Weird Kindle rental

This was strange. A Kindle rental. I tried it for 30 days and when I went to extend/buy the book the website said it wasn't available. Anyway, it appears to have been writing quite some time ago in Australia I'm guessing. Some interesting nuts and bolts advice for journalists, particularly those interviewing politicians and celebrities. I only got about half way through it before the rental expired. Oh well...
Can't extend rental

When I clicked on the 'extend or purchase' link nothing showed up. My only options are to rent the same book from a different edition for $7 or not finish reading it.

The authors wrote a practical, well-structured, easy-reference guide for all print journalists (students, trainees and novices). It covers, among other things, the nuts and bolts of preparation (research and planning), conducting interviews (interviewing techniques), types of interviewees & reading body-language, recording methods, and (a few tips on) processing the recorded material. It concludes with law and ethics. Although the book mainly addresses (potential) professional journalists, this user-friendly guide seems also useful for non-professional, occasional journalists (e.g., special company or community assignments).

Adams shows journalists and aspiring journalists how to get the job done. Conducting an interview is much more than having an interesting conversation with someone. Adams shows how and why.
