When will FETA hit Bookstores?
Several people have written to ask when From Emotions to Advocacy will be available in bookstores. Good question. It takes 4-6 months before a book gets into the distribution system for chain bookstores. We do not expect FETA to be available in retail bookstores until early 2002.
Online bookstores like Amazon.com and bn.com get new books more quickly. However, online bookstores will not have the book for several weeks.
