Question Where Can i find Drake's Electrical Dictionary?

I am currently going to school and my instructor informed the class to invest in "Drake's Electrical Dictionary" so we will learn the terminology/language. And my question is, what local store sells this dictionary? I already looked at a home depot, lowes and menards. None of the stores contained it and i was wondering how do i get my hands on this book. I didnt want to order it online cause i was hopeing to get it asap. So where did ,any one that owns one, get theirs from?

Yea i had amazon in my mind but i was hoping to buy it in the next couple of days cause the course is only 3 weeks long and i was hoping to use it for it, and buying it online, by the time i get it in the mail, the course will be over. I know i will need it for future use but i was hoping to get some use out of it for this course cause we have to learn 5 new words everyday. So i was hoping i can buy it from some store locally. so any other advice?
