X-Ways Forensics Practitioner’s Guide, Second Edition

Here’s the update, TL:DR version

The second edition will be here in 2020.

Here’s the holdup (the bad news)

Syngress (who holds the publishing rights), is not taking on any new books, nor any future editions of current books. For all practical purposes, publishing through Syngress is over for everyone. They have changed their business strategy, which means, no X-Ways Forensics Practitioner’s Guide/2E through Syngress.

And for good news

Syngress promised to transfer the rights back to me and Eric Zimmerman.  It’s been weeks since waiting for the official rights transfer, but it is coming, so I am told. I am keeping up with weekly reminders to make sure. I do not doubt the rights are coming back, and when they do, the book will be self-published.

Self-published means:

  1. Typing to print time will be 75% faster.
  2. Updates will be practically immediate
  3. Future editions, when necessary, will be just a fast
  4. The book will be exactly what we want, which is the way we think best for users
