Superior Swift, fifth version – Ole Begemann

We launched the fifth version of our ebook Superior Swift just a few days in the past. You should buy the e-book on the website. The hardcover print version is printed and offered by Amazon (,,

Highlights of the brand new version:

  • Totally up to date for Swift 5.6
  • A brand new Concurrency chapter overlaying async/await, structured concurrency, and actors
  • New content material on property wrappers, end result builders, protocols, and generics
  • The print version is now a hardcover (for a similar worth)
  • Free replace for house owners of the e-book

A rising ebook for a rising language

Updating the ebook all the time seems to be extra work than I count on. Swift has grown considerably since our final launch (for Swift 5.0), and the scale of the ebook displays this. The fifth version is 76 % longer than the primary version from 2016. This time, we barely stayed beneath 1 million characters:

Bar chart of the character count growth of the first five editions of Advanced Swift, from 537k (first edition) to 947k characters (fifth edition)

Many because of our editor, Natalye, for studying all this and enhancing our Dutch/German dialect of English.


For the primary time, the print version is available in hardcover (for a similar worth). With the ability to provide this makes me very comfortable. The hardcover ebook seems significantly better and is extra more likely to keep open when laid flat on a desk.

We additionally elevated the web page dimension from 15×23 cm (6×9 in) to 18×25 cm (7×10 in) to maintain the web page rely manageable (Amazon’s print on demand service limits hardcover books to 550 pages).

I hope you want the brand new version. When you determine to purchase the ebook or for those who purchased it up to now, thanks very a lot! I hope you take pleasure in it. And for those who’re keen to write down a evaluation on Amazon, we’d respect it.
