I'm very happy to announce the second edition of my book Programming 
LiveCode for the Real Beginner. The previous edition stems from the time 
of LiveCode 6 and since then many features have been added to --and some 
removed from-- LiveCode. One of the major changes concerns Unicode. 
While I haven't deleted any of the valuable information about Unicode 
form the book, I have added a paragraph and made several changes to take 
into account the much easier way LiveCode deals with unicode nowadays.

Everywhere in the book, small corrections and bigger changes have been 
applied. Where necessary, scripts have been updated and minor remarks 
have been added, making the text more comprehensible. The paragraphs 
about the standalone builder and the properties inspector have been 
renewed. Pictures have been updated with improved quality and doing more 
justice to LiveCode's multi-platform character.

The red cover with scripts and mainboard has been replaced with a fresh 
yellow cover exhibiting four fields in which one might find LiveCode 
projects making a significant contribution. I intend to write a blog 
post about this when I have collected the necessary info.

In response to feedback, we have decided to abandonthe bubble plastic 
envelopes and replace them with carton board book cases. Your book 
should now arrive in perfect condition. If it doesn't, contact us.

Important to know:
- 250 pages with many examples
- This book is not available as e-book and it won't be. Don't ask.
- Read more at 
(we still need to update the website but most information still applies)
- The book costs 32 euro, including packaging and shipping costs
- We ship globally with only a few (four or five) exceptions
- Not receiving your purchase (e.g. sometimes in China)? Use our website 
to contact us and ask for a solution

Have you written or are you writing a book and do you own the 
copyrights? I'd like to explore the possibilities to print more 
LiveCode-related books. Contact me if you think this is an awesome idea. 
(I'm a registered publisher).

Kind regards,
