To Bert : Is there some HFSJ eBook version ?

Hi Bert,

For those guys who REALLY bought the HFSJ book just like me, is there some way to get a licensed eBook copy of HFSJ book ?

I'm really a Big fan of your books, specially the Head First series.

That's why I purchased the SCJP 5 Study Guide book, HF Java, HF Design Patterns and a few weeks ago the HF Servlets & JSP book.

However, I'm one of those guys who like to read on computer instead of a printed copy.

I really understand it's not easy to release an eBook version specially because of piracy and many other technical related issues. I've already seen on Javaranch a few threads discussing about it.

Anyway, in the same way I got prepared for the SCJP 5 exam by using the eBook version provided on CD, I still think an eBook version of HFSJ book would dramatically reduce my preparation study time for the SCWCD exam, once I can read/study in my business hours as well.

Best Regards,
Edisandro Bessa.

PS.: Two weeks ago I sent you an email asking the same question above. I understand you are a very busy guy, so, as I got no reply I decided to put my question here. Please don't misunderstand me.

Please if you see my email in your inbox just disconsider it. It just refers to the same question asked here.

Hi Edisandro,

For a long time, we've been trying to figure how to provide eBooks without suffering great losses from piracy If you have any suggestions about how to solve this problem we'd appreciate the tip

Thanks for writing!
