They'll pass over the money without even thinking about it; for it is money they have and peace they lack.

Then I found this website, a great list of how to talk to a human being at a huge list of companies. Bookmark this thing, it is invaluable.
I think I got Amazon straight. The nice lady in India that I spoke to said that they were going to stop selling this book until they got it straight, that I should check back in 10 days and if it was back on the website it would be safe to order. Meanwhile, I will get a refund but will have to visit the post office once again.

A press conference will be held at 1:30 p.m. today at Chase Field.
After the Diamondbacks offered a deal in the range of three years and $22.5 million, the sides announced they had broken off talks on July 19 while the club was in Milwaukee.
But the Diamondbacks reengaged talks sometime during last week’s series against Atlanta, and the sides quickly came to an agreement on a contract that will run through 2010.
The outfielder is in the midst of a career year, hitting .303 with 17 home runs and 28 stolen bases.
The extension almost certainly means outfielder Carlos Quentin’s days in Arizona are numbered. The club was shopping Quentin prior to the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline.
