Is this book available in ebook format for purchase?

I checked the Publisher,McGraw-Hill Osborne Media site and they have an ebook which I think was before it was completed as the published date was in Nov and also the table of contents indicate that it is missing this important JSF Portlet Appendix.

Appreciate if anyone has purchased the ebook of this book and can point me in the right direction.

Also, Amazon has a Kindle version here:

Google Books has a preview of the book here, but the Appendix is not viewable:
