    Could be better if the color looks 'younger'. :think: And definitely need to look more attractive. I think that it looks good. But to stand out among other books, it needs to do better than that. :D

    Oh yeah, before I forget, my publisher says that the book size has not been finalized.

    The following trim sizes (in inches) are being considered :-
    • 5.5 x 8.5
      6 x 9
      7 x 9.25
    The final choice will depend on the page count of each trim size. But please do let us know if you have a particular preference for a trim size. :mrgreen:

    I think it needs to pimp the site more.. then more visitors would come to visit the site.. no?

    :arp: :arp: :arp: <--- how can they miss this?

    Also, could they come up with an alternative design? Using ARP's colour scheme and design style? LIke the site? It would be nice to have something that's similar to the site's design...

    Prentice Hall is interested in adding the mascot to the cover and the book. I already sent them the file so let's see what they come up with next. :mrgreen:

    Anyway, here are some comments from my brother, Jason :-

    And here are some comments from eXtremeReviews :-

    My friend suggested that the cover background should have more significant meaning of the BIOS, like a 'Press Del to enter BIOS' picture, or maybe a BIOS chip picture, etc...

    Woohoo... got ARP logo! :dance:

    Btw, how about the back of the book? :think:

    That part with the prentice hall logo and "Wong" and the book title, is that the side of the book cover? :think:

    Personally I think the ARP mascot doesn't fits in the design of the cover, so its best to put it elsewhere like the first page or second, if really wants to put it in. :think:
