Dear citizen8888,

Thanks for your question.  First, let me request that if any of the
following is unclear or if you require any further research – please
don’t hesitate to ask me for a clarification.

Based on Ingram data, obtained through Ingram’s ISBN hotline, here is
up-to-the-minute data on the book with ISBN – 0764122002 –

Copies on hand in Ingram distribution centers – 80
Copies on order –32
Copies on back order – 0

Sales for the week ending 3/30 – 23
Sales in 2003 through 3/30 – 345
2002 Sales – 262

In order to assess the total number of books sold, industry analysts
apply a multiplier of between 6 and 10 to the Ingram numbers. 

2002 sales – between 1550 and 2620

2003 sales to date – between 2100 and 3450 for  of the year,
therefore anticipated sales could be pegged at between 8400 and
approximately 14,000 in 2003.
