I don't know when I'll be able to get this book. Tried Amazon.ca, they say usually 3-5 weeks required and yet unsure. Try on Chapters-Indigo (online) they say 'temporarily unavailble'. Go to any store, not existing...This is drving me crazy, I am hearing the same rhetoric for last 6 or 7 weeks. Can anybody please, let me know where can I get this book in Canada,(Toronto). By the way, I was in Montreal last weekend and I scooped for it there too without any luck.

Thanks

We just got another update from O'Reilly... they said Amazon got their order and immediately sold out, and now a new order has been sent and is sitting in their warehouse. When they (Amazon) have not yet put a new order into inventory, they put up the "3 to 5 weeks" message even if the next day it changes back to "ships in 24 hours". It's just what they say when they don't have the books ready to go. O'Reilly confirmed that Amazon has the books and simply has to put them back in inventory, and that should take another day or two.

As for Barnes and Noble and other stores, apparently they did not place a big enough order, so each store got only one or two copies. They (B & N) are trying to fix that now. The book is shipping from B&N online now, though. And yesterday for the first time, I finally saw it at a store here in Colorado -- at a Borders!! The local Barnes and Noble store here said that they do not have it yet.

It looks like everybody--Amazon and B&N especially -- simply did not place a large enough order, and now they're trying to catch up. There are PLENTY of books printed, though, so it's just a matter of waiting a few more days or a week until *everyone* has it and it's just like any other book. This is just the temporary weird thing they go through at the beginning, except that nobody (us and O'Reilly) thought that it would take THIS long to correct the initial problems getting the book out there.

So again, even though it has sold out of the online retailers, they are restocking right now, and should start shipping them again in a day or two.

We're so sorry!!

Thanks for this last big of patience,
-Kathy
