What to do if you're Amazon accnt is not US:

** On the Amazon page click ‘Your Account’ [top right]

** Scroll down to the ‘Settings’ section & click on ’1-Click Settings’ & you’ll be taken to the ‘Manage Addresses and 1-Click Settings’ page [you may be asked to give your name/password to get to here, but that's OK ~ do as you're asked]

** Find yourself a US address & phone number by googling say a shoe shop & use their details [but change the unit number & phone number slightly]

** Change your address details & you will be redirected to Amazon.com

** In the Amazon search boxes at the top select ‘Kindle Store’ to the left & put “The Logic of Chance” in the right box & click ‘Go’

** Select the correct result. Check that the page reads “Kindle Price: $0.00 includes free wireless delivery via Amazon Whispernet. You Save: $69.99 (100%)”

** There’s a yellow ‘Buy now with 1-Click’ button to the top right. Underneath is a drop down menu. Select ‘Transfer via computer’ from the drop down & click the yellow button

** You’ll go to a download page & a dialog box pops up ~ select ‘Save File’ & ‘OK’ & the file is downloaded to your computer

** transfer to your Kindle via USB [or read on your PC with the free Kindle app for PC]

Have you tried this from a computer outside the US? I ask because its possible to tell that an IP address is coming from outside the US despite what you might enter for your snail mail address. Also, I downloaded this book but I'm not that sure its worth the trouble. Note that the summary says: "...The book examines a broad range of topics in evolutionary biology including the inadequacy of natural selection and adaptation as the only or even the main mode of evolution;..." also, the title of the Preface is "Toward a Postmodern Synthesis of Evolutionary Biology"

This smells very wu to me. But I haven't had a chance to actually read it yet so I could be wrong.
