No one knows exactly - Oreilley is working as fast as possible - Amazon dates are all over the place - if you have a look in this forum there are loads of threads describing whats going on - and Bert has put some pages from the illusive book up on wickedlysmart too

Alfred, et. al.,

O'Reilly will have books to Amazon in less than two weeks. Now it's not clear whether Amazon ordered enough books, because the pre-sales have been strong. Our general experience with Amazon is that you have to take their dates with a grain of salt - I actually think that given all the variables they deal with, they do an amazing job, but they often have some out of date data on their site.

I really think they'll be shipping in about two weeks.
