Hi Elaine,
I bought 2 copies of the wonderful book at, they were used
but in good condition. Too tell the truth I haven't read them yet.
The ISBN from the 2 books is 07153 73986. A good place to trade books
is at or the german version
Check out the fritos bookshelf or others from all over the world.
