The book is published and available in the UK. You can buy it from amazon UK (www.amazon.co.uk) who should be able to ship it to the US in time for your course.

The copies 'to be published' in America are the same books, but distributed by Trafalgar Books. It just takes time to ship them by sea from the UK to the US. I don't know what the price will be in the US. They are 2.99 UK pounds in the UK. Less if you order from Amazon.

I have already had lecturers in the UK tell me that they are using the books because they are compact, cheap, and lead their students onto other sources (books, videos, websites).
