We have been announcing the upcoming pfSense book already multiple times here on the blog. Here’s a quick update for all those waiting to finally buy it: It’s almost done!

As you can see from the information on the publishers site it only needs some finishing touches and even the first preview print has been produced.

Stay tuned, we’re almost there!

    Very nice, I can’t wait!
    I assume there will be a 2nd revision in another year or so after pfsense 2.0 comes out?

  2. kenny Says:

    can you comment on how detailed the traffic shaping portion of the book will be?
    setting up pfsense for me was never really an issue, though i am never quite sure if i have the traffic shaping setup the way i want.

    It’ll be available worldwide from Amazon and Barnes & Noble at a minimum, amongst others possibly, not sure.

    Where is the book ??? The publisher site says “Publishing Date: September 2009″ … Now it is September !!!

  16. Chris Buechler Says:

    DevAuto: September isn’t over yet. :) It’s going off to print very soon.

  17. Belthazar Says:

    Probably in time for the EuroBSDCon 2009, September 18-20?

  18. Chris Buechler Says:

    Belthazar: I’m heading out for EuroBSDCon right now, and will be putting my last touches on it in airports and planes today. :)

  19. Belthazar Says:

    Enjoy Chris, hope it goes well. So then we will have to wait, as you said “September is not over as yet”. ;)

  20. DevAuto Says:

    Hey Chris, enjoy EuroBSDCon! Wish I were going too … I will try to be patient and wait for the book ;)

  21. Romeo kardong Says:

    its great, I would like have this book ASAP.

  22. Mangaan Says:

    Less than a week now…???

    When I check the sites amazon and Barnes & noble for coming soon or do a search on pfsense books nothing can be found.

    Strange !

  23. Chris Buechler Says:

    I think it may not show up on Amazon and other sites until they have them in stock and shipping, I’ll add a new post here as soon as it’s available for ordering.

  26. John Says:

    I’m brand new to pfSense and think that this book will be a huge help. I can’t wait!

  27. Zio Says:

    cool cool, hope one time comes a german version too!! ;-))

  28. Genti Says:

    Will be ready for Christmas? :P

  29. Alexsandro Farias Says:

    Great, finally a book! The definitive guide! I like this name, makes remember other great books from O’Reilly! :).

    I want to buy it! Where can i find it?

  30. SaltH20Fish Says:

    I have searched amazon and barnes & noble and the book isn’t available yet. Any word on when it will be available? I very much look forward to diving head first into it!

    Thanks for publishing such a book. BTW, what skill level were you targeting when you authored the book?

  31. JoE Says:

    need this book badly……
    it this book for free???

  32. Chris Buechler Says:

    JoE: No it’s not free. Some portions of it are on doc.pfsense.org but not a lot.

  33. Belthazar Says:

    Hi Chris

    I know you have had a lot of requests regarding the release of the long awaited book. Is it possible to give us an update on the release of the book?

  34. Luciano Goulart Says:

    Hi Chris,

    I like the general topics present in your book. Congratulations! I sugest that your next book talk about developement in pfsense, because the on-line documentation is poor and the programmers need a complete guide to develop and contribute with the project. It can help the project to receive more contributions and expand the community.

    Thank you for your greate job!

    I love pfsense.

  35. Chris Buechler Says:

    And it’s off to the printer on Monday, finally! Not sure how long it takes to get printed and get to booksellers, but we’ll have a new post up here when it’s available for purchase. I don’t think there will be a pre-order available.

  36. Belthazar Says:

    Cool! :)

  37. Chris Buechler Says:

    The first round of books are printed and on their way to Amazon and Barnes & Noble. They will be available for order “any day now”, exact day not known yet.

  38. Belthazar Says:

    Hi Chris, this is excellent news.

  39. Mangaan Says:

    finally our patience rewarded !!!

  40. Belthazar Says:

    Just placed my order on Amazon… yeah!!!

  41. Chris Buechler Says:

    Belthazar: where? heh It doesn’t show up yet for me. :)

  43. Chris Buechler Says:

    Yeah now it’s showing up, thanks for the heads up Belthazar. I told Jim a couple days ago that we would probably hear from someone else about it being available before we saw it ourselves. :)
