Thanks for pointing this out! I've told the publisher, and my guess is
that they'll fix it in a few days.

Clearly the shipping & tax are a lot if you're outside the US. I
couldn't find a European Safari website (apart from ones associated with
libraries and Universities).

On a more positive note I'll be sending the publisher 75% of the book in
a couple of weeks, so by next month that should be available on
Safari... assuming they don't mess up:-)
