Our book - available in three weeks hence?


Have a look at Barnes & Noble: they list the book written by the contributors of The NXT STEP already, and it says to be available at 7th of July!
It's the first public appearance of the final cover also, I guess.
How do you like it?

July 7 may be a bit optimistic... but it's coming soon. I figure end of July or early August, but who knows...the printers may get it out early.

I hope it either comes out by the end of June so I get while I'm in USA or at the time NXT-G v1.1 comes, cause I'm also going to make an order from LEGO Edu. then with the new NXT-G, maybe a few extra NXT motors, some cables, some extra gears and parts and your soon-to-come book if I have to wait till then. Man I want that book, it looks so awsome!

I'm biased, of course, Andy... but there are some really COOL projects in here.

I'm afraid end of June is out of question...

But I agree with Jim: very cool models. ;-)

By the way, it hasn't escaped my notice that YOUR book is out next week!

Matthias Paul Scholz said...

Ah, thanks, Rick!
I've updated the entry to provide the correct link.

Matthias Paul Scholz said...

My book? Oops!
Well, you are right!

Hm..let's see if Apress really will make it to that date with all the printing...

Amazon says August 25 (and has a better price):
