When my publisher and I planned and priced my new book The Practice of Network Security Monitoring, we assumed the book would be about 250 pages. As we conclude the copyediting process and put print in layout format, it's clear the book will be well over 300. The current estimate is 328, but I think it could approach 350 pages.
Because of the much larger page count, the publisher and I agreed to reprice the book. The price will rise from the current list of $39.95 for paperback and $31.95 for ebook to $49.95 for paperback and $39.95 for ebook.
However, those prices will not go into effect until next Friday, June 21st. That means if you preorder at the NoStarch.com Web site before next Friday, you will get the current lower prices. Furthermore, use preorder code NSM101 to save 30% off list. If you use NSM101 as your discount code it shows No Starch that you got word of this from me.
Those of you who already preordered have already taken advantage of this deal. Thanks for your orders!
We're still on track for publication by July 22, in time for books on hand at my new Network Security Monitoring 101 class in Las Vegas. Seats for the two editions of the class (weekend and weekday) continue to fill.
If you live in Europe or the Middle East or Africa, you may want to attend my new class in Istanbul in September. I hope the protestors and government can manage their differences in time for this great new Black Hat event!
