Is the publisher planning to translate it for us yanks? You wouldn't want to confuse us with all of your misspelling of "Colour" [sic] and cryptic terms like "torch" or off-the-wall phrases like "Bob's your uncle...." and I hope you don't even start discussing "rubbers" etc. :lol:

No seriously....get on with it. :lol: I'd order it today from Amazon.com but I don't see them taking pre-orders yet.

I just received my copy from Amazon UK.

Congrats Alex,
What a great book.

I showed it to my parents last night.
They finally understand why I love to dive.
They are also going to try snorkeling on their next trip to Hawaii.

This book really helps to bridge that gap between divers and the general public.
Congrats again.

I just received my copy from Amazon UK...

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


I was going to wait until it went on sale somewhere here in the States, but thought I'd try Amazon UK as well. There didn't seem to be any problems -- just extra postage (I think shipping was around 7lbs sterling, which converts to what in American - about 3.2 kilos? :D ).

So apparently it's really not that tough to get a copy in the U.S after all... :unsure:

I arrived home from work today only to find Alex's book - which got all the way to Seattle from the U.K. (via Amazon UK) in only 8 days! I've been pouring over it for the past hour, and I agree with what everyone else has said. It's a beautiful book - you should be very proud, Alex! Assuming it is readily available in the U.S. by Christmas, I know what Santa will be bringing my best dive buddies... :D
