Thank you. Once again the book I ordered was thoughtfully packed except this time it was a hardcover book and was sent in a box. The book was in great condition for a twenty-year-old edition. I would love to see more books on this subject and by this author. Seller shipped within 24 hours so I had my book in a few days.
