I wouldn't. It comes from China
So either they somehow got the book leaked and sell it now or it's a nap.

As far as I know, everything on Alibaba is a scam. I've tried to buy multiple things over the years and nothing ever shows up. I eventually get a refund, but it's all just a waste of time.

No Pete, they have very powerful B2B sections. I just placed and received an order for floppy cables which were built especially for us.

I think it depends on what you are looking for. If it's too good to be true... it's scam.

@dennya Howdy! I believe 2015 will be the year for the Amiga book. It will happen!

Yes!

Just discovered that Brian Bagnall will use Kickstarter to release the most awaited book (almost for me) Commodore: The Amiga Years.


The campaign will start on 15 Jun 2015 as announced on Facebook

With his track record (what comes to this particular book), I don't think it's an automatic pledge from me..
