QuestionAre there any honest booksellers left? Pin

I am trying to get a NEW version of Kip Irvine's book: "Assembly Language for X86 Processors Seventh Edition".

Should be simple - right?

I ordered it from Amazon. Those sunshines do not sell it themselves, but they sell through third party bookstores. Ordered a copy, but the store sent me a contraband version that is only to be sold in India! The paper quality is poor, and although new the book arrived dirty and not in the best of shape. I can live with all that, BUT: the access code that you need to register your purchase so you can get access to its website and download codes, does not work in the USA! The kind seller will only let you return it if you cover the return shipping cost, which is about the price of the book. Amazon is of no help, but I plan to register a serious complaint about the seller. Not that Amazon would care! Sigh | :sigh:

I have researched a number of other sellers. Most have lousy ratings: For selling contraband Indian product. The vast majority are selling second hand books - which means the access code has been used and is no longer valid. I found one source selling a new version of the sixth (previous) version for $160 OMG | :OMG:

Does anyone know where I can get a new legitimate copy of the seventh edition at a reasonable price?

Thanks!
