Amazing Customer Service!!

I needed to have the book resent to another address other than the one listed. The book seller provided me with a USPS tracking number and I was able to locate the book and have it forwarded to my current address. I had several email exchanges with the book seller and each one was most helpful. This was the finest customer service I have received in years.
