I wanted to participate, but my $ situation is so tight it is not funny. The cheapest I can find this book is for $30.00 or somthing silly like that...then there is shipping. I just cannot do it.If it becomes more available, and my funds rebound, I will pick it up and add my thoughts.Mr. P. The one thing of which I am positive is that there is much of which to be negative - Mr. P.I came to get down, I came to get down. So get out ya seat and jump around - House of PainHEY!

NickI have emailed Dr. Grayling asking him if he could help us with securing some additional copies of his book. I see that the lowest priced used book is about $38 now. Wow! Those sellers must know about our book discussion and are being opportunists.Oh, and I also asked him to join us for a chat session. I'll keep you posted on his response.Chris "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." - Nelson Mandella

I really want to participate, but don't know if I can justify the cost ($25 in my local bookshop). It's available at my university library, but is currently out, and so I'm in line (and even if I get it, I might only have it for a week if someone else puts a hold on it). Just as a side note - it's available at the UK amazon site for 3.99 pounds (about $7 USD). The shipping costs might still make it feasible for people in the US to purchase it that way (not sure what the shipping cost is, though).Nicole

Thanks Nicole!I have made a post on our Home page regarding ordering the book through Amazon.co.uk for those interested in this option.Here is a copy of the message...If you are struggling to get a copy of our current book selection, What is Good?, by A.C. Grayling, there is a solution. You can order the book through Amazon.co.uk for a fraction of the cost of ordering through the US division. Amazon.com currently offers the book used for $38.94, while Amazon.co.uk offers it at only $7.05 USD. (3.99 GBP). I'll change the link on the Current Book section above to direct to the UK site.Chris "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." - Nelson MandellaEdited by: Chris OConnor  at: 9/5/04 8:16 pm

By the way, Dr. Grayling has accepted our invitation to a chat session in early November. I'll be announcing this in more detail shortly.Chris "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." - Nelson Mandella
