Book Translations

I've been really lucky with the interest in my Make Your Own Neural Network book.

Some publishers have been interested in taking the book, but after some thinking I've resisted the temptation because:

  • I can price the books how I want .. this is important especially for the ebook which I want to be as cheap and accessible as possible. Some publishers will increase the ebook price by an order of magnitude!
  • I can update the books to fix errors, and have the updated book ready for people to buy within hours, and usually within 24 hours.
  • As an author who has spent lots of my own time and effort on this, I get a much fairer deal with Amazon than with traditional publishers.

However, I have agreed to other language translations of the book to be handled by publishers. So far, the book is on course to be published in:

  1. German
  2. Chinese
  3. Russian
  4. Japanese
  5. Korean

I love the "traditional animal" that O'Reilly have done for the German version:

I'm looking forward to more translations - personally I wish there was a Spanish and Italian one too.
