Sorry, the discount offer mentioned in this post has expired.
The first review is in. I don’t want to spoil the ending or anything, but to quote Sally Field: “He liked it! He really liked it!”
Reviewing Ed Bott’s Windows 8 Head Start | 7 Tutorials
After being walked through the basics by the earlier chapters, I think many non-expert, non-developers would feel confident trying out some of these more advanced topics. Having instructions from someone who really knows what he’s doing, and who can write everything clearly and without confusing jargon, is always important to understanding.
And a reminder that my special offer on this book is still valid.
Windows 8 Head Start is based on the Windows 8 Developer Preview, and in its 100 pages you’ll get a thorough overview of the new user interface and learn what you need to know to prepare. When the Consumer Preview arrives (in “late February”), I’ll immediately begin updating the book and making it substantially longer.
And here’s the best part:
If you purchase the current edition you will get the next edition for free.
Oh, and I have a coupon code you can use to get 30% off your order total when you check out. That means you’ll pay $6.96 instead of the list price of $9.95.
The book is available in a single download package that contains full-color editions suitable for reading on any device. Use the PDF file on your PC or Mac, copy the MOBI file to your Amazon Kindle, or use the EPUB file on a Nook or other Android device.
Interested? Here are the details: Go to the book page at the Fair Trade DX bookstore. Add the book to your cart. When you check out, include the code FriendOfEd. Your 30% discount will be reflected in the checkout price.
You can purchase the book at the Amazon or B&N store, but the checkout discount is only available from FairTrade DX directly. (Copies purchased from any source are eligible for the free update to the next edition.)
Why am I doing this? Because I want your feedback. Tell me what you want me to cover in the next edition and you’ll see that feedback reflected in my update.
