I just updated my jQuery: Novice to Ninja epack to it's recently released second edition. I was struggling to justify the price being asked considering I already owned the previous edition. I don't see why Sitepoint can't offer free (or at least reasonably priced) updates to their ebooks when just about everyone else seems to... Nevertheless, considering I hadn't actually read all the way through the book I thought I may as well be up to date. Besides, that's not my issue...
I'm honestly offended that you think this is good enough for us. Please fix this and actually go to some effort, or else I don't think I'll be bothering with Sitepoint books again.

Re pricing, please have a look at this thread.
As for your issues with the formatting, I'll request a response from the publishing team. I'm sorry to hear that you're not happy.

yeah, i was kinda shocked to read a similar comment about the kindle version of "simply sql" on amazon...
Good: explains the select statement in a sensible order
[B]Bad: about 3/4 of the book is in bold. Every once in a while it turns off the bold just to show you that yes, they really did use a bold face. WTF, didn't anybody proofread the book?
A good book if you can get past the shouting. [/B]
(bold in quote added by me for, you know, strong emphasis)

Thanks for the quick responses :). I'll email you now.
Wow, I think I should count myself lucky that the book is not in bold :O.
