I really want some of my Spanish-speaking friends to be reading this book.  Ideally, there would be an edition available that's double the length:  The left page in English, and the right page in Spanish.  After some digging, I found that there seems to be a Spanish edition available through random side-vendors on Amazon.  But I can't find a decent image of it and it's twice as expensive.  I think it's odd that the Spanish translation isn't available on Amazon, Barnes Noble, NYC Public Library etc... This is an important book and it should be more readily accessible -

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Bethany,
That's an interesting point.  I think that the Spanish version is published by an overseas company that may not have purchased US rights for distribution (this is just a guess). 

The Spanish language book appears to be well done.  I have a copy, but I would not be able to tell you anything about the quality of the translation.

Thanks for responding Peter.
Well - I guess we'll just have to buy it and find out.  PS I made book requests with both the NYPL and the Brooklyn Public Library to carry both the English and Spanish versions. We'll see!  PS - If you decided to come out with a side-by-side Eng/Span book - I bet you'd get a LOT of new sales. 

Thanks again~!
