    Shmid has contact info on his site here, drop them a line and ask. You'll probably have to get an international money order.

    Your local bookstore might not have it on stock but did you ask if they can special order it?

    See if your bank or currency exchange offers pre-paid credit cards. You basically put a few bucks on a disposable credit card. Great for gifts. I get one every Christmas. You can use them just like normal credit cards. That could solve your problem.

    “Ala Prima” is a great book. I highly recommend getting it. Best of luck to you.

    thanks for the help guys, gonna follow elwells advice first, since the book is cheaper on Schmid's website.

    Stine- thanks so much for the link it helped a lot, if I won't be able to pay the money for the book if I order it from Schmids website I gonna order it from your link. Thanks!

    Edit: since I wasn't able to buy a looooooooooooad of book because of my credit-card problem, my parents decided to treat me one. Problem solved, thanks for all the help !!

    If anybody else would like to contribute to this hell, I'm willing to listen.

    I'm planning on buying this book as well.
