Wow, 50% - that's pretty awesome. Amazon seems to be carrying an aggressive kick-off campaign to TDPL. This is a good sign; a similar campaign worked well for Modern C++ Design. By the way, UK sales are almost equal in gross volume to US sales, which means they're much higher percentage-wise. Kudos to UK hackers! Andrei

Although the price is very good on Amazon, one needs to wait till
August to get a copy of the book.

I've followed the advice from some other people on the NG,
cancelled my amazon order and went to Informit ($49.99 + $9 to
ship to the UK).

Ordered it last week Thursday and it's already shipped by
now...can't wait to get my hands on it!

who
now have it listed as "dispatched within 48 hours", so hopefully won't have to
wait too long :-)

I just got a message from Amazon.co.uk saying the book will be delivered between 8-15 July. I can wait for one month if it saves me 50% off the price. ;) -Lars

I see Amazon has two "used" copies at $77.14.

Why would anyone try to sell a copy at double the price of new, when the new is 
in stock and shipping?

Probably the same reason the ask prices for stock go up to 100 times their value at the end of the day. Some people are dumb, and click without thinking. -Steve

These must be computed prices, based on the bestseller lists, and since this book is just released and already in top 100 (currently #88) in Programming/Language and Tools (complete 24,029) ... :) greets Matthias
