Windows Vista Inside Out, Deluxe Edition will probably head off to the printer this week, and Amazon.com is now taking pre-orders for it. The deal is actually a very good one: You place the order and you get 5% off the current (discounted) price of $37.79. If the price changes between now and then, you get the lowest price. Your credit card isn’t charged until the book ships, presumably in June, and you can cancel any time.
Full disclosure: I get a commission from Amazon when you order through this link. I think this is an excellent deal, but if you can find a lower price somewhere else, I won’t be offended if you order from that source.
Update: I’ve mentioned this edition before, but I guess it’s unfair to expect people to sift through the archives to find those older posts, so here are some details about this update:
It includes about 300 pages more than the original edition. The main difference, of course, is that it incorporates full coverage of Service Pack 1. It also includes more than a year’s worth of details we’ve learned about Vista that we didn’t know in December 2006, with double the coverage of Windows Explorer and Search, as well as a greatly expanded chapter on performance. And it includes coverage of some advanced features that we left out of the first edition, like speech recognition, Tablet PC support, and Group Policy.
