    Hi there,
    Is this book available in English? ZDL and amazon.cn are selling the simplified chinese version only.
    Many thanks,

    Hi Ade,
    Although the book was written it English, it was written for translation into Chinese for publication in China. I need to rewrite it for the US publication. However, I am thinking of possibly making the unedited uncensored version of the original English manuscript available on my website, but will have to get the advice and permission from my publisher. Thank you for your interest, I will be sure to let you know when it is available in English. How did you hear about this book? Are you in China?
