Terms and Conditions of Sale


You may purchase books securely online using MasterCard, Visa, American Express, or Discover. You will receive an automatic email response when your order is successfully submitted. Orders typically ship within 1 to 3 business days.

Tax. We must add sales tax for books shipped to Utah and Illinois addresses. For books shipped to Canadian addresses we must add GST, but your order will be shipped from within Canada, and you will not be charged Canada Post's border handling fee.

Shipping and handling charges. For books shipped to an address inside USA, a shipping charge of $5.00 for the first book and $1.00 for each additional book will be added. For orders outside USA, the shipping charge is $6.00 for the first book and $1.00 for each additional book. Overseas shipping is by surface mail unless air is specifically requested. The exact cost of air delivery will be added to the order total. Please allow at least six weeks for overseas surface delivery.

Not yet available titles. If you have ordered any not yet published titles (or if a book happens to be out of stock), those books will be placed on backorder and shipped when available. We do not charge your credit card until we ship the books. If you have ordered multiple books and some are not yet available, we will ship the available books now and the remainder when available, at the same shipping charges that would apply if all were currently available.

Returns. If you are not completely satisfied with any book you buy from us, you may return it within ten days for a credit to your charge card.
