    Hi everyone.

    I have tried to purchase the book from here http://pacificpressnewyork.com/Merchant ... _Code=PPNY

    I am in the UK and online ordering does not accept Visa card details, I am unable to fax an order across and the email address on the website for them does not work.

    Has anyone got any idea of how I can get this ordered?

    Also I would like to donate to Ray but as Im in the UK I don't know how to do it. I want to get money to him directly rather than do it through facebook pages etc How could I go about this?

    Thanks

    Thanks Charlie,

    Unfortunately shipping to the UK for the book does not seem to be allowed. Goodness knows why!

    Will take a look at the donation page.

    Im assuming Ray has a bank account so if I were to send something like travellers cheques from the UK to USA would that work? A standard cheque from he UK or money order would not work.

    Any other options other than travellers cheques?

    I have emailed whoever the seller is (Dr Ling himself?) to ask that they allow international delivery. Fingers crossed!

    Thanks itu01001,

    I have been on those sites but unfortunately the price is very expensive. I'm not keen on spending $60 on a book when there is a chance I could get it for $20. Don't get the wrong, the book is probably worth $60 thanks to its content but the discrepancy is massive - Also the book is second hand.

    The search continues!

    I would be extremely prudent in entering my credit card details in such site.
    It's extremely poorly designed and doesn't display any adress.

    There's many bogus sites selling rare or out of print books for a bargain that are just waiting for unsuspecting clients so they can steal their credit details.
