    No PDF ordering available as of March 31st. I\’m really looking forward to reading your 2007 R2 guide!

    On Apil 6th still no pre-order. I really want to buy the combo package… I am old-school and like to read paper books but I also want to be able to utilize the PDF either on an iPAD or notebook.

    Please see updated posting regarding availability. I don\’t know why the availability date "still" hasn\’t been updated at – I have asked the publisher to change the date. The fact that there are these separate pages is related to the history of developing this book – because it originally was going to be an eBook only. eBooks cannot be preordered … so until its actually available (sometime this coming week!) you can\’t order it. Leonard, you should be able to order the bundle by April 16 at The eBook price, as part of the bundle, will be very inexpensive.Thanks to all for your patience!

    April 16th and no eBook availability. Would also like to order the bundle whenever possible.

  6. Operations says:

    Yes I know. Its been frustrating for us as well. I\’ve been asking the publisher every day since April 16, and was assured this morning that the ebook (and bundle) would be available for order tomorrow (Thursday April 22). Let\’s hope it really happens!
