After waiting for a while for a new edition of "Absolute OpenBSD", which, released in 2003, was getting very outdated, and without any words of a new edition being worked on, I eventually bought the 1st edition in Nov 2012, only to learn 3 month later that this long-awaited 2nd edition was just released , an information that was not available in Nov 2012, or I would have waited a little longer.
So I'm now finding myself in a awkward position.
Given the high price tag of this book, my question is : Does O'Reilly have a commercial program for owners of books wanting to upgrade to new editions, apart from buying these new editions full price ?
In my case, is there a way to buy that second edition at a reasonable discount, for instance sending back the 1st edition copy, in pristine condition, bought only a few month ago ?
EMPLOYEE0Hello Dr. Franck Porcher, PhD,
There is no need to send a 1st edition back as it is possible to purchase the new edition of a book at a discounted price. If you have an older edition of a book, you can receive 40-50% off the purchase price of a newer edition.
Register your book at oreilly.com, and we'll send you a 40% upgrade discount for print books and a 50% upgrade discount for ebooks when we publish a new edition. More information on this can be found here: https://members.oreilly.com/account/b.... Hope this helps and have a fantastic day!
