Taking the Quantum Leap

Taking the Quantum Leap - The Last Word on the Sinclair QL by Mike de Sosa

There appears to be some confusion surrounding this book.

A search of the internet reveals a book by Michael de Sosa, called Taking the Quantum Leap - Using the Sinclair QL published in both hardback and soft cover by McGraw-Hill in 1985 (ISBN: 0070165785).

There do not appear to be any more details of this book.

We have also now seen a large A4 ring-bound book (269 pages), entitled Taking the Quantum Leap - The Last Word on the Sinclair QL, also by Mike de Sosa, and published by Time Designs Magazine in 1987 - this is the one pictured. The acknowledgements page gives thanks to an editor at McGraw-Hill, so perhaps this is one and the same publication?

It forms not only an indepth look at the Psion programs and how to use them to best advantage, but also the QL itself - its hardware and its SuperBASIC, with plenty of routines and short demonstration programs throughout.

It even touches on ideal QL systems using the hardware and software at the time - and touches on the Thor and Futura computers.

Perhaps this was a series of books - can anyone clarify this?
