DO NOT order this product from Barnes and Noble. Try Amazon or an alternative provider instead! I pre-ordered this book from B&N in early October to be shipped on the 20th, and after a severe delay and technical problems requiring me to contact customer services, I was finally told it would be shipped on the 12th of November, and that it would arrive in 7-21 business days. By the 21st of December I was concerned and contacted customer services. Despite having taken my money, they told me they considered my order 'lost in transit' though they had not bothered to inform me of this. When I asked for my money back they said it would take one to two billing cycles, i.e. possibly another two calendar months, merely to be back where I started. Completely unacceptable given all the inconvenience I have been through. Avoid this company!
