A book on Racket?

A book on the Racket programming language Is being proposed by a potential author. He would 'greatly appreciate answers to this survey:'

He dropped this link on reddit and 'Ask HN' looking for feedback, but I'm keen on the idea myself, and I thought post it as the readers here would have read a PL book or two.

He is also tracking the forums:
• Ask HN: Would you like to see a book on Racket?
• Interested in Racket? Want to see a book on it? Fill out this survey.

I was joking too, of course.

This may have been mentioned on Reddit or HN already, but I'm too lazy to check…

Greenspun's Ninth:

Life is short. How could I justify working on a tech book when I could be aspiring to if not actually creating art?
