Don't worry, I'd have seen it, anyway :)

Need a cheaper copy, as the first one cost me 500 quid or somesuch.

This seems like a lot of hype for a book that is probably only worth €100-€200 at best.

What do you guys think?


I'd agree with you.

Off topic, but postage everywhere seems to be getting steep. And if you are unlucky enough to live in Australia, buying second hand books has become prohibitive, except for the expensive stuff where the postage isn't the biggest component of the purchase.

Fortunately, my in-laws are in the UK, so I bombard them with parcels from eBay through the year and my wife brings as many back for me as she can get away with in her luggage when she goes back each year. Just got a small suitcase of books delivered by my good wife last week, in fact!

In the old days, I would just buy the cheap stuff in the US and UK and send surface mail, but since that option is no longer available, I'd be stuffed if it wasn't for this arrangement.

Or until the price drops down to a level most suited to a generic fairly ugly fireplace...
