    They were supposed be out on the 28th November in the UK but I had a message saying it would now be the 19th December...

    They were supposed to come out in Late October, then it was Early November, then Late November, then 3 or 4 different dates in December. When I checked last night Cisco Press listed it as Dec. 17 and Amazon.com as Dec. 19. I would buy ROUTE and SWITCH if they could simply guarantee me when the books will be released. The odd part is that both books are available for Kindle and the ROUTE book has been on Safari (essentially complete) for a month or more. For some odd reason, Safari still doesn't have the complete SWITCH OCG.

    I blame the Switch book for the dely, the last one was absolute not worthy of reading. Hopefully the new one is decent.

    I jumped on the Cisco press sale and ordered the Route book a couple days ago. When I ordered it said pre-order, but later that day it went to shipping. I am supposed to get the book today, so I am guessing at least route is ready. :D

    I thought this might happen but i wanted the discount of the bundle buying them one by one costs a lot more

    I just bought ROUTE (300-101) on Ciscopress.com. With the HOL2014 discount code, it came to $46.51 including Overnight shipping, which is surprisingly cheaper than Amazon.

    You have seen where it is ready to be shipped ?

    I go on the ciscopress site and it still says December 30th ?

    I ordered a month ago on ciscopress. Only one that has shipped is tshoot a few days ago. Fuming, the other 2 just say backordered...
  • JustFredJustFred Posts: 678Member ■■■□□□□□□□
    I ordered them back October, I'm still waiting, their site says back ordered.

    My Tshoot book just arrived today in the UK.....quite a big book...read a few pages and it is written pretty well. Easy to understand.

    Did you received a message that it has been shipped or did it just landed on your doorstep out of the blue? I'm in Europe as well so i'm hoping at least one of the books turns up soon.

    Received my ROUTE Book yesterday (Texas) and should be receiving the T-SHOOT book today..
    I also ordered all 3 for 33 dollars a piece, back in October.

    Received e-mail update on my order. Route will arrive Thursday, T-Shoot Friday. Who knows on Switch. No matter, I'm doing Route first anyway.

    Received my route last night. Got an email saying my switch and tshoot has been canceled o.O lol
  • jaychou_ukjaychou_uk Posts: 16Member ■□□□□□□□□□
    I received an email to advise it will be shipped yeah.
  • dsgmdsgm Posts: 228Member
    Why have i gotten none of these emails, i have no information from ciscopress, just the email that it was ordered, i ordered the trill book afterwards and received that already
  • JustFredJustFred Posts: 678Member ■■■□□□□□□□
    I did not receive any e-mail either, sending Ciscopress an e-mail is also not worth, it took them two weeks to reply. lol
