Paperbacks on Lulu but PDF directly from me

Some people have noticed that my recent Delphi courseware manual titles can still be purchased in printed paperback format from, but PDF downloads are only available directly from me. This is a recent change (by me), based on the fact that recent titles get updated on a frequent basis (like once every 2-3 months), and I like to offer updates to people who purchase an electronic edition (as well as e-mail support for the topics covered in the books).

The electronic PDF files are typically 99 Euro each, and available from my own site where you can order them, and I have a record of your order, so I also know where to send the updates. From Lulu, I only get an overview of the total sales, without the details of the people who purchased the manuals (so it's hard to send you an update - and for a paperback it's even harder, since it means printing the manual again, so this is not something that can be done for free anyway, unlike the PDF files that only require an e-mail message once every few months).

If the electronic versions are too expensive, then please enjoy the printed paperback versions. Best of all: if you've in the neighbourhood: attend one of my training classes in The Netherlands, the UK (I'm just back from a 2-day masterclass on Delphi 2009) or Sweden. These days not only include the latest manuals, but also yours truly himself ;-)
