Hi all

Neat stuff to be seen at the LW section of Amazon.co.jp. At least the covers are great.

Here is a link as well (I wonder if the contents i.e. tutorials, live up to the cover images?):

Here's one of the covers (if I get the attachment thing right). Might be for a Japanese CD magazine.

Heck! Here is a link to it. Can't seem to figure out how to post an image:

My relatives gave me one of these books for Christmas. (They live in Tokyo) The best part is that all the pictures are in color!!!

The covers look great. My browser really doesn't show the amazon pages well, they are unreadable. What is the $US price of these books?

Jessica,

1. Which of those books was it?
2. Are the tutorials usable and different from what we have available here?

Apparently, according to this:

http://www.bloomberg.com/markets/currency/currcalc.html

it's about $8.54 to 1000 Yen. Meaning those books run approximately $26-28 each. Shipping will be of course more expensive i.e. not free, as here in the US.

You can get to the Amazon Japan pages from any US Amazon page, which shows a store directory at the bottom. On the upper right corner of the Japanese pages there is an English translation for the ordering process available.
