Idioms and snippets are less valuable than the whole articles they
have in Lua Gems -- arguably snippets are discussion of standard
or recommended practice. They are also likely not purely the
creation of the author and much will be learned from elsewhere or
be identical to the work of others.
Maybe a better way is to put it like this: A cookbook has idioms,
snippets, best practices, design patterns (etc...) -- that has
already been said.
A cookbook can also be thought of as an immersion into the culture
of Lua -- and culture is a shared wealth of a community. True,
effort has been put in to produce a work and the work is of course
original. But much of it would be culture and practice put to
paper and one work is only a small part of the whole book.
Remember, Lua does not have aggressive branding, marketing and
evangelism like Ruby [on Rails] and a such book will likely not be
a best-seller. It's not like anyone is missing out on a million
