Hi, I am new on this forum and was motivated to come here to just let the permaculture world know that Rainwater Harvesting Vols 1 & 2 by Brad Lancaster are available at www.bookdepository.com at prices that are much better than that advertised on the PRI Australia web site. I actually attempted to advise readers that they were available as well as vol 3 which can now be ordered. My posts to the PRI Australia page were totally moderated out of existence. I once assumed that they were operating in the interests of all permies but it seems that they are operating from a very base and unethical profit motive. Nothing wrong with the profit motive but when you are trying to convince someone to purchase a book on a public web site then you should take comment if that book is available elsewhere.
Cheers Sergi

Maybe the issue PRI had was not competition, but rather you, as a newbie on the board posting what amounts to an advertisement in your first 1 or 2 posts, as you have done here? On many boards, that is considered blatant spamming, and is frowned upon.

The post does read a bit like spam, which is probably what caused the problems over at PRI. But the information is genuine, and useful.

The Book Depostiory is actually my favourite supplier of new books, and their prices include worldwide postage/shipping. The PRI is sending stuff out from Australia and shipping charges change according to destination.

For me, Volume one would cost approximately three times more if I ordered it from PRI than from the book depository.

Or,

You could follow Paul's book link to Amazon.com and get them for about the same price. From here in the US with free shipping, and Paul would get a kickback so he can continue to provide this wonderful forum. Just one other option.

They are in the related items at the bottom of the page.

No spamming intended, only an effort to pass information on to all and sundry in the permaculture world. I do not like people paying for things that are priced at levels that are excessive. Given that Paul will recieve some benefit by heading to Amazon then I would highly recommend this
