I believe there was only an initial printing of 5000 copies... am I wrong?
Anyone?

is this book really that good that there is a big back order on it?
What is your take on the book?

Subject: amazon's back orders [was: Re: FLASH: Flash 4 Bible - Amazon?]


hi folx, thought i'd drop in to give some real numbers about amazon's
order fulfillment. i have about 250 orders on record that came from my
site. of those, 132 have been shipped. i don't know if they shipped them
according to date-of-order or randomly.

amazon seems to be shipping about 20-30 orders a day from my list of
back orders, but of course, they're receiving and shipping orders that i
don't know about as well (i only know of the ones that were placed
through my site).

so, if you ordered the book through my site and you still haven't
received it, you will likely be getting it in the next week or two.

if you don't get it in that time, make sure to write amazon to find out
if they have run out of copies from the first printing. if they have,
you may want to snag one from a bookstore instead, or ask them exactly
when the copies from the 2nd printing will arrive.

hope that helps clear things up...

This was the case with me. I noticed the discrepancy between their
ordering
page for the book, which lists availability as shipping in 24 hours, and
my
account page, which showed 1 to 2 weeks. I then called them, and their
customer service dept. told me that I had been placed on the "reorder
list,"
that copies had come in but they had run out. I regarded this as an
inadequate excuse given that I had preordered the book on December 1st.

Apologies to Colin Moock -- I ordered it through your site to give you
that
Amazon commission, but this kind of customer service on Amazon's part
drove
me to cancel my order. I'm going to buy it locally.
