You must be worthy Dave, otherwise you would not have a pre-release copy-So we should all be supplicating to you now.

I'm special  ;D
Paul & Win are fans of the blog and contacted me and made sure it happened.

Books in Soft covers always tell me how serious the authors were about their books.

I don't know what you mean. The Cambridge University Press India is specifically printing on the cheapest paper, and of course soft cover, to save cost for the end user. What makes you think the two blokes weren't serious about their book?

As of right now Amazon has it available prime (free shipping) for $110 and change. A bit of a sticker shock for an electronics book, but I had to remind myself they are basically going more after text book type markets and that is typical if not downright reasonable pricing in that market.

Ooh, so Alice Cooper was in your lab? ;) Hmm, nerds making a TV show from their basement... ok, close enough anyway :D

Unsure though why that old-fashioned conglomerate of plant fibers is obstructing the view :D Ohh wait, I think I get it: ;)

If anyone wants a hardcover copy of the SECOND edition, I will send it for the price of postage once my third edition arrives.

New Zealand

I'd prefer to give it to someone who will read it, not just someone looking to resell it.

" And presented in Dave's unique non-scripted overly enthusiastic style! "

Hmm, non-scripted?? Ok, it is a short video so I guess the idea was born only a few minutes before shooting this video. ;) Most important thing, you brought a smile to my face  :D

Just pre-order it.
Shipping is free only inside Germany. Ordering from France, I have to pay the shipping, OK, but the book is sent from the European store in France... Anyway, at the end the price is 25% less in Germany!

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.

Yep, Germany seems cheaper for some reason.

So much for the "Euro Zone" eliminating price differences between member countries...

I cannot see why Warner should be involved where the opening of '2001' is concerned. The movie was distributed by MGM which is now part of Sony and anyway it's a classical music piece which should be out of copyright.

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

Much better than the previous version...
Care to PM me a link to the torrent? Searching TPB and Google in general only brings up the 2nd edition. It's also not on several private sites I'm a member of.
Ditto to what timb said!

I think you have both been trolled hard  :-DD I took the original post as a joke, maybe it's that British humour we are famous for?

I enjoy British humor and didn't take the post that way, but maybe you're right. Then again someone else mentioned having a download too.

(For the record I've pre-ordered the book, but I want a copy for my iPad as well.)

Do you actually type that in every time?

Having my inbox clogged up and notifications going off constantly would annoy me, but maybe you're a masochist? To each their own.

(No, I don't type the signature every time. It's part of Tapatalk. I didn't remove it because typing on my phone or tablet sometimes generates weird words to to autocorrect, also genital spelling and gramophone Miss steaks. The signature lets people know I'm not completely retarded.)

Dave,

I am not well versed in how well authors get paid, but I've known Win (electronically) for years and he has been immensely helpful to me and incredibly generous with his time and advice to everyone I've ever seen ask him questions.   

Would it be possible for Win to somehow sell these books directly to EEVblog members and pocket the money himself rather than paying Amazon (or whomever) a cut? 

Or perhaps the margins in the book industry do not make this worthwhile?  If the margins are fat, he could even perhaps arrange a group-buy below MSRP and he'd get alot more profit and we'd all get a small discount.

Possible?
It's not always the most popular person who gets the job done.

Oh, I see.

I'm still part of the generation who doesn't carry a beeping/vibrating box around with me 24/7.

I woke up this morning and noticed there were some emails in my inbox after I opened my email client. Didn't disturb me at all...

Preordered the 3rd edition on amazon.de (ETA 3 May 2015 here in Germany)

Stupid question, if I will have the 3rd does it make sense to buy the 2nd too?
