Did you buy the Hardcover or the paperback version? I run into this kind of thing all the time when getting books like these, you are not alone, friend. You either get the more expensive US version, or the reprint knockoff international version that Amazon will sell you for $800 but every other seller for less than $60.

I just checked, because I ordered it last year, and Amazon does sell the Hardcover for $149.32 (+ taxes) [Link]. It should have the access code intact, and not be too banged up. At least, mine did.

Unless they did not have them when you bought it and only just stocked it.

And to answer your question about honest sellers, yes, there are some still hanging around.
Recently bought from (within last two years) for programming related books:
1. Amazon Services, Inc. (Ironic, I know. But I have not been totally disappointed)
2. Thriftbooks |
3. Heritage Books |- Used books mostly (all, probably). Less likely to carry programming books
4. Jensen Books Inc |

I have not gotten anything I did not intend to receive from these sellers.
