My Book Hits #1 on Nielsen Bookscan

I’m totally floored right now. My book hit and stayed at #1 in sales in ALL OF PROGRAMMING BOOKS for last week on Nielsen BookScan. Maybe it will do it again! Hopefully it will! What does that mean? It means that my book was the best selling book in the Programming Books category, ranking higher sales above all .NET Dev books, iPhone Dev Books, Java Books, Ruby Books, Rails Books, etc, you name it. My book was #1 and is showing no signs of slowing down (in fact, exactly the opposite according to my publisher). Again, I’m totally floored and feel very honored that people like my book that much. If you bought my book – thank you very much. :)

As always, if you’re a reader and you have any questions or problems feel free to contact me. Just scan the QR Code to the right to get my contact info with a bar code scanner. I’d be glad to help you.

    Congrats!!! Just bought it from Amazon. You should highlight this phrase in chapter 2:
    “I recommend extracting to c:android …”

    I missed it and had to go back. Doh! :-)

    Sorry, but according to Nielsen BookScan data, you’re actually #5, not #1. Being #5 is still an accomplishment to be proud of, though!

    I’m not sure of exact date that this was gathered, but this news was
    delivered by my publisher, Wiley, to me last week. I can only go by what
    they said. Thanks for your input though.
