    Odd - it's still listed as pre-order for june on amazon.com - you haven't been playing with that time machine again have you?

    ps. This is a graduate level GR class book right? Not like the "first three minutes".

    It was released in the UK at the end of last month.

    Yes, I'd say it was a graduate level book, but I think it's more of a Cosmology book than a GR book. I've not looked at it (since I've not found a bookshop that stocks it, and it's a bit too pricey to buy blind)) but I imagine it requires a firm background in GR.

    superpoincare: are you getting commission?

    Cristo... seriously asking me about commisions... mmm.. nope man .. I am a big Weinberg fan... I have read most parts of the quantum field theory texts... I am no longer in Physics (dropped out) and just wanted to share the excitement with some physicists...

    Thanks, Odd that it was published in the UK first - we normally have to wait an extra month for anything that isn't Harry Potter!

    I was only joking, don't take it too seriously! Thanks for letting us know, anyway.

    Yea, tell me about it! Still, it is published by Oxford University Press, so it's only fair we get it first.

    I think I am the first buyer of the book! I was regularly tracking it at amazon and one fine day it turned from preorder to available!
