Physics in Focus for Year 11 second edition

It’s good when a book sells out its first print run then goes to a second edition. I recall someone telling me once that first editions should not be collectors items since every book has one but few go through multiple editions.

Regardless, I’ve seen the cover of the second edition of Physics in Focus for Year 11 , a textbook for high school physics students in New South Wales. It looks a lot like the first edition, but the cover says ‘Updated Feb 2018’ and ‘2nd edition’. The book complies fully with recent changes to the syllabus documents put out by the education authorities in the state. I wrote less of it than any of the other authors, so I cannot claim this is my doing, but it is still nice to see.

I am reliably informed it has just gone to the printers. The website may not even be updated yet.

There are older texts with the same name out there; anything in a different cover no longer reflects the current state of the syllabus, at least in NSW.

Yay!
