This request is obviously to the authors: Very few Manning books have been released in India compared to say the oreilly's / wrox / addision wesley titles ( they release almost, all the books). I'm not sure why manning is behind considering the fact that they publish some of the best books out there. I guess manning has tied up with shroff distributers in India ( very well known for publishing oreilly / wrox titles in India) and it w'd be great if you c'd pursuade manning to release more titles here. Oreilly and Wrox are popular brands and i guess Manning deserves a lot more and we have a huge market here :-). I have tried mailing both manning and the distributors here but then obviously am a non-entity and the requests fell on deaf ears. W'd be great if the authors c'd atleast let Manning know that we are looking forward to having their titles here. thanks.

Good Suggestion,Kartik,but i guess that the publishers must be deciding on what market conditions must a book be made available to a particular country.ie what technologies are hot and what will be the demand for such books.

One more factor is the price. Indian ed books cost less than their US eds.

For one thing, I have found that Manning publishes books on real hot topics (Struts/ANT for eg and now EJB) and as for price, well, the paper quality is anyways inferior to a US edition book. Manning books (here in India) sell @ almost the same price as a oreilly book. I just hope/pray that they will try to bring on more of their titles over here.

I apologize for pushing this post up the stack!
Can I expect the author to do this for the readers from the Indian subcontinent :-)?. We dont want to be deprived of books on such topics!
thanks.

Hi All, it's great to hear that Manning books are so in demand. I just handle the publicity and marketing, so I can't give you a definitive reason why they are not sold widely in India. I'm sure it is an economical decision, perhaps the distributors', the booksellers, or who knows? But, if you keep asking the distributor for Manning books, they are bound to increase their representation. Here's where you can place your requests:
Shroff Publishers & Distributors Pvt. Ltd.
Contact: Order Department
C-103, TTC Industrial Area
MIDC, Pawane
Navi Mumbai 400 701
Tel Board (91 22) 763 4290, 768 9126 x 118
Fax: (91 22) 768 3337
E-mail: spdorders@shroffpublishers.com

Best of Luck!
