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.
This book is mostly written, we're doing edits at this point. My guess is that it will be available in a couple of months in the US and shortly thereafter in other parts of the world. As we get closer to completion the availability estimates will get better, and we'll let you know.
Spot false dilemmas now, ask me how!
(If you're not on the edge, you're taking up too much room.)
Yes, the sample chapters from the book too looks interesting.

Once the editing phase is complete I don't know the details of actual dates for availability in the US and in other countries. I have asked the editors at O'Reilly to either tell me, or to post that info here - so we'll all just have to keep our fingers crossed

First chapter of the book is available for public reading . You can access it following url given below
Looks like we'll have books in the US right before Labor Day. As for the books in India, the Domestic International copies should arrive in about a month or around October 1. However...I'm assuming you're talking about the Indian versions which are different - we've haven't secured a publisher for that yet - but we'll let you know when we do.
I live in Chennai and it doesn't look like the book is out here yet.. yesterday had been to The Landmark (book store) and don't think I saw it there. In fact, I just finished searching the Indian portals and none of them have got the book listed.
What is most funny is that the Shroff Publishers themselves don't have it listed.. Just try this..
Try checking it out at Eswar book house. www.eswar.com. Since you are in chennai, you can call them and ask if the book is there and I'm sure that they will have it. I don't know for what reason, shops like Landmark get the books later than compared to other shops which get them sooner.
The price is around Rs. 500 and after discount you get it for Rs. 425 like I got it from www.sapnabookhouse.com in Bangalore.

Thanks for the reply, Jothi. I was too lazy to go out to T.Nagar (if you know the place, you might understand why , but I checked the portal, it is not listed. No probs, I would shrug off the laziness and go out to Eswar or call them up. Thanks again!
