Everyone receives tracking numbers by e-mail and an immediate receipt, but it can take several days for tracking numbers to be generated, with the exception of orders for hard cover books, which usually take about a week for their tracking numbers to be generated. Therefore, books sometimes arrive before their tracking numbers do.
We ship to APO and FPO addresses.

This item ships directly from one of our printing companies. It is usually sent via U.P.S. Arrival is typically between 4 and 10 days. The hard cover version can take up to 14 days for arrival. Please note that couriers have a history of leaving books in unexpected locations, such as placing them upon shelves within a garage.
Shipping options are available during checkout. Virtually everything is shipped as either a First Class package or a Priority Mail package by the U.S. post office. The estimated delivery time for the delivery method chosen is cited at the time when a customer makes the decision, and the system takes into account our turn-around time. The maximum delivery time is a week.
International Orders (Outside the United States of America)
We declare all packages that are destined for Europe and the U.K. to have a value of under $40, to bypass the unfair E.U. mail tax, and to prevent delays. Orders for locations that are outside of the United States are initially sent via the U.S. Postal Service, and are later passed onto the appropriate, local couriers. Because of the many variances that are involved in international deliveries, it is impossible to accurately predict the delivery date of an international shipment. First Class packages typically take 3 weeks to arrive, whereas Priority Mail International delivery times are faster. Priority Mail delivery times vary depending upon destination, so delivery estimates are provided during checkout, based upon the destination country.
On occasion, packages are held for inspection by customs officers of the destination country. This typically results in a delay of delivery. Packages normally arrive in good condition, even when there is intervention by customs. However, there are very rare cases in which customs officers do not release the package, and either hold onto it indefinitely or discard it. We cannot be held responsible for the loss in these cases. In these exceedingly rare cases, the customer must accept the loss, as we exerted due diligence and expense in attempting to have the package delivered. We would like to reiterate that these cases are very rare, but customers ordering internationally should be made aware of the risk.
