Double check where this book is coming from before ordering the book. I order it and paid extra for 2-3 day shipping. After a week, I will not get it for nearly another three weeks because it was coming come an International site. If that is true, then why offer 2-3 day shipping? Barnes and Noble, should be ashamed with themselves about this. After all, Noble is in their name, and it surely is anything but noble for my situation. Solid 0-stars on this experience.
