Solaris Internals 2nd Edition - available!

Great news! Solaris Internals 2nd Edition is now available to purchase from sites such as Amazon. Amazon writes "Availability: Usually ships within 24 hours" - so in less than a day (I imagine a business day, if you are in the US), you could be holding this landmark book.

I've studied this edition from cover to cover, and it is incredible to see such a wide range of topics covered well, and at such a unique depth. It is the reference for the Solaris 10 and OpenSolaris kernel, and is written in an endearing way that makes this enormous topic very approachable.

I can't wait to get my hard copy of this book. I really enjoyed studying the content the first time, and I'll really enjoy revisiting the chapters.

Unfortunately Amazon UK is quoting September for delivery here ;-(

The new books are *not* yet available in Europe. More, I tried to place a order using amazon.com and they said expected delivery date: October 2006 ! So Im confused: where can you buy these books from if you are not located in US ?

Amazon.co.uk says sometimes in September as available. Please read what amazon.co.uk sent me:

"Greetings from Amazon.co.uk
We are sorry to report that we have contacted our supplier who have confirmed that the following item(s) in your order is/are no longer available:
Solaris Internals
We have cancelled the item(s) listed above, and your credit card has not been charged.
We sincerely apologise for this inconvenience. Until recently we still hoped to have obtained this item for you."

The channel distribution for SI&POD simple sucks big times !

Anyone available to help me to get these books before winter and wire the money for them, please !?
