I am very pleased that you took the time to consult me on the price before just adding the additional shipping cost onto my credit card. Ordering things on-line, one runs into all kinds of less-than-considerate business practices... Thanks again for taking the time to contact me. I'm looking forward to the book. - Eric P.
