    I'd love to buy the ebook, but the Kobo bookstore won't let me buy it in the UK. Any idea when it will be possible to buy the epub ebook in the UK. I know I can download one for free from this site, but I find the "commercial interlude" annoying, and anyway, I would rather buy it.

    I can't purchase the ebook from the Australian version of the online stores I have accounts on. Which is silly as I've had the paper version on preorder for a few months and expect it to arrive by post any day now.

    When will publishers stop making getting ebooks so hard? I'm afraid you've lost a sale for the ebook, hopefully the paper copy sale counts.

    Kindle version is not available in Hong Kong via amazon (shows "not available"). Apple/Sony/Kobo don't even consider HK at all; perhaps we get lumped with China in the too hard basket. Import/shipping here doubles the price.

    At least I can normally get kindle stuff here; will look at either buying a paperback when I see it (not likely in HK) or donating a copy to a library which sounds like a nice idea :-)

    Would love to buy the eBook, but as techxplorer mentioned, it's not available in Australia. *Sigh* I'm thinking of applying for US digital citizenship.

    would love to buy it as an ebook, but paperback is cheaper than e-book ?
    (14,36 vs. 18.01$) uh..

      Not my doing, but I take your point. Look at it this way: you can buy the hardcover and get the ebook for free and make a savings

        jep, and e-book proce dropped to abaout 9€ on amazon. And wondering if amazon is able to deliver a drm free kindle e-book...

    The Google Book link seems partially broken: it claims "no ebook available" and has no buy option...

    Is there an ETA on the audiobook version of this book?

    I want to buy it but Google Books says there is "No eBook available". I'm on vacation in Argentina. Argentinians aren't allowed to buy this book for some reason? :(

      Are you trying to buy the English edition? There shouldn't be any problem. Could you email me and I'll take it up with my publisher? Thanks!
