Only if you tell us which book that is, so we can buy it as well ;-)

As I am quite often buying books that are hard to come by as well,
I faced the same problem too. Luckily, there are several P.O box
services in the US that are glad to relay any mail from the US to
any place in the world. Some of them are also good for one time
use. I personally use usabox.com. They are probably not the cheapest
but worked well for me.
I must not become metastable.
Metastability is the mind-killer.
Metastability is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my metastability.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the metastability has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
