Amazon should remove it

I see that the book has now been pushed back to 31 july 2013. This must be about the tenth push back.

I think Amazon should remove the book because this obviously isn't ready. Anyone know where I can ask Amazon to make changes to the product catalog? I don't want to see the book back on the site untill it is actually released.

I got "a Commodore 64 walkabout" recently and it's pretty good, has lots of stuff to try.

A small bump for this thread.

Looks like the publisher still has a release date of July 1st. Amazon UK say July 31st. I really hope it doesn't get pushed back again.

You'd wonder if one of the dudes who burned down Commodore is actually creating a stink about the book; it can't be saying nice things about the old management after all

And again the dead line has passed. A year has gone by without this book arriving.

Their website is online again but if you ask them a question you get no response what so ever. Pretty irritating.

I guess that explains why Amazon shipped my company on the edge book by items when I'd asked for combined shipping.

The status on the book on amazon.co.uk website before august was available on 31 july. For Amazon.com it was 1 july. But also in America the book hasn't been released yet.

I don't mind delays but at least tell us why. They were eager to announce the book a couple of months ago as releasing soon but when there is a delay..... nothing.

UPDATE: Just got an email from Amazon that they are still trying to obtain the book. So no release yet.

So, I got the email from Amazon about "still trying to obtain" the book. It must be almost two years since the first release date.

Ir's a shame because the first book is very good.
