You can check out the book, including sample content (which includes the front matter, Prologue, Chapter 3, and the index!), by going to the Pearson/Que Website (here). They have both the ebook and paperback versions available, as well as special bundle pricing. Of course, both formats are also available at booksellers everywhere, including Amazon, though it may be a few more days before the paperback shows as in stock (be sure to use the Look Inside and send a sample to Kindle features on there as well).

New Book is Out! - My Xbox: Xbox 360, Kinect, and Xbox LIVE

After announcing only yesterday that the Amazon look inside feature for our new book, My Xbox: Xbox 360, Kinect, and Xbox LIVE, was active, it turns out that it is now available for purchase and immediate delivery almost everywhere in both paperback and ebook versions, though not every bookseller will have both versions available just yet. For instance, Amazon has the paperback version available right now, but not the Kindle version, while Barnes & Noble has the Nook version available, but not the paperback. The publisher has sent various press and review copies out, so I'll keep you informed as new reviews and coverage rolls in. Besides using the look inside features of sites like Amazon and Safari Books Online, you can go straight to the publisher's Website, Que, and download Chapter 2 in PDF format for free (it also includes the Index; just select the sample from the "Sample Content & TOC" tab), which is the networking chapter. While that's not necessarily the most exciting topic in the book, it will give you a great idea of how visual and helpful the whole book really is, with multiple color images, callouts and diagramming on practically every page.

If you or someone you know thinks that the wealth of features available in the Xbox 360 are a bit overwhelming, this is the book that will finally bring it all together and have it make sense, and, unlike the other Xbox 360 books already out on the subject, this one covers all the latest features, including the new dashboard, so what you see in the book is what you'll see on your console and TV. Here's a high-level overview of the main chapter titles in the book:
