The book arrived yesterday morning. I cannot get over the fact that I ordered a book from New York USA late on Friday, it arrives in Newbury UK on Monday morning... Wow! That's what I call an excellent, almost unbelievably good level of service. I will be buying from Argosy Books again (I hope) and using DHL from now on. So thank you very much indeed, I am very pleased with it. - Ken D.
