Wanted to take a quick moment to let folks who might be interested know that I am no longer involved with the Head First OOA&D book. After 2 years of work, my book was rather suddenly canned. I don't want to turn this into a ranting post, so I'll leave it at that.
As I understand it, Brett McLaughlin is now writing a book with the same title with help from a couple OO experts. I have not seen a Table of Contents for this book, so it's probably best to disregard any of my past posts regarding the content of the book. I'm sure Bert or Brett will provide more information on the new book as it becomes available.
Anyone who is expecting a free copy from the cover model contest should probably contact Brett to make sure you still get your book once it comes out.
Thanks to all who expressed interest in the book and especially to those who participated in the cover model contest.
