I believe that the second edition book is a direct reprint (no changes). Here is a reply from the distributor (the books are printed overseas for USA distribution):
The ship is due into port tomorrow. I would say the books will be to the warehouse around July 2. Of course that is assuming there are no customs delays. Once the book reaches the warehouse, it takes about 3-5 days for the stock to be put into inventory and to start shipping backorders.
So it'll be a couple of weeks before back orders go out. I wish I could give better news. They said that the books are selling so well that they sold out before they expected it.
If you have a local source for the book, and would rather not wait, you might want to pick it up soon. I noticed that Amazon UK has several in stock for immediate shipment.
Thanks for your patience!
