moodle. If it's ok with him then I'll add links in MoodleDocs.
You don't need to ask my permission to link to the PDF files under the terms of the creative commons license. But please feel free to link to them anyway.
When our front-desk person emailed the Moodle team about it, we had a run downstairs to get it. I got scratched and hurt... by Penny, who got there first No "fair game" over here when it comes to books.
Loud thanks to Jason and the fine O'Reilly people. I'll post a review soon(ish) in my Eduforge blog.
Most excellent. As I read this I am currently preparing a presentation that I will be giving at the League of Innovations conference in Atlanta, Ga. in March. The topic is called "Moodling Thru Technology". I really needed some tangible(or tactile) information on Moodle. I've ordered the book through O'Reilly and you can expect a good plug at the League conference.

Here is the link to the conference:
Can it be accessed online in full form? I want to pay for it, of course, and make it available to a the special education department at Sofia University in Bulgaria. I am in the process of setting up their website (www.specialedbulgaria.org).
Agreed. Those were the two areas that I had not already experimented with and now I am! Great book and it is now making the circuit of my colleagues.
