I see "Secrets of the JavaScript Ninja" is listed as:
pBook available December 31
ePub + Kindle available Jan 15

Why is the print book available earlier than the electronic one? This seems backwards.

The PDF is already available -- those enrolled in the MEAP have already received theirs. The print book should be out of the bindery tomorrow!

I've noticed that the ePub and Kindle versions come later than the PDF. I'm guessing it's because they can generate the PDF in-house, and have to send out for the other formats.
