I arrived back in the UK after a trip to JavaOne and a tour of California. After hugs and kisses from family and dealing with other matter, there was package waiting in the hallway. I finally saw three copies of the Java EE 7 Developer Handbook. This is what crossing the finishing looks like in a very different way. Yes!


It’s official, I am a technical book author. Language : English, Paperback : 634 pages [ 235mm x 191mm ], Release Date : September 2013, ISBN : 1849687943, ISBN 13 : 9781849687942

During the project of 15 months or so, my home office door served as a self-motivation fulfillment board.


My book is out there and my book needs reviews, so please if you are ready, able and capable then please add a review text to Amazon UK and Amazon USA today.

I will be at Devoxx in a few weeks,which is sold out. So if you want to a signed copy of the book, then buy it at the conference, I will be there to sign them at the stand. Thanks to Devoxx Partners for sorted me out.

Roll on to the next project, I say …

    I’ve been surprised with both my traditional books about the proportion of the sales that occur in year one.
    BTW see if your publishers can get you on the Amazon vine programme, it’s were most of my five star reviews in the US came from
