Edit: Amazon has dropped the ball on this one. After filling SOME orders, they started sending packages of elastic instead of the book. And now, it's no longer available.

I thought people might be interested in this book. It's got good reviews (both here and at Amazon) and it's only $2.15 new.

They sent some drawstring elastic instead. When I went on Amazon, there was a message that there was a problem with the item. Customer Service is issuing a refund.

Guess it really was too good to be true.

Oh, wow... I don't know what's up. I got my copy of the book at the advertised price. Sorry it didn't work out.

Item Under Review

While this item is available from other marketplace sellers on this page, it is not currently offered by Amazon.com because customers have told us there may be something wrong with our inventory of the item, the way we are shipping it, or the way it's described here. (Thanks for the tip!)

We're working to fix the problem as quickly as possible.



why would someone alert them to the price being low???

I doubt they were alerted by anything other than a large number of sales for a book that isn't usually a hot seller.
