Before we go any further: Are you buying from outside Australia? We would love to ship this book to you BUT you must be studying at an Australian institution to buy this title from us at this price. Why? Because when we process your order we are required to provide to our supplier a confirmation of your student name, student ID and the institution. You really need it? We CAN still sell to overseas students however we need to advise you of the (unfortunately) higher price after you place your order. You can then decide whether you'd still like to proceed or cancel the order. That's just how it is. (sigh...) And of course, we wish you all the best with your studies : )
