The Myth of ‘Free Shipping’

There is no such thing as ‘free shipping.’ It costs me about $3.50 to ship a single book. If I give you ‘free shipping’ I essentially make no profit. So please consider the $2 I charge for domestic shipping as splitting the difference with me.

Amazon can buy the books from my publisher more cheaply than I can and guidebook authors make almost no money on Amazon sales. Please buy from your local retailer or from me.
