To all I must recommend _the best_ mail-order book source that I've found 
anywhere.  I've used their service many times and have found books that
I could find nowhere else.  They ship by second-day shipping at no extra 
charge and many of the over one million titles they carry are discounted 
from list price (not low-purchase-volume books like this one, unfortunately). 
 Their URL is:

http://www.amazon.com/

and 

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ats-query/3016-2316135-470457

will get you right to their on-line info on this book and will also provide a 
link to other books on "Artificial Satellites" and "Orbits".  This site is 
the technical bookworm/net surfer's dream.

Here's some of the captured text from the query URL listed above:
