- Order processing is provided by Geos Fulfillment, and this is the company that will receive your Paypal payment.
- Please allow 1-2 business days for shipping plus 2-5 days transit time for priority mail (longer for international orders). We do our best to put your order in the mail the next business day when it is the start of a new academic term. Shipped from Pennsylvania; PA sales tax applies to in-state orders. Shipping charges are included in price. If you are in a bigger hurry consider ordering it from Amazon.com
- International orders (Canada and Mexico only!): You must provide us with a valid local telephone number or we can't ship to your international address due to postal regulations. You are responsible for and must pay any customs, handling, and similar fees imposed by your destination country. Shipping time is via postal service and varies by country and are beyond our control. Usually it is about one week, but we have seen delays of up to 5 weeks if your customs service decides to set aside your package for some reason, and this is something we have no control over. As a courtesy we will provide your instructor a free advance copy to keep on reserve at your library to fill the gap for any students who suffer delays.
- All academic orders must use a paypal linked .edu e-mail address OR must respond to a query to the .edu address you provide us within 24 hours of placing order.

Policies & fine print
We normally ship products to US addresses via USPS with delivery confirmation. If your tracking info indicates delivery has occurred it really just means your local post office has the package. If you don't get the package within a day visit or call your local post office and see if they want you to come pick it up.
International orders are also shipped via US Postal Service unless otherwise indicated. We consider your order to have been filled when shipped. Unfortunately we cannot accept responsibility for whether non-US postal services deliver goods. (Insurance for non-US destinations is prohibitively expensive.) Any customs fees, duties, taxes, or procedures beyond filling out the originating customs forms are your responsibility.
Returns are accepted of un-read, unmarked books in new condition, received within 30 days at the buyer's expense with the goods in unused condition, able to be re-sold as new. You must contact us before initiating a return. We are unable to accept returns with markings, highlighting, stickers, folds, scratches, or other physical damage, and will not be able to pay postage to return such books to you if you send them to us. (However, you can probably recoup a lot of the book value by selling is used on Amazon.) If you do not package the book adequately when you ship it back to us, we cannot assume responsibility for damage in transit. If your goods are received in damaged condition please save the packing materials and contact us for instructions. You must initiate contact with us within 3 days of receipt of damaged goods to file a claim. In light of the high cost of shipping, returns of non-defective goods may have an amount approximately equal to our our postage costs deducted from credit. If your package is returned as undeliverable due to an address problem that is your fault, we reserve the right to charge for postage on a second shipment attempt and/or refund the non-postage part of your order at our discretion.
You do not need a Paypal account to use a credit card, and there are no fees to you. However, in some circumstances Paypal anti-fraud measures require you to register or validate your address for orders to be accepted. We are not responsible for situations in which Paypal refuses your payment, but contact us if this happens to you and we may be able to work out an alternate arrangement such as payment directly to us by personal check or money order. We reserve the right to adjust billing or provide a refund, at our option, if there is an error in computing shipping costs, billing, missing phone number for international shipments, or an order is erroneously accepted to a destination to which we do not provide shipment. You have the right to cancel your order before it ships if you do not agree to the adjustment, and we will make sure you have a reasonable opportunity to do so.
Unfortunately we have to charge sales tax within PA because only campus book stores are exempt for textbook sales. But if you bought this book through your book store you'd probably be paying about $140 for it.
PRIVACY: We won't give your name or contact information to anyone except our order fulfillment partner for the purposes of completing your order. We may contact you for order follow-up, or on rare occasion to announce a new edition or specifically book-related event such as an author signing or author lecture in your area. If we start a mailing list we will give you the opportunity to opt out. If you have specific privacy requests please use the e-mail address above and we will be happy to work with you on addressing any special concerns. We direct you to Paypal to pay, so we do not have access to your credit card information and therefore do not store it.
