This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I pre-ordered this book on amazon.com in November 2012 and still not received the book. I got 2 emails so far stating that book delivery is postponed due change in the release date. Does anyone know what is the delay, would this book be available elsewhere? Also what good alternative books can I use?
Has anyone heard any update about this? I checked on Amazon today and although it states the 'published date' as July 2013, it still only has the book available for pre-order. Having passed the OCA exam yesterday I would like to get cracking with the OCP straight away.
according to the publisher site, this book will be released the december 26,2014.
I wonder why this book delayed so much. I'm in the same situation as yours having passed the OCA this month, I wanted to get the new Sierra book but when I saw it was already saying the release date would be in december, only I don't remember being only in 2014... now I have already ordered Ganesh book from Amazon and I'm only waiting for them to deliver.
Yeah we wanted to get the copies for all the devs in the office. We brought everyone who needed it the book for exam one, would of been nice to be able to buy everyone the Sierra & Bates book, as we still have copies of the SCJP6 book by them about in the office
