Jimmy Cornell's Books from A&C Black

I had a very bad experience dealing with A&C Black from England. (A) The book I ordered was not the book that was delivered. (B) They charged UPS Expidited Service from England to Oregon, 40 British Pounds. (C) Never responded to any correspondence that has been sent to them. A&C Black is the website you will be directed to from Noonsite if you are looking to purchase any of Jimmy's books. I was trying to purchase "WORLD CRUSING HANDBOOK," like I say by the time they sent the wrong book and shipping cost my credit card was charged $159.57. BEWARE

Jimmy Cornell's Book PURCHASE MESS UP!

Thank you, when you mention "6th Edition," I assume you're talking about "WORLD CRUISING ROUTES" cuz that's the only book by JC that has that many editions. WORLD CRUISING HANDBOOK is at 3rd Edition, Published in 2001. Which is the book I'm trying to get. Maybe that's what happened with A&C Black. Again, thank you for your reply. Funny thing though, not a word from A&C yet. Not a word. Verrrrry Strange. I've been directed to another supplier by, guess who, NOONSITE.COM, Jimmy Cornell's former website. From what I understand he's still active with it.
