View Full Version : Amazon’s Pre Ordering of books sucks!

08-26-2009, 03:50 PM
I pre-ordered a copy of the new, (first, only, best, and original) Pentaho book “Pentaho Solutions (http://www.amazon.com/Pentaho-Solutions-Business-Intelligence-Warehousing/dp/0470484322/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1251315325&sr=8-1)” by Roland Bouman and Jos van Dongen two weeks back. Saw from a tweet that the book was shipping from Amazon. Cool - had a look at the page. Sure, they can ship today if I get my order in on time so I know they can ship it.
How about my pre order, which I would assume would go out before regular orders? Won’t ship until next week? Delivered by 9/11/2009? Lesson learned - don’t pre order from Amazon. http://www.nicholasgoodman.com/bt/blog/wp-includes/images/smilies/icon_smile.gif
