Chopra talked about the book on O'Reilly last night - it may be on youtube, I didn't see it.

I'm a publishing noob. Why does it take so long?

Multiple edits/formatting.
Getting permissions for quotes.
Marketing plans and budget approval.
Galleys, printing, advance sales/marketing to retailers.
Catalog planning.
etc.

One year is actually pretty fast. I know some folks whose books were contracted and then aren't scheduled for release until 2 years later.
1 year is actually good, given the standard.
