I chose express shipping on Sunday night. The site says the book will ship within 24 hours. Didn't ship until Wed via UPS 3-day. With the weekend, it will be 8 days total. Totally unsatisfactory for Express Shipping! I'm sure the book is great. But use a different vendor if you want the book in less than a week!!
