Got my copy today. Wow. This is it. This is the big one. I suspect reading this will take a while.

Got mine. Exhaustive. It's like having a chunk of our "Zappalogy" in book form. First album I turned to was "Sleep Dirt", and I've already learned things I didn't know.

This one will be beside the toilet for a LONG time.

Charles, looking forward to your book!

On Saturday morning, amazon.de had 8 copies in stock, in the afternoon there was nothing left in stock. On the US site it says 14 right now with more on it's way...are you in any way aware of the way it's distributed and if I'd get a copy here soon...meaning: Is it a limited edition? I'd then order from amazon.us, if possible.

It's not a limited edition. New Star has lots of copies and ships them out as they're ordered. But presumably no vendor wants to order more copies than they think they can sell.

You can order directly from New Star Books and bypass the middleman.

Amazon orders directly from New Star. I don't know anything about how they allocate books to their various branches (.com, .ca, .co.uk, .de, etc.).

Most other vendors deal with a distributor. So there's an additional middleman. New Star > distributor > vendor > consumer.

If you're looking to save a few $$$, Amazon is four dollars cheaper and they offer free shipping. Checked just now and they have ten copies available.

I ordered my copy from Amazon.ca back in March. Still waiting for a delivery date.

I sent them an email to complain. They called me the same day to apologize and offered
to upgrade my order from "Free shipping" (4 to 8 days) to "Premium" (1 to 2 days)
at no extra cost, that's nice but still no book.

Thanks, Brett. I hope it sends some readers your way.

I think amazon.ca may get their books from amazon.com and then re-import them, which seems pretty silly if it's true.

Same here (no delivery date, originally it was May 26th), only difference being Amazon.de
Complaint sent, immediate reply (15' phone call + long email)
It is re-confirmed (as I knew) that all these Amazon local entities cannot interact. Separate warehouses and financial accounts, they would not trade goods among themselves.
I asked .de to get a book from .com and send it to me; they can't and they won't

However, apparently either Amazon is not asking New Star further copies or maybe it's sold out even there.

I ordered it directly from New Star Books one minute ago. A bit more expensive (with that Canada -> Germany shipping rate) than the cheapest offer on Amazon.de, but the latter at this point is only theoretical (as it's not available there).
