AFAIK - no,
and one of the reasons is big size of e-Book, since it's made of mostly of pictures.

I felt very disappointed as this book don't have the CD inbuilt...
I have to carry this FAT 850pg book + my notebook few kgs....

I have read 80% of SCJP book with the help of ebook, ofcourse i bought the book.

Its good if the authors come up with CD pdf version, if the file size is their concern please split into chapters wise.

Anyway keep up the good work i like your HF style.

i like e-book as well , as Mikalai Zaikin mentioned , the head first book come with picture on every single page , then i think is difficult to read from e-book ..

Another reason why there is no ebook was, JUST MY GUESS, to avoid people to send or share the books with other people, without a proper authorization or license.
