Comparing different Oreilly series'

I just noticed you have a "Head First" series in addition to the animal pictures series. How many different series do you publish and what's the difference between them?

  • Hi Becky,

    Thanks for writing us about this. You can see all of our series at http://shop.oreilly.com/category/series.do.

    Generally, Head First is a learning series, not always for beginners, but focused on learning new things. You can read about the Head First method at http://www.headfirstlabs.com/readme.php

    Our animal books range from beginner to advanced. Within the animal books, many of our more introductory books will be called "Learning XYZ", "Getting Started with XYZ", or "XYZ: Up and Running". More advanced books often have "Programming" in the title.

    In a Nutshell books are reference guides.

    Theory in Practice books are higher-level books, generally focused on a big idea instead of a particular technology.

    And Missing Manuals books are usually in-depth manuals for hardware and software, and there are also some good introductory programming Missing Manuals.

    We also distribute books by some other publishers, which you can see at http://shop.oreilly.com/category/publishers.do

    I hope that helps!

    Regards,
