From: Verna Desatoff Subject: Re: About that book I want Hey ya Luke: Here is what I found out. The book is available for purchase at just about any bookstore that will do special orders. My suggestion is either Borders or Barnes and Noble. They give 20% discount on all hard back books!!!!! The cost is $36.50 and will have to be ordered from the publisher Cornell University Press which means a min of 4 wks but more like 8-12 wks. 8 wks is pretty realistic. Current books in print shows it still in print. The last edition of Books in Print came out sometime between Sept and Dec. So this info is very current!!!! >I got this information from the Library of Congress Web site.
