    I wouldn`t get too excited there, he signed nearly every copy he sold.

    indeed, the guy who wrote the book is one of the best conmen in the business. I have three 'signed' copies ( gifts at the time). I also have the original 'reference' copy of the book used by the author to show case his accomplishment. It is marked " reference book, not for sale" by the author. I'll sell it for $25 . JR

    JR, some people speak highly of this book and it retails for ridiculous prices. I'm not familiar with it so don't have an opinion. What do you think of the actual book (not the author)?

    No, you're not the seller but just happened to have signed up to several koi chat boards with your very first post on each pimping the book. What a remarkable coincidence. So the book is a 'bargain' but your shipping cost is so outrageous and probably violates ebay's circumvention of fees rule. Thirty five pounds ($56ish) to mail the book? You sir are a class act.

    Thanks for outing this. It still doesn't answer my question as to whether this book is worth reading (ignoring the ludicrous prices)?

    The book is certainly worth reading and at the time of publishing was the best book. I still loan it out to people contemplating keeping koi.
