      I'm interested in purchasing the PDF or book. However, I'm having challenges with Bersin's website/links. I've left a message with some to help me. Hopefully, I will hear from someone soon. Thank you.

      Dear John,

      Thanks for your question. As far as I can see, Bersin's website works pretty similar to Amazon. If you copy and paste the link above into your address bar, it will lead you to the page where you can buy the PDF ($795) or a hardcopy of the book ($895). Click on your selected preference, then click on Add to Cart. A pop-up will appear asking you if you want to Proceed to Checkout or Continue Shopping. To pay for your selection, click Proceed to Checkout. Then, like Amazon, you should be asked to fill out some forms - name, address, credit card details, and so on.

      I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions.
      Kind regards,
