    What...no leather-bound, signed & numbered limited editions? Publisher is missing a bet.

    @Mathiasc - Thanks for your interest. We've enabled international sales, but this may take a few more days (assuming there is not some other limitation we're not aware of). Some inventory was shipped to the east coast that hasn't arrived yet to Amazon's distribution center there. At the moment, all sales are going out of the California center. My guess is they would ship to Europe from there.

    So my guess - try next Monday. If it still is not working let me know via the contact us section: http://teslatap.com/contact-us/

    Error: "kWh - 1,000 Watts per hour of electricity." That would be kw/h.

    Watts is already a rate (Coulombs of charge per second). What kwh means is "charge quantity equal to integrating 1000 watts over one hour."

    @wcalvin Thanks for your note. While you're correct for one form kW/h, we purposely elected to use the shorter kWh form as Tesla does throughout their site and is defined on Wikipedia. I think it's easier to read. Because of possible confusion that's one reason we define the kWh term in the front of the book.

    For a few examples where Tesla uses kWh: http://www.teslamotors.com/charging#/onthego

    For Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kilowatt_hour

    Very nice. I'm guessing (hoping?) you'll be kept busy with updates!

    Great work! Love the timeline sample page (being a project manager). Do you offer ebook version (with videos)?

    @jeyado - Tesla is a fast moving operation! We were making changes up to the very last minute. We created an updates/errata page on our website to handle changes after the printing.

    @Cindy123 - Sorry no ePub version yet. We're considering it, but it requires a major re-layout, which is quite time-consuming. We're also concerned that the high-definition images we use will not come out all that well in the ePub version. Unfortunately, ePub is not well designed for a photo heavy book like this.

    I think you misunderstood wcalvin's note. When you say "kWh - 1,000 Watts per hour of electricity", you are certainly providing a confusing definition.

    I think you meant to say:

    "kWh - 1,000 Watts of electricity for one hour"

    To quote the Wikipedia page you referenced:

    The kilowatt-hour (symbolized kWh) is a unit of energy equivalent to one kilowatt (1 kW) of power expended for one hour.

    "per hour" and "for an hour" are quite different.

    @AoneOne - you're right! I thought wcalvin wanted it changed to kW/h. I'll change it on the next printing, I've also added it to our errata page: http://teslatap.com/books/updates-and-errata/

    Thanks wcalvin & AoneOne.

    Now I would have expected a book about an electric car to be available on Kindle ;)

    Would love to buy, but Amazon.com says it won't ship to Europe... Any chance of getting stock this side of the pond?

    Just ordered a copy. Thanks

    @Brian H - No copy for Broder (unless he buys it!).

    @Lycanthrope - Sorry for the issues with Europe. We're hopeful European availability will be on line by Monday November 25th. It may be the inventory needs to arrive on the East coast before it will be shipped (and it should arrive shortly). If we can't get it working we'll have to figure out something else!

    @Tap - do send one to Broder, please!
    Oh, and John Peterson too.
    ;-)
