Overview

The Fashion Handbook is the indispensable guide to the fashion industry.

Sad_Santa More than 1 year ago
I ordered a book on Dec.15,2008 thru Eurobooks for my son for Christmas. He would have loved this book - if he had ever gotten it. They supposedly ship from 30 minutes from where I live. Order status says it shipped same day - so I can't cancel the order. I got orders from 2000 miles away which I ordered a day later. It's been 15 days, no book, and no response to my emails, on Dec 23rd, 27th, or 30th. They have my money. B&N hasn't responded to my emails either, except to say they got them.

B&N finally responded with a flimsy excuse - no help until after January 6, 2009. Maybe I'll get the order in time for my sons birthday in 6 months.
Sorry about the rating - not for the book. ZERO stars for EuroBooks!!!!
