I’ve just taken delivery of a big package, containing author copies of the book.
Last week I got a single copy. I see now why: they wanted to get that one to me ASAP so they sent it by air, but they sent the big package by surface mail. Makes sense.
As for the corrections for the second printing … well, there’s the odd comma or hyphen needs fixing, there are some indentation issues with code samples (mostly in Chapter 5), all of which should be straightforward. Worst, some awkward and inelegant language slipped through in Chapter 2 – probably because it got a late rewrite on feedback from the tech reviewers. It’s a bit jarring to find myself repeating what I said a page back, and that somehow didn’t show up when reviewing it on screen (probably due to over-familiarity).
If you’re one of the people I’ve promised a copy, now’s the time to bug me!
