Whilst that would be quite plausible in other circumstances, I don't know if it fits here. Even if Ralph didn't complete the additions to the book that he is implying are already done, then Amiga users would probably settle for a reprint of the first edition of the book, which would require little/no extra work on his part at all.

Absolutely, I'm okay if we disagree too. I respect your maturity in dealing with other peoples views.

Nice one Bamiga2002! I'm not much of a programmer either but the Guru Book seems like the most complete Amiga programming source in existence (from other peoples accounts) so I'm interested to see what it covers and in how much depth (and hopefully learn a thing or two from it!). Does anyone with a 1st edition Amiga Guru Book think it is accessible for beginner/intermediate programmers?

AndreasM, you should sign the petition also...
Woah, steady on there! Whilst I'm pretty sure AndreasM would like to see the newly revised book get published, he's already shown his support in other ways. In fact I doubt the possibility of a reprint would have come about if it wasn't for AndreasM's help. Having said that, of course he is welcome to sign the petition too if he wishes.
