    Check out
    
        http://abebooks.com
    
    and you will find copies of Mixter for $3 used at several places.  I have
    bought many books online via abebooks and have always been satisfied with my
    results.

    Peter,
    Amazon does not show Mixter available as a new book. Any idea who the
    publisher is, or where to get a copy?
