    Authors With Books

      Are any of our community authors bring books to sell at VMworld?  Is there a book signing session?

          Here is a list of the "community" books that I am aware of.

           

          VMware ESX Essentials in the Virtual Data Center by Stephen S. Beaver and Jason McCarty.

          VMware Infrastructure 3: Advanced Technical Design Guide and Advanced Operations Guide by Scott Herold, Ron Oglesby, and Mike Laverick

          VMware ESX Server in the Enterprise: Planning and Securing Virtualization Servers by Edward L. Haletky

           

           

           

          Will any of these be available at VMworld?

              I thought Steve had mentioned that they would have books also. Below is another. My book is due out in April and should be available in Rough Cuts form in a few weeks.

                    It's typically somewhere pretty visible in the main lobby or in the solutions exchange.  In past years, they've sold books by the community authors, and they're quite popular, so buy early.    - Robert

                      I know where my first stop will be.  Being Canadian, I'll save a $20-$40 per book by getting them at VMworld.

                        Hello from the other coast   - I know what you mean about book prices. Fortunately I'm close enough to the border to have a US mail drop.

                          Well, I did not know US books were so expensive in Canada.  Back when the US dollar was worth more than the Canadian dollar, you could get CA$5 worth of goods for US$4.50.  I bought my last set of skis at Whistler on the Canadian discount.  Since exchange rates have changed, I thought that meant Canadians now have all sorts of cheap imports from the US.

                            As our dollar has come up in value,  the pricing on some things has gotten better.  There was a big stink last fall when the dollar hit parity and book prices weren't reflecting that.  But as an example,  I got a book for $20 that would have been $24 at a local store and when I pick it up  in the US I'll fill up the gas tank ($0.20 / litre cheaper) and get some cheese.   Then I'll have to hit the border and explain that I was visiting to US for 20 minutes to get gas, cheese, some books and the usual Lego .

                                The milk freezes up here before it hits the bucket :).  Cheese and some other dairy is 40 % less (dairy regulations / different grass / etc).

                                  You haven't had milk until you've had Newfoundland milk.   So rich, creamy, and full of flavour you can still taste after it's gone.

                                    The only thing I noticed to be cheaper with the exchange rates was when I purchased American money.  Other then that, the cost of most imports either stayed the same.  One thing that didn't change was the cost of vehicles.  Some vehicles still cost $5000 - $10,000 more in Canada.

                                     

                                    The price of some books in Canada should be considered illegal.  Ed's book at Chapters.ca is priced at $54.99 while Amazon.Com has it priced at $41.00.  Scott's book on the other hand is listed at Chapters.ca for $65.95 while Amazon.com has it on sale for $37.77.

                                     

                                    Don't get me started on the cost of alcohol.
