Ordering The Language of Mathematics, 19th Edition
[This site updated Feb. 1, 2013]
The Language of Mathematics has been used in numerous
editions since 1988 at Montana State University. The text is
self-published because the market is too small (only a few
universities have a course in the language of mathematics). This
course and text have been used at Montana State University,
Idaho State University, Coppin State in Baltimore, Baker
University in Kansas, and the University of Missouri - Kansas
City, as well as by very numerous individuals.
If you order the text, I will send you by e-mail a pdf copy
of the Student's Solutions Manual, gratis. It is 43
crammed small-print pages - enough to really help.
Most people order
the text ($35.95. This is
very inexpensive for a major math text.)
the student solutions manual (free in pdf format),
postage ($4 for slow
book-rate "media-mail" postage in the U.S., for a total of
$39.95 People who have ordered tell me it arrives
in about 5 days to the west and 7-10 days to the east coast. I
ship from Montana.
or $6 for priority mail in the U.S for a total of $41.95.
The Post Office says it takes 3 days to the east coast. For
postage to other countries,
$39.95 (slower media-mail) or $41.95 (faster priority
mail). You may pay with PayPal below.
or money orders payable in U.S. dollars to "Warren Esty." I do not
take credit cards other than through PayPal.
I accept PayPal.
For the usual order (text, media
mail in the US: $35.95+$4 = $39.95) with student
solutions sent to you gratis by e-mail as a pdf file, you may
reach your PayPal account by using the next button for "media mail"
in the US (I ship from Montana):
If you are in Canada, do not use these buttons. Postage
to Canada is discussed here.
Or, for priority mail in the US (text, priority mail:
$35.95+$6 = $41.95), with student
solutions sent to you gratis by e-mail as a pdf file,
use the next button (I ship from Montana):
You may pay by check
and regular mail. If you pay by regular mail be sure your
order is clear about exactly what you ordered (for
example, "LM, priority mail" or "LM, media mail") and your
postal mail address. You must include your e-mail address so I
can send the solutions manual. I have written more than one
book and you must mention "LM" (The
Language of Mathematics) so I know this is the book you
want. Using PayPal gets you the materials very quickly.
Or, you may log into your account at https://www.paypal.com/
by check for shipping abroad (see shipping cost below) must be
in U.S. dollars drawn on a U.S. bank (otherwise there
are large collection charges. Even a US dollar check drawn on
a Canadian bank will not do). I recommend money orders drawn
on a U.S. bank. Even better is
511 Henderson St.
Bozeman, MT 59715
I usually post books within one day of receiving the
check. Enclose your e-mail address and I will let you know
when it is posted and I will send you the solutions
manual in pdf format.
There is also an Instructor's Solutions Manual with
solutions to all problems and an Instructor's Manual, but
they are available only to teachers.
Shipping to other countries. The US Post Office is losing money and just raised their interntional rates a lot. $20 airmail to Canada (There is no media-mail
to Canada. Even airmail is slow -- it seems that Canadian Customs
often holds up books for a week extra). Log into your PayPal
account and add $20 for shipping to Canada, for a total of $55.95.
Be sure your order is clear about exactly what you ordered
(Subject line: "LM, mail to Canada").
$20 airmail to Mexico.
$24 airmail to England, Spain, Germany, Sweden
and other countries in Europe [$59.95 total for text and shipping,
preferably paid by PayPal]
$24 airmail to Israel, Turkey, Japan,
Australia, Oman, Brazil and anywhere else that US Priority Flat
Rate mail goes. E-mail me about postage to other countries.
