If this is the one by Hamish Barber I hope you have better luck than me. I've been trying to buy it for about 18 months through Amazon and all the other book companies. No one can get hold of a copy. I've odered it 4 or 5 times and they all come back and say we'll keep trying. My last try took about 4 months. Somebody out there must know where there is a copy or two in a local bookshop. I'm in Australia ,or I would have been personally scouring all the shops in Scotland by now.

Is it not a self-published effort? But tried Mclaren Books Helensburgh? He maybe able to help.
