A new Borders bookshop has opened in Watford. They have the best array of trading books I have come across (apart from Amazon of course). So if you want to browse your trading books before you pay £50 I think it is a great place to go.
Looks like Borders is a good place. I don't know how many branches they have, but I've just got back from their store at Fosse Park, Leicester (at M1 & M69 junction) and was amazed. Best selection of Trader books I've ever seen in any shop. Waterstones is hopeless.
I've always found the best selection of books online to be at www.global-investor.com, and they're often much cheaper than anywhere else too.
As a favour to Sharky, if anyone is going to buy a book from Global Investor (or indeed Amazon) can you please click on the link from the home page of T2W? The tiny commission which this generates goes towards the running costs of the site (hosting, etc). Thanks!
Clearly for browsing only (as you pay full price) the best place I've found is just by Liverpool Street Station in London. Can't for the life of me remember what its called but its at the junction of London Wall and Bishopsgate for anyone wanting to browse.
In that case, I can only suggest that you add the book to your "list of wants" on abe.com in the hope that a copy of the book will turn up in the fullness of time.
Alternatively, you could try the STA's lending library as they may well have a copy or copies of their own, although these will be reserved for lending to members - but, then I'm sure you know someone who belongs to the society?
Otherwise, the only other alternative that I can think of is for you to put a request to borrow a copy from someone who has a copy and who uses the forum on the Indexia site. I'm sure that there must be at least one person there who has a copy
