I have a request for you. The challenge I am facing is of ready availability of the book (in India) and my business calls for immediate fix for the challenge (so even Amazon takes 15 days for delivering the book from US) - I had to seek your help.
Can you provide me a little insight to what is going wrong in theory if we run a logistic on a ration of 1:500 ?
