My HF Servlet Book missing Pages

Just 80 pages into the Servlet and JSP head first book and in the middle of following the examples in chapter 3, realize that my book skips from 84 to 122. I will probably have to take it back to the store next week or try and contact oreilly.

Besides the missing pages, this book rocks.

Wow Aaron - that's very weird!

I'm sure you'll get an exchange, but let us know if you have any problems!

The hard thing is the bookstore only had one copy, I was using it to prepare for a new job I start next week. Oh well, I can fall back on core servlets. Not as easy to read or as quick to pick up the concepts.

How could I get an autograph on this book?

I tell you, the notice on the bottom of the page "You are here" pointing to the page numbers made this much easier to identify the problem


Very odd indeed.

I had exactly the same problem and O'Reilly replaced it free of charge.

I emailed

What nice (and refreshingly trusting) people!
I agree. Here's the link:
