Wow. They seem quite serious about that.
Which book is this?
Hi Stefan – I think it’s this one: http://www.wiley-vch.de/publish/en/books/forthcomingTitles/EE00/0-470-23455-5/?sID=is2h388purqbk7u3713aj8eae2
Funnily enough, I’ve got a few seriously old books — from the 1920’s — that have a similar notice on them, for sale only in Europe. Which only goes to show that restrictions are nothing new — it’s just that publishers used to be less able to implement them.
As an American, I feel all excluded. I demand my copy of Basic Engineering Circuit Analysis, 9th ed.
What’s that? I can get it here for only $196?
As a cash-strapped American, I feel excluded.
Ah shucks! That was on my TBR list, too. 🙂
Milena – wise words indeed. Yes, I suppose those older kinds of restrictions were almost empty threats.
Jonathan – never mind, your circuits will remain shoddy…
TK – It’s all right, the ending was rubbish anyway.
