Hi Kathy / Bert

Is this book due for release ? If so, when ? After three excellent books
on JAVA, a book on Design Patterns would be an icing on the cake .

Sooner than you might think!

Having just been late with a book I don't want to count my chickens too early, but you hear the schedule very soon on JavaRanch.

Hi Kathy / Bert,

Does the book cover OOAD & UML also ? Would you stick only to GoF Patterns ?
Could you throw some light on the contents ? My doubt is due to this post is discussed under SCWCD forum and not Patterns .

BookPool is listing the soon to be released Head First Design Patterns book at the best price. If I pre-order from them, will I get one of the first batch produced? Or would I get it sooner pre-ordering from Amazon or Barnes & Noble (at a higher price)?

I agree. Here's the link:
