Authors,

Why is that the book is not available in India yet? I've been desperately searching for the book all throught Bangalore city but not able to get it.

This is not the type of question that an author can generally answer. It'd be best to check with the publisher.

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?

Yes, I can do that but I have to pay a hefty price for that because of the conversion rates. It would be cheaper for me to buy the local edition of the book.

Hi,

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.

Hope that helps!!

Thanks for the information! I'll try for it in some other places and if not then I have no other option rather than to get the e-Book.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
