I am looking forward to getting this book. For anyone interested in what is this book about, here is its description:

Rust in Action is a hands-on guide to systems programming with Rust. Written for inquisitive programmers, it presents real-world use cases that go far beyond syntax and structure. You’ll explore Rust implementations for file manipulation, networking, and kernel-level programming and discover awesome techniques for parallelism and concurrency. Along the way, you’ll master Rust’s unique lifetimes model for memory management without a garbage collector.

Also, this reddit post has more information + testimonials

Thank you for this book. I bought it few months ago and even though I just glanced through it I found it as a very useful addition to Rust's The Book.
