According to Amazon UK, this had a release date of 28th of May this year (Monday just gone). I placed a pre-order a couple of weeks ago, and it now says the book is released, but temporarily out of stock. Am I to take it that Amazon have got the dates wrong?

Yes, Amazon is very definitely wrong! I'm still writing the book, then it needs to go through editing, production, printing etc...

If you're able to cancel your Amazon order though, you can get the early access edition from Manning directly. (I realize you may have chosen to use Amazon for hard copy, to avoid shipping costs.)

Well they're now saying that they're expecting it in September or October, which might not be correct, but is a least in the future.

Their price is quite good (£26.53 including postage), and I've got a few other books I need to read (and I have an earlier edition on loan too), so I'll probably wait rather than cancel unless the MEAP combo price drops.
