I have already put in my order for the 12th Edition of RONR, but the full book and the 3rd Edition of the In Brief version.

I take it that many others on this site have already pre-ordered their copies?

I pre-ordered a hard copy of RONR. The cost of a hard copy + free shipping is not that much more than the cost of a soft copy + shipping.

I can't wait for the BOTY (Book Of The Year) edition, with all the DLC and soundtracks.

But in seriousness, I've preordered both. I was debating waiting until I could take the NAP entrance exam so I could buy the spiral-bound version, but I decided to go ahead and preorder so I could get it right away.

Is there a downloadable document outlining the changes from the 11th to the 12th editions? Thank you.

There is a link to a PDF outlining changes at the bottom of this page. Look for "Download a PDF of all significant changes".

As Mr. Geiger pointed out, yes, there is a PDF that he linked to which notes most of the changes. The 12th edition itself also has a list of changes in the preface, but during today’s NAP training conference one member of the authorship team said the PDF version on the website is more extensive than their list In the preface of the 12th edition itself.

Are there any big changes in the 12th edition ?

Likewise. I received my first copy from Amazon on the 1st but it arrived damaged (based on the damage, it appears that the pages were creased when they attempted to shove RONRIB into the same envelope carelessly). My replacement arrived today and so far I have no complaints.

Actually, one "complaint": it's bigger than the 10th and 11th editions, which means I'll probably need to rearrange a couple things in my bag to make it fit. Oh well, c'est la vie.

Yes, it's far superior, but it tends to fall down when trying to cite material in the tinted pages.

Well, yes, there are no section and paragraph numbers in the tinted pages. But what's the problem? Just cite them the same way as you would have in the 11th edition.

The problem arises when you're quoting from the Kindle version (which I somehow managed to snag in the 11th edition before it was yanked).  There are no page numbers.  If I were quoting the tinted pages I'd have to say Tinted, the roman numeral, and I think the arabic number below that.  I'm not sure that would work all the time.

Yes, I suppose that would be a problem with the Kindle version. Personally, I almost never cite the tinted pages anyway. If I use them at all, it's just to quickly find what I am looking for, and then I find the appropriate section in the book and cite it.

Received my copy, love the new citation system!  

 

I do as well! The NAP Pony Express delivered mine Saturday.  Quite a delight to see RONR (12th ed.), 46:27-29  It was worth waiting for the Deluxe Version, I suppose.  :)
