    Comments about oreilly Designing Bots:

    Great topical book! Not knowing anything about Bots and the whole Bot community, I really enjoyed reading this book. The book contains a lot of great pointers and informations, on everything from the history, the platforms, mockups, and so much more. Would definitely recommend.
