Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic; e.g., Cheez Whiz, Hot Dogs and RF.

Just got my preordered copy today and have been reading through it. Does everyone else's copy have several references to a "Chapter 1x"? It seems like they meant to go back and change the reference later, but never got around to it. I've seen it several times now. Pages 2 (footnote 4), 4, 5 (end of gray box on resistors), and 20. There are probably more, but I'm just on page 20.

those are reportedly references to a companion publication yet to be published.
the x-files or the x addition or something.

Read the preface to the third edition.
There are lies, damned lies, statistics - and ADC/DAC specs.

Did anyone else order their book from Book Depository?
I received an email saying that they sent it on March 28th and that shipping to European countries takes 4-8 business days, so it should already be here.
Anyone else experiencing the same problem? :(

Yes... I'm in the US, and it's supposed to take 5-8 business days, and is overdue...

ETA: my copy was shipped from England on 3/28, and delivered on 4/16, so I guess they are very optimistic about delivery time.

The same is true for chapters 2, 3, 4 and 9. The "x" refers to an upcoming book with advanced material. The really bad news is, that we will have to wait several years for it. I have written about it in my review (at the bottom of the page):

Something tells me that you're this guy.



Also, I laughed my ass off at the 'We're not worthy' bit.

Heads up for anyone who pre-ordered from Amazon US.  I ordered mine in January for $108 and yesterday I got an automatic refund because other sellers are offering a lower price.

Make sure you get your refund if you didn't already.

I didn't get any "refund" emails, but the final price was 77.30 USD when it shipped even though it was 108 when I pre-ordered too.  I think that's an automatic thing, and it's based on the lowest price since you pre-ordered so if the 77.30 price was before your pre-order it might still be more as the final price.

Ah, you're right.  Checked my credit card statement and they only charged me the final price of $77.30.

Hmm any idea when you had to pre-order for that price?  I think i pre-ordered a few weeks ago but it went through at 108 even though they seem to be $77 right now.

Mine went through at £46.13 (I put the order on Amazon back in January).
I write software.  I'd far rather be doing something else.
