Damn! Why does this book seem like it's taking FOREVER to get released!

Hurry!

(I went to a couple of book stores to see if they had some copies accidently put on shelves.)

And now a word from our sponsor:

Hey UKers: "Catch A Wave" should be in your bookshops by next week. This according to the UK publisher.

Us Americans -- including yrs truly -- will have to wait 'til July.

Sure looks badass.

Don't you believe it, Peter - I've ordered via amazon.co.uk, who told me the book would be mailed 6/18, estimated delivery 6/19-20. As of right now, it's not been sent, according to the amazon order tracker.

Ohhhhhhhh... great - just checked the site itself, and the new, revised delivery schedule is 4-6 weeks !! It sure as foda didn't say that last week.

Hello Peter. CAW has arrived in Southampton, UK today - I asked on the off chance and it was on the trolley ready to go out on the shelf. I have it and it will be great reading this weekend. Have a great one folks - ring your local Waterstones. Price £18.99. Must cancel my Amazon order - still saying 4 weeks!! Have a great weekend. Ian

My amazon order is already cancelled. Now what's the betting the book turns up on the site as a "1-2 days delivery" ?  Angry

OK... once and for all... WHEN is this book going to be released on shelves?? Anyone? (Last I heard on this thread was on July).

Damn. Seems like it's taking FOREVER.

Been out in the UK for about  two, three weeks.  Cool

Have you read it yet AGD? Noticed it credits your own book - probably Peter's just covering his back  Wink

I liked it. Thought it probably the most readable of all the biogs to date.  Also like the slightly different slant it takes presently Brian's difficulties over the years and wish Peter had quoted Peter Reum even more on that score. That, I feel, is one of the book's strengths.

Also found the book to be quit well balanced, despite coming from an author who's obviously very much a fan.

Now a favourite, alongside Kingsley's BBs Reader, LLVS, Leaf's Myth (which badly needs updating with no sycophantic smaltz please!) and the first edition of AGD's own which is small enough to smuggle into the smallest room for a secret read.

I like it a lot and would recommend it to anyone from newbie to hard-core. Sure, there are factual nits to pick, but no BB book's ever going to be without those. A well-written, generally balanced view of Brian's life and work work. Easier to assimilate than Tim White's equally essential tome, and updates the last decade or so admirably. But don't listen to what i have to say - go buy it, and read it yourself. It's a book about Brian & The BB, ergo it's worthwhile... more than most.

Runalot: Dude, tell me about it. 'Cause if it's any consolation Rodale hasn't gotten me MY copies of the book yet. The UK publisher got me a few of their edition, but when it comes to the good ol' USA....everyone else has theirs (my agent; my editor; the publicist; their friends and relatives) but little ol me is still waiting.

Any day now, they say. Any day now.
