Unfortunately, in Aug-2004, this book was only available from amazon.co.uk (guess they'll ship to the U.S.), amazon.de and amazon.fr, but it was not available from amazon.com (amazon.com will offer this book from April 2005 with a slightly different subtitle: Deep Simplicity : Bringing Order to Chaos and Complexity.)
