Finally: Almost World-Wide Free Shipping

The English edition of “SQL Performance Explained” is finally available. It has its own website where you can find a PDF preview and order information. The cover price is EUR 29.95 or GBP 26.99.

If you order it from outside the EU, you must also consider that you might be required to pay import duties in the destination country.

Knowing that I have readers all over the world, I’ve spent a fair amount of time to make world-wide free shipping possible. I almost succeeded. If you use the direct order form I’ll be able to offer free shipping to 150+ countries. However, this is only possible when using a volume discount offered by the Austrian postal service. Therefore, I’ll dispatch international orders only once a week.

SQL Performance Explained

Fine print: There are some countries that do not accept dutiable letter post. These are: Afghanistan, Albania, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Belarus, Benin, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Chile, Colombia, Côte d’Ivoire (Rep.), Cuba, Dem. People’s Rep. of Korea, Djibouti, El Salvador, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Mali, Mauritania, Moldova, Nepal, Peru, Russian Federation, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, Uzbekistan and Venezuela (see Article X on page 79 of the Universal Postal Convention).

If you live in one of those countries, please feel free to use the direct order form anyway. There is no obligation in filling in the form. If I know that you live in one of these countries and would like to get the print edition, I can check how I could send it to you anyway.
