Default Re: Will the book become available again?

In either event, the link on the above page leads to this page:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listi...&condition=new

... which is a list of third party vendors.
However, note that for the seller AMLbook it says "Fulfillment by Amazon". If you click that, it explains thusly:

Quote:
Items "Fulfilled by Amazon" are shipped from an Amazon fulfillment center to you. All of our standard shipping rates and policies apply to these items when shipped within the U.S., including FREE Super Saver Shipping on qualifying orders over $25 and Prime shipping. International shipping may not be available for all items.

"Fulfilled by Amazon" items are sent to you via one of our carriers (US Postal Service, UPS, FedEx, and so on.) at whatever delivery speed you choose (standard shipping, 2-day shipping, and so on).

After you place an order, the carrier, ship date, and estimated delivery date for your package will be listed in Your Account and can be found in your shipment confirmation e-mail. If you have a tracking or delivery confirmation number, you can track your package by clicking the "Track packages" link in Your Account.

Amazon also handles all customer service and product returns for "Fulfilled by Amazon" items. If you need assistance with anything, please visit our Help pages by clicking the word "Help" at the top of any page of our website.
There is a description for merchants of how this works here. Basically, the merchant (e.g., AMLbook) has already shipped copies to Amazon. Amazon stores those copies in their warehouse, just like they store the items they themselves sell. When you buy from AMLbook through Amazon, Amazon employees retrieve a copy from the warehouse, pack it, and ship it to you.
