The most common option for individual or gift-giving purchasesIndividual orders for the paperback or eBook can be placed directly through the following link(s), or Random House Publishing will ship directly to your favorite local bookstore if it isn’t currently on their shelf (ask your bookseller about this option).  Full price is $20, and we’ve seen discounts near $15.  eBook prices are more standard from site to site at   ~$12-$15.  Make sure that you’re getting the Revised Edition (indicated by the red seal) —  also called 2nd edition –especially if you are shopping for a used book or looking in your local library. A few links for you, in no particular preference:
