Just went there to order one and was surprised to see the shipping charge for the $10.00 booklet is $13.26. They say, "...if estimated charges are more than actual shipping charges, the difference will be refunded to you." So maybe the actual shipping would be lower. Or maybe not. Just seems odd that in this day and age the software being used cannot generate an accurate shipping charge.
