RW Press, Newport, RI USA.

I will refer to this as “W&K”.

There are several places from which you can buy the book and the price will be different at each vendor:

1) From RW Press, via Lulu:   $35 plus shipping.

To purchase a copy from RW Press, go here

Lulu is a “Print on Demand” (PoD) distributor. When you order from RW Press, they forward the request to Lulu who print a copy of the book, which usually takes about 2-3 days. The book is shipped to you using the shipping method you select.

2) At bookstores, including Barnes and Noble and Amazon: $50 (plus shipping).

Amazon.com lists the book as “in stock.” However, this is not actually true. If you order from Amazon, they will order a copy from Lulu who will then print it. Amazon will arrange to have the book shipped directly to you from Lulu. Therefore, it is no quicker to order from Amazon.

It is highly recommended that students do not leave the purchase of textbooks to the last minute.
