Hey Dave, what happened to your book?

I’ve received a growing number of emails and messages over the past several days, so I think I ought to address this. My book The New Cosmos was published by Cambridge University Press a couple weeks ago, and it is suddenly very hard to find. We’ve had some wonderful press and reaction, and the book is ranked #1 in Astronomy and Astrophysics on Amazon.com. But it has been temporarily unavailable from many sources since the first day it went on sale.

That is a nice problem to have, you might say, but it is a problem.

So please be patient. I think it will be back in stock shortly, and shipping. Part of the problem was a lack of anticipation of the great response to the book, and part of it is shipping copies from England to the United States, for many buyers. I still have just one copy of the book myself — no copies as yet to send to friends or those who helped me with the project.

You can order it at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Cambridge University Press.

And thanks for the wonderful words and reaction from those of you who have the book already. More on the way!
