Maelo,You'll have to speak to publisher about commission, they make all the money, not the author. (Although I suspect they spend a lot of it on drink!)P

I have the Introduction book, there a form you can fill out that will get you 30% off the full version, but it doesn't say how much it is.I think it says that the full version is a 2 volume set in a cloth hanky, so it could be a bit old, has the offer expired?
