Hi Eric,

You might want to check out Abebooks.com. I love this website! It's
the central website for lots of bookstores from all over the world. The
book you reference at Amazon.com comes up in 12 places for under
$30.00. The cheapest is $23.00. (It is important to read the
bookseller's description carefully).
