Availability Outside the USA?
 
Hi,

I just wanted to ask whether there are any non-US-retailers who offer the book? I've tried local amazon, amazon.co.uk, but no luck. Basically, I would not mind ordering from the US, if there were not always the same problems with customs.

Amazon fulfills these orders directly, so it's not a mom and pop shipping operation. Do they not do well in the UK shipping from the US? That's interesting.

The book is available from Amazon at US, but not from the international Amazon branches. Quite a number of people have already ordered it from the UK in particular, and I have not heard of any customs issues.

It might be different in the UK than it is in other European countries, but there of course is a custom limit if you import items from the US, no matter whether you buy from amazon or a small retailer. The annoying thing for people living in Austria (like me) is that you pay a completely disproportional additional fee to the Austrian post service aside from the marginal custom-tax.

Thanks for the info, I'll just give it a try then.

We checked with Amazon US and it appears that the book can be shipped to Russia. If the problem persists, please send an email to lfdbook@gmail.com with the full address you intend to ship to, or to the customer service of Amazon ( https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/conta...questions.html ). Thank you and sorry about the trouble.

Hello All:

I am in Venezuela. I ordered my copy from Amazon 3 days ago and it arrived today at my house. I am very favorably impressed about the speed of the shipment, not to mention the quality of the book itself. Thank you Professor Yaser for making such a high quality educational material (I mean the book, the video lectures and this course in general) available to so many people worldwide.

You are most welcome on behalf of myself and my co-authors Professors Magdon-Ismail and Lin. I am pleased to hear about the speed of delivery, which has been an issue for some of our international readers.

Thank you for the information. Just to make sure, was this purchased through Amazon USA to a Canada mailing address?
