I checked with many of them and I really don't find one reason for the book to be not available here. I thought the authors might be knowing about this. Anyways, I will try for it in some other cities...

Pardon the ignorant question I'm about to ask...I dont know how mail/packages are handled in India, but aren't you able to order this book online and have it delivered? [ June 26, 2007: Message edited by: John Mikhail ]
Bear Bibeault is right, as authors we don't really have an answer to that question.
There is a short cut, as you can buy an e-copy on the books home page http://www.manning.com/hanson which you would get instantly, it costs less than the paper copy, and also saves the environment a little.
