As you may, or may not know, I have been writing e-books about iOS and macOS since 2012. My first e-book, OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion and OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion Server Review was published back in July of 2012. Since then I have written a total of 11 books. I am adding two more this year, iOS 11, tvOS 11 and watchOS 4 for Users and Developers and macOS High Sierra for Users, Administrators, and Developers.
Over the years, I have published to both Amazon as well as on Apple’s iBooks store. The year, I wanted to do something a bit different. I have decided to offer a paperback edition of my e-books. The one that will be released first is iOS 11, tvOS 11 and watchOS 4 for Users and Developers. The physical book is 348 pages long, this means that is not a short book. As a matter of fact, the actual number of words written in the book is 73,564, which makes it more than double any of my other iOS e-books.
There are actually two versions of the book, depending on your preference. There is a full color edition and a black and white edition. The decision to have there be two different versions is two-fold. The first reason is that books are not inexpensive and distributing them can become expensive. The second reason is the sensitivity of some to price. One of the goals of this was to allow the paperbacks to be available through as many channels as possible. Give the price required for that to occur, the black and white version exists.
You can purchase the paperback version of iOS 11, tvOS 11, and watchOS 4 for Users and Developers from the following places:
The black and white version is $19.99, £15.99, or €17.99. It is available from CreateSpace or Amazon. With the black and white version you can order it from any bookseller and libraries can even order a copy if they want to. This should be able to be done through their normal channels, or they can just order it from Amazon as well. Just use the ISBN 978-1975847371.
