The Book has landed
I did not think it would arrive before Oracle Open World, but it did. I got my copies of the book last night:
It is a good feeling to have the book fnished, printed and becoming generally available. The print job looks really good, the paper is thicker than Expert One on One Oracle was (less pages, thicker paper). The print is very crisp and clear - paper is very white, print very black.
They let me keep my look and feel, which differs from a normal Apress book. The code examples are black on grey which clearly sets them apart from the text itself - makes them stand out. I really like the way it looks and feels. The binding seems very secure, overall the physical book did not disappoint me at all.
They should start shipping soon.
