Puppet Show and Swing Hacks

What if you held a book signing and nobody came?

I'm just getting into QTJ (which is awesome BTW) and was wondering if there is going to be a new edition?
Regarding book signings, I kinda see my tech books as "work" and while there's a little geek value in getting them signed I'm not sure I'd make the trip.

Hey, I'd stop by to get a copy signed :-)

One of the things I like about your QTJ book are the cute photos of your son :). Is he old enough to sign the book as well?

Sorry you had a bad experience. I purchased the book before the show and didn't pack it for the trip.

Great book and I appreciate your efforts and work on this book project.

I probably wouldn't unless it was for like, a Josh Bloch or now maybe Richard Johnson - BUT, I do appreciate your hard work, and on the bright side: BRILLIANT title for this post - one of the best I've seen. (Hope I'm not the only one that gets it)

Thanks again and good work

Did you follow Josh to California? I had never heard of the Digital Guru bookshop, and thought for a moment it might be an Atlanta area store. Good ol' Google corrected me.

jimothy- No, I'm still here in Marietta. And Josh has since moved to Oregon. Digital Guru, as I take it you've figured out, runs the on-site bookstore at JavaOne, as well as maintaining a brick-and-mortar store and mail-order biz (I remember Daniel Steinberg finding it to the the only place that had a JXTA book he was looking for).

LOL. I see what you mean. I guess it's the same reason why only few people have their Accounting books or Law books signed. :D
