For the last 4 months or so, this has been completely in the hands of
the publisher. I finally got them to take the drafting board off of
the cover. They replaced it with an F1 car, which is an
improvement.The best of my information is that this past Friday was
the "bound book" date, when the book has been physically manufactured.
Next they have to distribute it. I haven't received a copy yet. They
did give a final page count, which turned out to be 1104. I'm as
anxious as anyone about this book, and equally starved for information
Since there have been a steady stream of requests, I set up another
way to order the book from my website
, which is a
few dollars more than Amazon, but includes shipping, and you can get a
signed copy directly from me. This seems like a vain thing to do, but
it wasn't my idea.
As for the date when you'll get yours, I haven't heard anything to
contradict May 7. I'm hoping to get some soon. Watch my blog for news.
Vain, Don't worry - You're in good company .
I once had a signed copy of Gaddafi's "The Green Book" :-) - but a
bastard I lent it to never returned it.
Just looked at your site - what is the shipping to the UK ? - it
will be more than you have accounted for I presume. I can use Paypal
- does it allow an extra charge for the greater cost. Or should I
make an extra payment to the account? Tell me what it will be.
Wish I'd waited - I ordered off Wiley.co.uk an age back... (Extra for
the sig? Why not?)
Cheers Matt - the tutorials and advice over the years have made my life
a lot easier and a lot more fun.
I asume shipping to DK would be the same as for UK?
Looking forward to get some material that is adresses to advanced
Will your web-site confirm the release date when it is confirmed by
I haven't got the shipping-across-the-pond thing worked out yet. I will
address it, though, and get back to you. My guess from initial research
is that it will add US$5-7 to the cost.
Actually, it will probably be my blog that announces the availability.
