Perhaps you should have gone for the electronic download option thru CickBank?

When I enquired, Mr Massie emailed me and said that they are a small outfit and thus the only distributors for the book. If you've gone down the self-publishing route, you'll appreciate the difficulties and expense of doing small print runs. I got the feeling that his preference was for me to download the electronic version.

I would email Mike personally and enquire about the purchase - i.e. if you purchased it from him directly. See if you can swap it for the electronic version and get a refund on the hardcopy.

PM me for email details, or see if you can find it on his website.

Silly question: did Doc move and/or leave a forwarding address? I don't think a month is that long to wait for a small outfit. I have had some darn long waits for certain items (I once ordered a set of teacups from Scotland...and it took a year due to low production).

Practice breathing...

Gee, why didn't I think to leave a forwarding address The guy that purchased my old house probably has received it and has opened his own dojo and has made a fortune!

I have been receiving mail (all forwarded) in a timely manner.

I have mostly been playing the wait game. What Eyrie says about independent publishers is true.

As Kintama and I have discussed in the past, this was more of an experiment than anything else. If the book arrives and is useful, great! If it arrives and is useless, we all get to say "I told you so" and the expense for us was minimal. If it doesn't arrive at all, well, we know whom we are dealing with.

Am I a little P!$$ed? Yeah. But I'll give him a few more weeks because of small companies and production runs.

Thanks Harlan. I'll remember to practice breathing

To start with, I can't afford it. I got royally reamed for spending $20 on a cheapo sword the last time I bought from ebay. Also, I'm not impressed with the ebay page. Nor am I impressed with all the "reviews". I would advise any instructor who is thinking of buying this book to consider whether they could actually throw $107 away first. They could just as well be better off going to the nearest community/junior college, and spending the money on a bookkeeping/business administration course.

In my opinion, e-bay isn't the problem...I buy and sell stuff on there all the time, never had a problem except one package from England getting lost by my local mail.
I look at e-bay as a world community flea market. it's great.... however I've spent a fortune on bargans
