If your bookstore doesn't know how to order it, tell them the ISBN number is 0-929408-29-2, and give them the phone number for the publisher, 866-764-2925 (within the US) or 623-556-2925 voice, 623-556-2926 fax. Note: the publisher gave the 4th ed the same ISBN as the 3rd edition, but since the publisher is out of stock on the 3rd ed., you are certain to get the 4th ed.
