    Hi Jason,
    I tried ordering an inspection copy from Pearsons for Cairo American College but they sent the following email:

    Dear Robin
    Unfortunately we can only send inspection copies to lecturers who adopt the course.
    Kind regards

    Hello Robin, my apologies for that odd response… I have just emailed the folks at Pearson with the following:

    The message below was posted to my blog today. An IB teacher at a big international school was told he could not have an inspection copy of our book… What is that all about? Can you kindly make sure that this teacher is sent a copy for inspection? And can someone please tell Helen that it is rude to reply to our potential customers in such vague and senseless statements as that sent to Robin below? Thanks…

    Hi Jason,

    It was quickly taken care of. Thanks for your help. I thought you would want to know.

    Also, thank you for all you do for Economics education. It's nice having educators out there like you. Well done.

    That's great. I'm glad the folks at Pearson got on it quickly!
    Best, Jason

    I also asked for a sample of the book and i also got the same reply. In fact I oredered for a teachers resource book of sloman’s and didn’t get the required teachers resources inspite of the payment having been made. The excuse being the same that I needed to adopt the book as a course book.

    Nandita, send me an email to welkerswikinomics@gmail.com. I will forward your complaint to the folks at Pearson. This is really unacceptable that they are not making inspection copies available to all.

    Sorry about that, Jason

    Hello Nandita. I have emailed the folks at Pearson and asked them to arrange an inspection copy for you ASAP. Sorry about this inconvenience. I don't know what is going on there! Best, Jason

    Hi Jason

    Love the book. Are there any plans to come out with a digital version? Would be of great interest to those at 1:1 schools.

    Hi Adam,
    I am one of those teachers at a one to one school, and I would like to see a digital version myself. Pearson is starting to develop digital versions of its Baccalaureate Series now. But since my book was just published, I would guess it will not be revised for a digital edition for at least a couple of years. Probably in the second edition there will be a digital option available.

    Could not come soon enough if you asked me, but it's not up to me, unfortunately! In the mean time, check out my video lesson site, which is a nice digital complement to the book: http://www.econclassroom.com

    Hi Robin,

    I am starting at an IB school in China. I have been told that the Economics book is not that great so would like to see a copy of this book. How can I get a copy. I will be in the Uk until the 27th of July. Thanks

    Hi John,
    You can order an evaluation copy here: http://www.pearsonschoolsandfecolleges.co.uk/Seco

    Good luck!

    Jason – The book looks great. is there a teacher's guide book to go with it? Further, if i purchase the book do I gain access to all resources on your site? Regards, Andy Kerr, Canford School, England
