thats around $34 plus another $12 shipping..

would there be a cheaper amazon version.

IMO, it would seem a bit expensive for most of us in the U.S.

My books are not available through Amazon. The conditions they impose on
independent publishers like myself are close to extortion and defy the
whole purpose of selling something in the first place.
I am aware of the exchange rate effect and the price point this can
result in, but unfortunately there is little I can do about this.
(In the mean time, orders from the USA are in fact streaming in -
apparently enough people think it's worth the money..)

thanks Rob.

yes. your books do have value.. I was speaking from more a general
audience perspective.

I did order quite a lot of books of Trevor Moore's IQ book from sometime
back, as gifts for a IT competition I held, after I reviewed the book.

I do see how so many authors in the US write competitive math textbooks,
and sell it so cheap, that without them, we would never have such young
and bright mathematicians (many go on to win the mathcount or US
olympiad). I always would do the same, if I ever find the time to author
a book, when my kids are in college to do something good..
