New Book Release - Data Recovery with & without Programm

Post Posted: Dec 04, 04 01:24

Dear All,
Thought that you all may like to know about a book that I came across while surfing the net.
I can't think of a similar book in this genre and it may be useful and certainly very interesting for any programmers out there.

P.S. I had a problem viewing this link on mozilla - but it worked fine in another browser.

Looks like an interesting read.

On the subject of technical/computer books, there are many I would like to buy, or even request for Xmas presents; however for me most are cost prohibitive (and I haven’t got the cheek to ask for one for Christmas). I understand that they represent the author’s hard work, but for this particular book - $69 is a bit steep. The theme is constant throughout computing ($49.99. $59.99 and even $79.99). Why? When most best sellers only cost $19.99 in hardback.

What I would like is some 'open source' books Smile

Or am I being just a tightwad?

Lol Jamie - I love it :lol:. Spamming and self promotion - credibility rating = zero.

Sorry guys; I didn't realise the author was on a self promotion crusade.
I would imagine everyone would have picked up on the book then without me joining in the noise.
Embarassed

Coming from India, I don't think it will turn up at my local Borders anytime soon.
It is steep and a risk to buy sight unseen.

Agree with the ebook idea - thank goodness for open source.
But then people have to earn a living also. It's a dillema.

I know that this is a bit of an old thread but I thought that you might be amused to know that the publisher's price for this book is 240 Rupees. That is about $5.5 or £3.
