    Please post the link to get that pricing. Also is there any shipping? Our $180 price includes shipping.

    2) Fact remains Amazon and Barnes & Noble aren't shipping "releasing" them until April.

    We've had them in hand for shipment for over 3 weeks, Amazon/Barnes won't until April, why are you attacking us that you can order them since November? Available to order and having them released to ship is not the same thing. These books haven't been available in hand for much longer than a month now.

    Why all the negativity?

    Sir,
    No negativity here.
    Amazon and Barnes & Noble don't have a monopoly, they don't own the complete (world) market.
    Numerous bookshops in Europe have had this book in their listings, catalogs, since several months, many before 2021.
    Already, several of these copies have been sold on various sale websites such as catawiki, Ebay, 2nd hand... You can look this up easily.
    Fine that by your gesture, Fchat members get access to this book.

    And I really don't have a "special" account at FerrariStore, by the way. And shipping is included.

    Sir, to be 100% clear: I did NOT enter a promotional code. I wouldn't mention the price difference if it was due to a promotional discount.
    This is the price I get when I order from Ferraristore, whether it's in EU or the US.

    You appear to be getting a discount that I can't get at the Ferrari Store. Whether that's because the discount is applied to your account or whether your IP address (currently Europe) receives a discount when accessing either the US or European Ferrari Store, I don't know.

    From what I can see, if I was to order it right now, FerrariChat is the best priced option for me here in the United States. Next best option is the Ferrari Store at $191 + tax.

    All the best,
    Andrew.

    Tip: select gift wrap/message card and (somehow) pay negligible tax.

    The discount is apparently a policy applied to european customers accounts (I get the same 20% off in France); the fact that it's possible to log to the US version of ferraristore with a european customer account keeping that advantage does probably not imply that a US customer account would get the same...

    i live in the boondocks. paved roads are a rarity here.

    who is PAYPAL? can AMEX or MASTERCARD be substituted?

    i bought my gabriella (328) with gold coin. doesn't that mean anything today?

    barnes and nobel are lightyears from me. besides, they're a communist opium den.

    suggestions?

    1) I am a bit amazed that Ferrari enthusiasts are so concerned about a Twenty Dollar bill or two.
    2) Just received my books via Rob’s work and UPS, and they are a very good looking set. Well done: quality paper, binding, covers, and case. One or two F-car pictures w podium and Ferrari results from each and every GP.
    3) Had hoped only for a bit more poetry, specs, write-up, etc.
    Still, impressive.
    Thanks Rob

    OMG...File this under “No good deed goes unpunished”

    Buy the book, don’t buy the book. But please stop with the whiny debate of whether this is the best deal on the planet.

    Rob - thanks for your (unappreciated by some) efforts to provide this purchase opportunity to this forum.
