WANTED: Conquer the Command Line - Richard Smedley

Wed Jan 03, 2018 2:55 pm

I am trying to locate a copy of the above book. Yes I know it is available as a pdf, but I wish for an actual book.

Willing to pay a sensible price to obtain a copy.

Many thanks, Craig

You might be able to get an on-demand copy printed. They can be kind-of expensive for one-offs, but become much cheaper if you need just a few.

For instance, Toronto Public Library's Asquith Press (essentially an Espresso Book Machine at the main reference library) would charge the following for this 56 page book:

Code: Select all

Copies			1	2	3	4	5
Gross Cost / book [CAD]	$37.56	$23.44	$18.73	$16.37	$14.96
Gross Cost / book [USD]	$29.94	$18.68	$14.93	$13.05	$11.92
Gross Cost / book [EUR]	€24.92	€15.55	€12.43	€10.87	€9.93
Gross Cost / book [GBP]	£22.15	£13.82	£11.05	£9.66	£8.82
The interior pages are black and white, but the print quality is good.

The book is available at Amazon UK, but the price is quite high.

Don't forget, soon after releasing this book, Raspbian went from Wheezy to Stretch, making some information out-of-date.
An update of the book would be useful.

Unfortunately when you look at what is for sale it is a linux book on all the links, but thanks for the effort.

I notice the buy link is not working on the PDF so I popped to the new place (no PiHut which it used to link to )
https://store.rpipress.cc/collections/all and sold out :-(
It is old though, could send them an email asking if they know anything.

Hopefully someone may have a copy they can send you.

You never know if your local large Tesco or WH Smiths might have one, I've seen these books in there now and again.
