Getting an e-book of the 1st edition with pre-order of 2nd?

Hi, I'm really curious to learn about iOS internals, but I don't want to buy the old edition now and then soon after have the new one get released. What if, when we pre-ordered the new one, we got an e-book copy of the old one?

I fully agree here - don't buy the first edition, as it is largely obsoleted by this one. I do realize it will be a bit longer before Vol 1 comes out, but I can't just give away the PDF of the 1st, since I don't think the rights have reverted to me as of yet (they will, soon, as it is officially out of print). What I can offer you , though, is to Google its title along with "filetype:pdf". Unfortunately, the very first link is a high quality PDF of it (the same as the eBook I myself got from the publisher!) . I can't believe I'm saying it, but - go ahead and steal it. The publisher used to sell this for $35/copy and I only got $2.5. So I don't mind if I don't get those $2.5 :-)

(Mind you, if I ever publish the 2nd Ed in PDF form, I do NOT condone piracy and certainly wouldn't mind the second edition (or Android Internals) pirated all over the place. It's just that in the case of the 1st Ed I got booted out of my own rights for the book..)
