You've confirmed my worry about the buy button being not only below the fold, but really buried below the long div list of ebook topics.
I think I'll try to move that vertical topics list div to the right and get the buy button box at least up to the top row of the topic box and to its left.
It's technically tricky because all of this is really in just 1 column (no 2nd column) and getting CSS inline layout code to behave in different browsers inside a WordPress column and with their editor seems tricky.
2 and 3 column pages are available in my theme, but would require PHP hacking to get the widths right for what I need - and I'm just now learning PHP coding. Also those hacks have to get redone every time the theme is updated (I think personal child themes are only for CSS).
May have to resort to an invisible table. And with no tables in the WordPress editor, I'll have to build it in Dreamweaver and then hack it into WordPress.
WordPress has improved their built-in editor over the years, but it's still a dog, compared to a real HTML editor. Frankly I really despise it - much as I like other aspects of WordPress. The way it messes with your code every time you update your page (and not even any line numbers) is lame. I do use the Genesis commercial framework on top of WordPress, which helps some.
Not sure what bothers you about the text. It is an unusual typeface, but I though I'd laid out the text pretty well.
Can you or anyone say more about the text please? (on the ebook sales page).
Anyway thanks so much for the help and excellent advice. I'm starting to feel that it does need to be better and it's good to get that confirmed.
Wonder what would happen if I just do the page correctly in Dreamweaver and try to drop it into an inline div in WordPress - rather than fighting that WordPress editor? Worth a try, I think.
