Head First Design Patterns 2006 Not Available

Hi,

Seemingly there is a new edition of "Head First Design Patterns" due to come out in September 2006.

But it is unavailable for pre-order on Amazon.co.uk and Waterstones.co.uk tell me they cannot get hold of it either.

So...is there really a new edition...and how/when can I get hold of it?

Cheers,

Simon.

This is ringing some sort of bell - apparently someone at some Amazon location got some bad data about a new version of the HF Design Patterns book. It might be that there is a new printing coming out sometime soon, but if it contains any changes at all it would just be to fix a few errata. There is no new edition planned anytime soon.

hth,

Bert

Hi Bert,

Ok, thanks.

I now understand the latest edition to be Nov 2004...and it is on the way.

Cheers,

Simon.
