Hey, what the heck! Amazon will list it sooner or later. At least they are being honest and not taking money against an order they are unable to fullfill. Yup, I'd like to browse Martin's latest now, but next month ain't going to hurt. Chill...

Hi all
According to the publisher, the new release date is Feb 7, 2010. I don't know why Amazon is cancelling orders, apparently they aren't interested in making money. So far Amazon has not canceled my order, and hopefully they won't.
Mike

PS: you can order direct from Focalpress.com for $39.95

Quite the opposite! After reading Alex's postings I am more than slightly curious about this new edition (I am sure many others are as well) having followed the evolution of the book since the 1st ed. My personal approach to UWP has changed considerably with digital and even more recently since card size is not longer a limit. I used 4GB cards before 2008 but now have up to 32GB. This has impacted my approach and wonder how this has affected his philosophy. Should be a good read.

However, one needs to exercise some patience. The book will come out, just not yesterday. Seems to me that ordering something before it is available is inviting trouble. Hopefully the delays were not due to some financial difficulty at the publisher, things being what they are with the economy.

Hi all,

I've just pre-ordered mine from Amazon (UK)

It was a bit cheaper than ordering it via Focal Press.

At least they are accepting pre-orders again. They cancelled my previous one, and I assumed (wrongly) that I would have to re-order it when it came out at the full price.

Well done amazon!

My daughter asked me what I wanted for Christmas and I told her it was Martin Edge's new book. I did warn her though, that she had to pre-order it and I didn't mind receiving it after Christmas.

So I think I can look forward to receiving soon it as a gift. Yay!

Maybe I am being really stupid (wouldn't be the first time), but, I can't seem to find it on Amazon :D I can find the 3rd Ed., but not the 4th.

Could anyone please point me in the right direction :drink: Either Amazon, or somewhere else I could lay my hands on a copy

Cheers

I'm pretty certain I saw that, and then for some obscure reason discounted it, as it said available in 10-12 days (I figured it would be longer than that).

Glad too see the end is in sight.

For those in the UK, Martin will be speaking at the February meeting of BSoUP - a great chance for signed copies.

End is in sight, just heard this from martin:

As anticipated, it's a big book and with the front-matter, index and glossary, will run to about 520 odd pages... I leave for a photo workshop in Lankayan next Thursday 21st January returning on 7th Feb. I expect to receive published copies on my return or around the 7th with supply to the shops and other usual outlets very soon after.
