WickedlySmart.com's main page says "Coming in September: Head First EJB-a study guide for the new Sun Certified...". If you click on the link, the linked page says that "Coming in August, Just in time to help you pass.....".
And now we are 13hours away from November and no book....
Kathy, your web site is smartly wicked.....
(Sorry, for the rantings... I can wait no more.........

Kanth -
We are sorry to be late!
We know the books are somewhere in the 'distribution channel', i.e. they've been printed and shipped. We *think* Amazon should be shipping any minute now, and that the books will be in stores in the next 7-10 days. But, of course, we're not in charge of distribution
This is meant as an explanation, not an excuse: Over the last month or two we realized that the book was going to be a LOT longer than we first thought. Head First books are really a new idea, and we haven't got all the kinks out yet. We decided that we didn't want to leave important stuff out to make a deadline. Our philosophy was 'better late and good' than 'incomplete but on time'. Even so, the book ended up being over 100 pages longer than planned, and we're going to put MORE content on the wickedlysmart site over the next few weeks!
Thanks for your patience!
Bert

Howdy Kanth,
Actually, I've been so wrapped up in finishing the book that I forgot about changing the website, so thank-you for reminding me! I just changed it a few minutes ago to show the book as being released/shipping today. We confirmed that O'Reilly really is shipping it now to their distributors, although I am surprised that Amazon hasn't started sending them yet. O'Reilly has begun sending them to the resellers, but will not send them to directly to customers until the online bookstores have them.
Should be any moment now... thanks for hanging in there.
Cheers,
Kathy

You can get Indian Edition from www.shroffpublishers.com. Elsewhere in this site someone posted that it is expected to be available around Nov 10. Hence race between brick and mortar stores in US and Indian Edition release is on...
Best wishes

Blood pressure normal? What do I change to get "magnificent"? Maybe this tiny ad?
