Title: Book by Noel Tyl no longer available?
Post by: Pamela Young on October 06, 2017, 06:21:48 AM
I have quite a few of Noel Tyl's books, but I don't have Synthesis & Counseling in Astrology: The Professional Manual.  I finally decided to get it, and discovered that it is apparently impossible to come by.  It doesn't seem to be out of print, but it's not available as an eBook, and when I tried to order it online it says it's out of stock online, and is not available in stores. 

Is it really not possible to get hold of a copy of this book?  I don't like using library books; I prefer to have my own copy that I can mark up at will.  Anyone know when it will be available online again?

Good to know that Noel's book is getting so popular that it is out of stock.  Sounds like you hate the idea of ordering a used one.  If I were you, I would phone Llewellyn and ask them how soon amazon or your local book store can get copies.  Also, you might try phoning local book stores anyway, because there just might be one on the shelf.   Good luck to you.

Hi Barbara,

You're right, I don't like used books; I'm a bit OCD that way.  Good suggestions; thanks very much.

As of just now Abe Books has 3 new and Amazon has 2. Both carry several used that may be clean.

I mark up all of my books, too ;).

The day before yesterday I finally received my brand new copy of the book; I had decided to give it to myself as a belated Christmas present.  I feel like a kid in a candy store!

Hi Pam, try these sites:
1.  www.addall.com/used....there are 8 of these available....click on all 8 for a description of their condition.   I have often found books in good shape here.   Avoid the one that say "underlining on some pages".   Pick the one in the best condition.

Thank you, Halina.  I have the book now, but will certainly bear the sites you mention in mind for future reference.

Hi Pam, would you mind disclosing the source where you found the Tyl book....i.e. www. ???
Sometimes I can't find a "new" book either.....so your site might prove valuable in this regard.

I mark up my books, too.  But I can deal with used books--if the prior owners' notes don't interfere with the books' content too egregiously.  A couple years ago, I couldn't find my copy of Prediction in Astrology, one of my personal favorites--and I bought another...a used copy, no less.  Apparently, Llewellyn has not reprinted that title.  Too bad--it's severely underrated!

I also own A 1951 copy of the "A to Z"--autographed by Llewellyn George, himself.

Hi Halina,

I ordered the book from Indigo (Chapters).  They had brand new copies, and the shipping fee was totally reasonable.  In fact, the book was being discounted about ten bucks, maybe because of Christmas.  I was very glad I had not gone and ordered from Amazon which also had the book, but the fees for shipping, etc., were ridiculous; it was going to cost me over $100 altogether for the book!  Indigo was definitely the way to go.

Hi Don,

Interesting that you mention Prediction in Astrology; I've just been looking into ordering a copy of that, too.  Only used copies available, apparently; but given your recommendation, I think I will go ahead and order a copy.

Hi Pam, get an AMAZON.CA credit card.....all shipping is FREE....of the 15 books I've lately ordered....all were thru' the Amazon.ca credit card.  You also get rewards if you go thru' them.

I asked for this book for Christmas and much to my surprise  I got it, no problem. If I may suggest one should work out first before buying, if you are planning on carrying it or thinking you can slip it in to your handbag as the book is rather a whopper. Amazon.ca  $70.00?  New, free shipping  as of today 1.20.2018. Please note its ca not com.

Amazon rips you off, at least on this particular book; there's just no excuse for the price they ask.

     Just got a memo email....as of March 15, 2018, Amazon.ca will no longer exist.   It was bought out by another company....so their credit card will be useless at that time and probably no free shipping either, but I would check with the company that bought them out.
