Export version so poor Indians can afford it. It'll be good, if perhaps printed on cheaper paper.

How'd you find it?

I saw that little pink slip (Registered mail delivery attempt) when I got home last night and I'm thinkin' "who on earth is sending me a registered letter?" (thinking that good news rarely arrives by registered mail) - pleasantly surprised when I saw it was the book from India!

(corners are dinged up a bit and the printing quality isn't top shelf, but heck, for 94% off, who can complain?)

(I'm startin to wonder between books & prescriptions & all what else we pay a whole bunch more for in this country...

I know a guy that bought a school text book from the web that came from India.

It was the same exact book, but it was for non-USA use. The thing showed up with a letter saying why it was legal for them to sell it to him, and the thing arrived wrapped in a cloth satchel.

It was dirt cheap compared to the price for the same book in the States.

Recent reports from India show that over 70% of "medicines" are counterfeit and not worth shit.
Take your chances.

Hey, for an Engineer, some technical books ARE like the kamasutra...
