I checked with the Publication Unit in FRIM today on the pricing of the book Tropical Fruits, Seeds, Seedlings and Trees. The price at the FRIM bookshop is 250 Malaysian Ringgit. I mailed one copy to a friend in the USA today and that cost me RM 180 by postal air mail. The cost by Courier would have exceeded RM 300. The weight after packing was over 2 kg.
For overseas orders, the FRIM price is USD 150, not including postage.
As author I would like the book to be distributed quickly and cheaply but that is our of my hands.
