Happy On the Edge - second edition.

Spotted on Amazon just now... not released yet. Same number of pages as the first edition. I wonder what's changed Maybe a pin up dart board of Mr. Medhi Ali

This updated second edition includes additional interviews and first-hand material from major Commodore figures like marketing guru Kit Spencer, chip designer Bill Mensch, Commodore cofounder Manfred Kapp, and infamous CEO and President Jack Tramiel.


Ah, no dartboard

Changing the name is going to confuse the hell out of people.

I pray this edition has been spell and grammar checked. The first is a great book but reading it was, at times, a chore.

I've just checked the ISBN of that book on the shop (I bought it from yourselves last year ) and it's slightly different to this one, plus the cover is totally different!

ISBN of old book;

0-9738649-0-7
9780973 864908

New;

ISBN-10: 0973864966
ISBN-13: 978-0973864960

I'm afraid you are mistaken. The ISBN for the first version (not printing) is 0-9738649-0-7 (this is what you are selling) and the ISBN for the new edition is 0-9738649-6-6. Brian Bagnall has made it quite clear that this is a new version with updates and additions.

So you wouldn't.

You posting that is almost as pointless as this post
