The price includes shipping within the US. Please add $10 for international shipping. The book will be mailed to your mailing address in the form of a DVD. You will be emailed a link to download as well. The book is in the form of a Web site contained on the disc, and is designed to be viewed in a web browser; it will not work in a standalone DVD player. It has been tested and found to work in Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, and Chrome, in both Windows and Mac OS X (except Internet Explorer, which is Windows-only). Earlier versions of most of these should also work fine, with the notable exception of Internet Explorer. If you have an older version of Explorer, or if you experience any display problems when viewing the book, please consider upgrading or trying a different browser.

From time to time, the book will be updated and expanded as the collection grows. At the end of your checkout, select the "promotional emails" option if you would like to be notifed of future versions of the book. Upgrading to a newer edition will only cost $6 to cover shipping and the actual DVD production cost.
