How To Order Using Our "Shopping Cart"

You can order books and other items from this Web site by using our “Shopping Cart” system. It works like a grocery store shopping cart, and all information about your credit card is fully encrypted for maximum security.

Add to Cart
Click this button to add the item to your Shopping Cart. This is like taking an item off the shelf in an actual store and putting it in a shopping cart. However, you have no obligation to buy the item. You can later “remove” this item from your Shopping Cart if you decide not to buy it.
Click this button any time you wish to view the contents of your Shopping Cart. You can increase or decrease the quantity ordered of any item, or you can remove any items from the Shopping Cart.
When you’ve finished shopping, click this button. You will see a list of all the items in your Shopping Cart along with the total amount of your purchase. You can change the quantity ordered of each item, delete items from your Shopping Cart, or exit and continue shopping. When you’re ready to pay, you will be presented with a Payment Options screen. Here you will choose your preferred method of payment, fill in the spaces for shipping and credit card information, and select your preferred method of shipping. That’s all there is to it!

When you’re asked to enter your credit card information, you will see a “security lock” symbol appear at the bottom of your Web browser. This symbol indicates that your credit card data is being encrypted and transferred to our secure servers. You’ll receive an e-mail confirming that your order was received and is being processed.

If you prefer, you can order by phone by calling 1-800-927-8733 toll-free in the United States (call 510-632-1366 outside the United States).

You can fax your order to 510-568-6040 or mail your order to:
