Great, but will this book be purchasable in Europa ? I hope so because I'm really waiting for it.

Thanks for your interest! Absolutely. Blackwell (UK), amazon.co.uk, amazon.de, amazon.fr and amazon.jp are all carrying the book, along many others. I suspect the shipping delays for Europe and Asia would be a tad higher though because the printing press is in Stoughton, Massachusetts (i.e. US East Coast). Andrei

Thanks for the reply. Is there a way to order it via a locale bookshop ? I will try this way first if it should be ok. If not I'll try to order it via amazon.

Large local bookstores should accept preorders. Just walk in with the ISBN and ask the clerk. Andrei

Where are you from? I've looked around in the netherlands and lots of online stores (no amazon here) and with-offline-shops already list it.

I'm from Belgium, but there's no Amazon here too, but I'll try to order the book in a "university bookstore".

Surprisingly, the savings are also higher, and not just a tad: amazon.com: $49.99->$42.70 amazon.co.uk: 36.99->18.50 !!!

The timing for this couldn't be better, it will arrive on my doorstep just as I get a few free days available for reading it :D

There's an extra dot in your second URL which downloads an empty PDF file. And an extra parenthesis in your first URL. :)

Oh, I just realized it says we get a free online edition with the purchase of the book. Just what I was looking for!

Good point (plus a good pun now (actually two if you count the parenthesis (I'm on a roll over here))). For the lazy: http://erdani.com http://docs.google.com/viewer?url=http://erdani.com/tdpl/cover.pdf http://erdani.com/tdpl/cover.pdf Andrei

If I see any puns like this in your book... ..then I'm buying an extra copy and sending it to a friend.

Whew. In fact it ain't that bad: [~] cd tdpl [~/tdpl] grep pun *.tex 0100-intro.tex:punctuation that makes, for example, ``him.'' and ``him'' count as 0300-statements.tex: writeln("a punctuation mark."); 0300-statements.tex: string y = "I'm here to make a point (and a pun)."; [~] _ So only one ostensible pun. There are a couple undeclared ones though. One that comes to mind: ========================================== import is akin to the \cc{\#include} preprocessor directive found in\sbs C and\sbs C++ but is closer in semantics to Python's import : there is no textual inclusion taking place---just a symbol table acquisition. Repeated import s of the same file are of no import. ========================================== Andrei

Are you implying the D language book is fiction? :p

It's a "cookbook" of sorts ;-)

In a way, it is. As the back cover says, it isn't just a dry list of features, it shows how to combine them to solve common problems in a very modern way.

Here's an unrelated piece of info that I'm very excited about: today for the first time TDPL has outranked Modern C++ Design on Amazon. MC++D Amazon.com Sales Rank: #40,580 in Books TDPL Amazon.com Sales Rank: #35,194 in Books Yay! I'm now worried about disappointing people... Andrei P.S.
