Book: Commodore The Amiga Years

According to Amazon this book becomes available on 1 october but if memory serves me right this book had previously broken release dates.

Does anyone know if this release date is actually correct?

Commodre The Amiga Years

Hi to everyone,
I came across this book that will be soon on libraries. I already got Commodore a Company on the Edge by the same author and for me it's a quiet good book.But the second one, I think, is a must for every Amiga maniac

Indeed, the original book and the early years version were both brilliant. Now we just have to wait for the release date!

It's pretty damn useless to start a second thread about the same book when my post isn't even of the main page.

Do people actually read anything here..... ?

No idea, but I hope someone will update this thread when it will be for sale. I liked the first part. Perhaps Amigakit know more?

At the moment it looks like this book has not been released. This is what Amazon says anyway and I didn't get a shipping notification.

I have asked the publisher weeks ago about when it is released but I haven't heard anything yet. Has anyone some more information?

Just got a message from Amazon saying they are trying to obtain a new release date.

Apparently the publisher didn't even notify a new release date.

I haven't seem to be able to access variantpress.com for a couple of days now (the publisher). however, judging by the IPG it is about to arrive next month:

The first book were such a great read i'm really looking forward to this one.

Still no book and no reaction from the publisher. That isn't looking good.

Their website also is still gone. It's like they dropped of the face of the earth.

Probably gone through the Medhi Ali printing press of doom!

They've been putting this book on/off for months now. I got fed up of waiting and gave up!
