Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Eh? This one? £30 from Amazon.co.uk?

... except I paid Danish VAT on it too...

Y'know, I support this whole "paying taxes" thing, but sometimes I wish the ways around paying taxes were a little less obvious and/or a little less legal - I can't quite tell whether it's ethical to pay a tax you can easily and legally get around, or just plain stupid...

But hey, it's worth what I paid for it, so why am I complaining?

That appears to be the original edition, and there's a 2nd edition out, and yes the hardcover is indeed $265. On further investigation, I find the paperback's also available though, at $95.

Hmmm, no used editions. It'll have to wait then. I have lots of other reading lined up.
