johns books

I ordered johns first book form amazon.co.uk two weeks ago because they didn’t have his new book.
Today they sent me an email telling me that there is a delay on the book of one to two weeks.
I see that amazon.com (America) has his new book and will ship it in 1 day.
It will take between one and two weeks to get here from America.
Im in Ireland!
Im new to tiling I have done small bits (kitchen floor/bathroom walls/floors/on suits)
So i sort of know the basics how to square/level/plumb ECT.
My question is should i cancel the order with amazon.co.uk for johns first book and order johns new book from amazon.com
Which is the better book
I very interested in learning the grid layout method!

This is truly a dilemma. Don't know what to tell you. Apparently, Amazon UK is ordering the book from Amazon US. I think you should stick with that. The first book is very good on the grid layout, as is the new one. The new book, however, will cost you double the price of the old one by the time we figure out how to ship it to Ireland. It costs over $5 to airmail the book across the line to Canada (which we do all the time). No tellin' what they'll charge to get it across the pond.

I think I'd stand pat on the deal.

honestly,you should get both!!
The first one covers mudwork quite well
The second covers alot of the newer products and some advanced material is included.
I use them for training manuals!!
