I ordered the book from Amazon (as opposed to a 3rd-party seller), and was told the book would ship in 4-6 weeks. 5 weeks later, I get E-mail from Amazon saying that the new expected delivery date will be 4 weeks later.

The first time this happened, I canceled my order and went looking for a faster means to get the book. Prices seem to jump around a lot, so I delayed, and ended up ordering again from Amazon. Surprise! My 4-6 week delivery date has just been pushed back another 4 weeks.

Something to keep in mind if you decide to order from Amazon instead of a reseller.

I just bought it from Borders using a 40% off (Yes 40% off) coupon that I got for last thanksgiving.

Sweet. (Borders has a relationship with Amazon, yet Amazon seems to have trouble acquiring copies of the book. Go figure.)

Amazon prices are arbitrary. It varies from one day to next like Airline ticket prices. Though I see some logic in Airline price variation I am yet to find any explanation for Amazon Price variations except as an attempt to gouge the naive.

"Moreover, it's a lousy book and even for free you don't need it."

Too funny.
