Default Gambit book: How to use Computers for chess

Hi Christian,

quick question: Why is the book so expensive in Europe ?

I'm interested to buy it but the official price in Europe is EURO
23.45 which is about $26.30 ! (calculated with the current exchange
rate 1 EURO = $1.12)
Price at amazon.com is $16,07.
To be honest: I won't pay $26.30 for a book which I could get 40%
cheaper in the US ... for $16 I would buy it immediately but
unfortunately amazon charges $10 ! for international shipping, so I
hope to get your book for a reasonable price in Europe ...

Is there a good reason for these huge price differences ?

thx
Leo

Default Prices+review of the book

Hi Leo,
This must be a tax issue. I am no expert in this, so unfortunately I cannot
give you a satisfying answer. $16 sounds very cheap to me. I don't think you
can buy chess books anywhere in Europe at this price. The Publishers, Gambit
Publications, may be able to give you a better answer on this one.

By the way, a review has appeared on http://www.iecg.info

Thx for letting me know about this

Hello Christian,
Your book sounds interesting, but I haven't seen it in any book stores in
the neighborhood yet. Is it possible you can send me a synops of it and
possible a list of the chapters, or is there a place on the internet I might
beable to review it.
Thank you,
Leopold
