Thank you for your help.
Unfortunately, I found too many difficulties with
Amazon.com, with my Visa card, with my bank and
with PayPal, simply because I moved recently from
my country (Portugal) to Brazil. This is a shame
on the so-called "Communications Era".
I gave up my intention to buy the book, until more
clever and favourable conditions become.
Anyway, I am very pleased with the attention and
friendly good will received from members of the list.
