I would like to add that the reprinting of this great book is in no small part due to our own drewish. Thanks a ton for your effort on this.

I'm not currently, I forgot to include the check with the renewal. Then NABS nailed me for 35 bucks because its 200 fricking dollars to be a student non meber (300 if your not) to present at their conference. So the membership would with my discount would bring me right back up to the nonmeber price. How funny. And I've gotta wait 4 weeks until my SDAFS registration is reimbursed.

AFS got enough interest to warrant a reprint. Thanks to all that have asked AFS to do this. And thanks to AFS.

This book is worth every penny. I don't have to drive to the library anymore to read it.

I'm sure the $150-800 used copies generated some interest in funds they are missing out on too. Finally I might be able to stop buying books! Either way I'm glad its back. The library here was about to have a copy dissappear and the lost book fine payed.

Holy moly! Sounds like a good book to have, but $77 is pretty steep when you're on a tight budget, not to mention $110. How much is it to join AFS? Anybody willing to buy me one for $77 if given the $$$?

You got my $110.00 without much hesitation.
