The 2nd edition was translated to Russian in 1993 and printed in large volumes. This is how it looked: large format with soft cover in 3 volumes. Each volume had the cover in its own bright color.

I just downloaded a pre-release copy off The Pirate Bay. I give it two thumbs up.  :-+  :-+

Much better than the previous version...

Hmmm...  My pre-order (from January) doesn't have a delivery date yet.  But Amazon is listing the release date as March 31.

I pre-ordered my copy today. Surprisingly the price was OK even here. What is new there ? I happen to have a PDF version of the 2nd edition and realized that I need a  paper version very soon.

Photoshop....
If they can fake the moon landing in the 60s they can fake this too. 

Wouldn't it be great if it was a giant scam and Winfield and Hill took all these pre-orders for the last 25 years and then disappeared.

 I happen to have a pdf version as well, hoverer I always feel that reading pdfs especially technical stuff is very difficult compare to a real book. maybe it's just me. Ordered a copy today as well.

I've pre-ordered my copy from Waterstones, post free. Expected date 30th April.

Oh! This reminds me of pre-ordering Harry Potter books just before publication dates.

I don't see any copies of the second edition going cheap. That would be useful to me, since I seem to be surrounded by old components.

Cost more than the new one.

Amazon Germany seems to have a reasonable price:

The Art of Electronics
Horowitz, Paul,Hill, Winfield
Verkauft von: Amazon EU S.a.r.L.

EUR 66,32
(oder weniger)

Ordered it yesterday morning (2015-03-25 07:44 CET).

...

Wait, it's priced EUR 75,95 now (39 hours later) :-/ I'll have to keep an eye on my credit card charges.
