I am not very happy with Amazon right now.  I bought the paperback version of "The 
Global Achievement Gap" by Tony Wagner.   It is a terrific book.  I have been 
underlining and taking margin notes like crazy.  The problem?  When I reached page 
195, it skipped to page 219.  I contacted Amazon, asking them to send me the 
missing pages and explaining that I did not want a new book, because I want to keep 
my current one with the underlining and margin notes.  Seems that they are unable 
to send me the missing pages.  I can return the book for a replacement copy, or 
they will send me a new one at a 25% discount.  Neither of those choices is 
acceptable to me.

I've tried to find it in a local library - but there are no copies of the paperback 
available anywhere.  So - I am turning to this group.

If you have the paperback version and are willing to scan the missing pages and 
send them to me - I would be VERY appreciative.  It is the paperback version, and I 
am missing page 195 through (and including) page 218.  

If no one can do that, I guess I will keep trying to get Amazon to do the right 
thing.  Thanks!!

For those of you who have not read the book - it is excellent.  Really makes a 
clear case for the direction education needs to take. Unfortunately, the author did 
not consider libraries.  I see our standards all through the book - and yet, once 
again, we are ignored.  So - I am energized by the ideas, but frustrated that it is 
missing more than just a few pages :-(

I might have to contact the author to get the missing pages - and let him know what 
else the book is missing :-)
