Hi and welcome to the site :)

I haven't come across the book myself, sorry, but you may find books of interest on amazon, e-bay or online at various large book shops.

I managed to find out the ISBN for you  :)  ISBN: 9780860670827

Perhaps you can order it in your local bookshop now.

I have just googled Abebooks.co.uk,  put in the ISBN No. and they have one second hand copy available.

Hope this helps

I'm sorry - I must need new specs - I only checked the No.  However, I just looked on Amazon.com and putting in the book title, two came up, one new and one used.

Hope you are lucky this time
