it's listed on books in print so it's simply a question of when the publishers choose to list it. Some publishers don't use books in print. The Barnes and Noble deal is rather good -- they will make a loss on every copy.

well i havent received the proof yet and they can't ship till I approve the proof. Why they've cancelled your order I do not know. Except possibly that they realized that they would make a loss on it.

OK it now in stock on both amazon.com and Barnes and Noble. Amazon.com won't ship outside the US, however, it seems. It is listed on amazon.co.uk but not available yet. Wilmott bookshop seem to be behind the curve!

it's starting to look like the best way to price american puts so i was interested enough to learn it and it seems neat. So I included a chapter .There is always a certain amount of guess work about what is up and coming and I think this probably is so it was a good chance to get something different but relevant and interesting in the book.In "concepts", including a chapter on variance gamma was a similar punt -- fairly obscure at the time but now quite standard material.
