Yeah, it's not as expensive as I'd hoped, but Peter has made a fair enough attempt and I have to admit I'm going to have to wait for payday to get this, so I'm in.

And now we hear from the great man himself:
Quote
Dear All,
 The GBU-book is now available at "Amazon.de" and is shipped/distributed worldwide. We will endeavor to list the book at other Amazon marketplaces, such as Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.es etc, but, in all cases, the book will be shipped from an Amazon distribution center in Leipzig, Germany.

 Please do not hesitate to write directly to me if you have problems navigating the Amazon.de site, e.g. you could send me screenshots etc.

 The link is: http://www.amazon.de/Behind---scenes-Sergio-Leones-Good/dp/3000404767/

 Best wishes,
 Peter

But at the moment it is not directly Amazon.de which sells the book, instead only over Amazon Marketplace, and the name of the seller indicates that it is Hanley himself from whom you get it (but shipped by Amazon)

The book was printed and bound in Germany, and so it made sense to send the books to Amazon in Germany (Amazon.de). When you send books to an Amazon logistics center (distribution center), "they" (Amazon) decide where they will be sent to (Bad Hersfeld, Pforzheim, Brieselang, Werne, Weinberg, Rheineberg, Leipzig etc), and it turned out to be Leipzig. The delivery was a little complicated since everything is done online. You just can't ring them up and organize things like in the old days. The book is listed at Amazon.de and available for worldwide delivery. It should, in principle, be straightforward to link the German Amazon market (Amazon.de) to the other Amazon markets (.com, .co.uk, .es, .fr etc), which are independent of each other, but I have had much difficulty trying to do this. It would be more comfortable, in the USA for example, to search for the book with Amazon.com and order it (although it is shipped from Germany). Also, people are more likely to find English-language books when they are listed at English-based sites, such as Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk.

I (Peter Hanley) am the seller, but the book is stored at Amazon, and Amazon also does the electronic paperwork, packing/shipping etc. I have tried to "register" the ASIN (Amazon standard identification number) corresponding to the book at other sites (Amazon.com etc) so that the book can be listed at these other sites, but I have ended up going in circles. At least, Amazon.de seems to be functioning as a distribution center for now, but things could certainly be better.

Amazon.
Even as an "Advantage Seller" I have my problems with them, I feel with you...

Anyway guys, just buy the thing Smiley. You can manage.
This book is a dream come true, even beyond that... Need to catch a train tomorrow,
but I can't stop reading Smiley.

I guess that if there is no way to get it  other than by going to the German site, I'll do that.  But if it will be available sometime soon on Amazon.com, I'll just wait for that. What do you say Peter?

Or is there any way we can buy it from you directly (e.g by sending you a Paypal payment) and not have to deal with the German site? If yes, can you tell us your Paypal email address and how many dollars to pay? Thanks  Afro

You can use the amazon.de site in english language (there's a option you click on the home page):

http://www.amazon.de/gp/switch-language/homepage.html/ref=cs_switchlang/277-8732175-9162913?ie=UTF8&language=en_GB

Here's the link to his book with the english option checked:

Thanks for that, Jordan Krug.  Afro


I placed the order.

The book was 64,95 euros (they use commas, whereas we'd use periods, to denote "cents" or "fractions of a euro.") "Delivery and handling" charge is 10,80 euros.

I'm not saying that 10,80 euros is an unfair shipping price from Leipzeig to New York, but on the book's page where the price is listed it very clearly says Free Delivery. By the time the book was in my shopping cart and I was checking out, it had a 10,80 "delivery and handling" fee. If the "Free Delivery" was only meant within Germany or within EU or whatever, it should say upfront "Free Delivery in Germany" or "Free Delivery in EU."


Total was 75,75 euros; at the current exchange rate, my Visa card was charged $89.57. Book is supposed to arrive on May 31st.

This is, by far and away, the most I've ever paid for a book. (Not that I have many coffee-table books!)

Looking forward to receiving it!

Yes, no shipping costs for books in Germany, but outside Germany it is different.

And it is still quite cheap. The (lovely) thing weights 5 pounds.
DHL would charge about $42.00!
In any case, it is THE coffee table book a serious Leone fan needs Smiley.
