Print Version of Digging into WordPress 3.0
Just a note to let everyone know about the new printed editions of Digging into WordPress 3.0. This is the latest version of DiW, featuring revamped core content, new graphics, popouts and asides, as well as a new chapter devoted entirely to WordPress 3.0. It’s certainly packed with WordPress goodness, with nearly 450 pages of practical, hands-on tips, tricks, and information. The PDF is awesome, but seeing it all printed up in full color on quality paper and heavy, glossy card-stock cover is enough to make you drool:
The book looks and feels good – the durable coil binding lets the book stay open flat for easy reading, and the quality of the printing is excellent, with crisp text and vivid colors throughout the book. And the new black cover looks amazing on the glossy 80-lb card stock. Even with so many pages of WordPress content, the book feels solid and durable. The copy in the photos above was used for proof-reading and has been flipped through by several people, but as you can see it still looks great. Here are some more shots of the book:
So here’s the deal: as with previous versions, we have a limited number of books to sell, and they are going quickly. So if you want one, now is the time. The books are priced at $70 + shipping/handling, which is around $10 within the US. This includes delivery confirmation.
YES we are shipping internationally! At least for now. Last time there were too many problems so we had to disable it. For now though, international shipping is available, but the shipping is quite a bit more expensive. International shipping includes tracking and possibly delivery confirmation (depending on location and availability).
What else? The printed book includes a FREE copy of the PDF, which includes our exclusive WordPress themes and free lifetime updates.
great, full colors
how about the sample files like theme?
is CD included?
Thanks Julian! :)
We send the theme files and PDF version of the book via email so people can subscribe to future book updates.
Any idea when the book is going to start shipping?
We received the books from the printers on Friday the 15th (last week), and are working as quickly as possible to get all existing orders shipped out. You should be receiving an email once your book ships and is on the way.
Please send all future correspondence regarding book orders to https://perishablepress.com/contact/
Just emailed the sales team.
What are the chances of paying for the print version, although its out of stock right now, and getting access to the pdf version at least right now?
I don’t want to purchase the pdf and then buy the book later. I can wait for the book to ship if I had access to the pdf soon. Be willing to pay in full now. Thoughts? Possible?
@Acts7: That’s not a bad idea, we’ve done something similar with pre-orders in the past, so it should be do-able. Let me consult with Chris and then reply to your email via our sales email account.
Thanks really looking forward to getting my hands on this book.
Look great the sample chapter “Anatomy of a WordPress Theme”, I’m going to think about it.
