If you thought “here he comes again” with the bugs and stuff, no – this is not about it. This is just about a new sales campaign launched by PACKT Publishing, the good guys who published my and Dave’s book three years ago, and plenty other good books thereafter, as well.
So, if you haven’t purchased my book yet, or any other cool Dynamics book, now is the time: during February, PACKT is giving 10% to 30% percent discount on all of its Dynamics books and offerings. Printed books are 20% off, e-books are 30% off, so this might be a good time to support us poor guys who have to make a living from literary efforts
I’m now going to pre-order my copies, and you should do the same. As Marq says, buy the books, enjoy the knowledge!
Last week, there were three Dynamics communities announced. This week, three books are announced. Do you see a trend here, or is it only me? What’s going to happen next week? I don’t even dare thinking…
I woke up this morning with a fantastic news in my mailbox: Chandru’s and Vincent’s upcoming book Microsoft Dynamics NAV Sure Step 2010 is already available at PACKT Publishing’s web site in a format I wasn’t even aware it existed: RAW (Read As we Write). The book isn’t finished yet, but you can already purchase the e-book with those chapters that have been completed.
I was aware of this book being in development, but had to stay quiet, and I was really looking forward to announcing it here. I am only sorry I couldn’t do it immediately this morning.
With so much interest in Sure Step lately, I can’t imagine a better time for this book to be written. Book authors are Chandru Shankar, a member of the Sure Step team and one of the people who are authoring and managing the development of Sure Step, and Vincent Bellefroid, an expert in Sure Step and a member of the extended Sure Step team, who has also participated in development of many Sure Step training and readiness materials, train-the-trainer program, and one of the leading providers of Sure Step trainings in Europe. It can’t get any better than this, and this book is worth your investment.
Chandru and Vincent – congratulations! This is a fantastic addition to the world of Sure Step. And Thank You in the name of all of us working with and using the methodology!
Back in my time (now I feel old :)) if you wanted to read a book about Microsoft Dynamics NAV, you just couldn’t—there wasn’t any available. Today, if you want to learn about NAV, not only there are books about programming and implementing, but with new Mark Brummel’s book you can now learn about the most important aspect of Microsoft Dynamics NAV customization projects—the application design. The book hasn’t yet been published, but is already available for preorder through PACKT Publishing at the following link: Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 Application Design.
MSDynamicsWorld.com has just posted an excerpt from my friend Dave’s and my book Implementing Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009, delivering some content from chapter 4, focusing on the implementation process. The Chapter 4 draws a lot of its content from Sure Step best practices, and the fact that MSDynamicsWorld.com has decided to post this content on their website shows how important a standard methodology is for a successful implementation project.
This excerpt is only the first part of a series of two articles, and the next one is due to follow soon. I’ll make sure to let you know about it.
Anyway, the book so far has been received pretty well, we’ve got a lot of good feedback, and Amazon.com sales rank consistently shows the audience likes it a lot. Have you got yourself a copy already?
