Only available to Canada and the United States.... nowhere else.

Houston, we have a problem. I'm off to buy some maple syrup: see if that works!

There are re-shipping companies, you know. But you really, really, want the book (it's expensive).

A couple of notes:
  • Haise's signature on the Smithsonian signed copies are on a bookplate.

  • The Smithsonian offer may not be the only source for signed copies. It is an exclusive for early delivery in connection with an online event being held April 13, when Haise will deliver a brief lecture followed by a conversation with Teasel Muir-Harmony, curator of the National Air and Space Museum's Apollo spacecraft collection.

    Tickets for that event are available here.

Posters at Johnson Space Center this week suggest Fred's book signing was part of a "book tour." Have other signing dates been arranged and if so... where and when?

Has there been any news regarding future book signings or the availability of signed books (other than eBay)?

Thanks for the reminder that the signed copies are available again.

I wanted to order one, but unfortunately no shipping outside the US and Canada.

Fred Haise will be at the Frontiers of Flight museum in Dallas, Texas tomorrow and there will be a book signing after his presentation. I called the museum to see if they will have extra signed books that can be ordered and shipped but was told today that they will not ship signed books.

The Smithsonian store still have some of the signed bookplate copies in stock although the copies are now second printings. The self adhesive bookplate is provided loose and not mounted in the book.

If you enter the coupon code PCS22PB on checkout it should hopefully provide free shipping within the US.
