Red Panda is currently making the O’Reilly book by Brian Sletten – WebAssembly the Definitive Guide free to download (well, the price of your email address).

So why is worth snagging a download? Well, WebAssembly (Wasm) is the new way to deliver browser-based solutions to a client without having to develop with JavaScript. As a result, you have the chance to reuse more of your existing code. It also has the benefit of having been precompiled to a binary form, offering code security and compact download. But Wasm also has been seeing adoption in back-end server solutions as well, particularly for feature extensions, etc.
