LINQ in Action Second Printing!

Our LINQ book

LINQ in Action is doing well. We're all happy with the sales and all the reviews, on Amazon (5 stars on average) or on blogs.
In fact, the book is doing so well that the publisher has to do a second printing! We didn't expect that it would happen so soon :-)

We've updated the text where needed, according to the errata we've collected since the first edition was published, back in February. The new files are being sent to the printer right now.
If you see something else that could be improved (for the third edition...), feel free to post a comment to the new errata page or in the forum.

LINQ in Action can be found on Manning's website (with all the details and sample chapters), on,,,,,,, and many more online and offline bookstores!

It's difficult to say. I guess that it will depend on bookstores and their stocks. I think that it will be transparent to the bookstore and they'll receive books from the new printing once copies from the previous one are all gone.

Do you have info on the ISBN# for this 2nd edition book? Thank you

The ISBN stays the same. Only a brand new edition would get a new ISBN. This is in fact a corrected printing of the same book.

As I write above, it's actually a second printing. I'm not used to the terms in the book world. Anyway, this has been printed back in May, so I guess the copies are now available in bookstores.

FWIW, "Second, corrected printing May 2008" is written at the bottom of page IV, just below the ISBN.
