Looks to me like the only option is the $99.95 signed copies.

Bummer.

Oh memories.

Rereading that was almost as entertaining as the first time.

You cannot stay on the summit forever; you have to come down again. So why bother in the first place? Just this: What is above knows what is below, but what is below does not know what is above. One climbs, one sees. One descends, one sees no longer, but one has seen. There is an art of conducting oneself in the lower regions by the memory of what one saw higher up. When one can no longer see, one can at least still know. - Rene Daumal

Oh, God, Bean.....what have you done?!?!

Too good to be true? Maybe, we'll see. I just ordered a copy and you have to jump through a bunch of hoops before finalizing the order. Hopefully my identity doesn't get stolen or my credit card used in some foreign country here soon.

I'm not sure how many copies they might have, but $13 for the book and the $12 for shipping seems to be a much better deal than anywhere else I could find in the last 45 minutes.

Let us know if it works out. Sounds almost too good to be true!

Yeah, the website seemed a bit creepy to me, so I backed out. Why would they need to know the last 4 numbers of your social security number, then start asking "security questions" about your prior addresses, places that are close to your current address, etc. ???

Not sure I would want to give all that sort of info to a company based in Cyprus...

In the end I guess it was too good to be true, one way or another. I emailed their customer service department asking where they would be shipping the book from considering they are located in Cyprus and I paid for ground shipping. I received an email back telling me my order had been cancelled due to the book not being in stock. My checking account has been refunded already.

I guess from now on I'll check to see where such companies are located when something seems too good to be true.
