Um. That promotion was 14 years ago. Our book promotion system has changed completely since then. And even if it hasn't, most tech books go obsolete in 14 years!

Thanks for your reply Jeanne.

I know when it was and am still bringing this up because how it was handled was not fair and not right.  I did my part, opened the issue immediately at the time with Paul on email and he gave me the run around, or so it would appear, the book didn't arrived despite his claiming in several emails that it was sent.

I'd be willing to accept a current giveaway book such as the Java 9 book or something enterprise java architect certification related or something else that is a hot topic.
