Price is right there on the site. Scroll down a little bit after the page loads. The whole order section has a darker brown background and says, "Order a Book" at the top of the paragraph. Here's another link just in case:
http://www.baboonspiders.co.za/

Being from South Africa, the price is listed in Rands.
475R for the book (hardcopy) and 230R for international shipping brings the total cost to 705R, or $100.8510. I used a currency converter. Basically, count on it costing you one hundred U.S. dollars. Though, it looks like ordering a soft-copy would cost you around $77. It's cheaper, but I would much rather have a hardback book.

Hope that helps.

Well, this is just my opinion here, but the fee they charge for international shipping on this book seems VERY fair. If you can justify $100 for this book, it is well worth it. But, that's up to you and your finances.

I think what they were saying is just that shipping is costly. But, there really isn't a way around it. It's like tax. Find a nice book at the store, and end up paying an extra couple bucks on taxes. It's not "cool", but feels rather restrictive. Like a wet-blanket. Still, what are you going to do? Pay the fees and move on.
