I bought both from Barnes & Noble a while back, but several pages are missing from my books!! I'll check this file to see what I have been missing!

+2 Internets to you.

Likewise, I'm glad that I'm at a point in my life where I can afford a good $14 book or two.

I actually still plan to pick them up. I looked for it at borders but it was one of those smaller ones in the mall and they didnt have it. I'll pick them up, but i like the idea of it being an e-book so i can read it at work.

I have both his books sitting next to me on the bookshelf. Good stuff and I've used some of the information presented within them to good effect. But I always have to re-read everything he says about 5 times before I can make heads or tails of it. LOL

Jim, thanks. As for the piracy aspect, just blame George W. Bush for this too, since everything that's wrong with the world seems to be his fault.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

Good point, but you know I always felt that there was an ugly side there too. I have to buy something to find out its crap... the author was rewarded for crap. Or, its not worth it to me to buy the book... so I'll never buy it, though I would be interested in it. If I'm never ever ever going to buy it, how would reading it free have any impact on anything whatsoever - other than denying it to me?

It makes me think of the scheme being used by some major bands like Radiohead and Nine Inch Nails - they put the music out there free, and ask you to support their efforts with a donation. I recently downloaded NIN latest and determined it to be worth $10 (same price I would have paid on iTunes)... all of which goes directly to the band. In fact, even if I would have only given $5, on a whole, the band still makes more than they would with a record contract... even with the tons of people who download and contributed nothing - because many of them never would have bought it anyhow.

I think a person would would buy a book, especially electronic media - would likely contribute to an author if asked. And a person who wouldn't buy a book, would simply go without anyway.

Seems not much changes from a "benefit of the author" perspective.

edit - I'm tired. Go with OSD's answer: It's Bush's fault.

The way I heard it was he was talking to his France-American chef who is an avid sport bike rider about these books and the President said to him in regards to all the information it presented vs, the cover price "For real, that's a steal"

Apparently a CNN reporter was standing by and overheard the conversation and reported it as "For real, you steal"? which incensed the people from the American Civil Liberites Union, who instantly called for a boycott of the book because it incites racism. So upon hearing this Al Sharpton called for the immediate impeachment of George W. Bush and the firing of Don Imus. He then went on to call for everybody to download these books for free because it would hurt the publisher of the books, who is a strong supporter of the Iraq war "for oil" , a freind of Dick Cheney's heart surgeon's Nieces, car mechaic's, housekeepers nephew who apparently is a huge investor in Haliburton..... or is it that his "heart is hurtin"? I'm just asking because he is 300 pounds and out of shape because apparently due the fact that he went to a school whose "No student left behind policy" meant the cafeteria dessert line too!


........Or something like that. Yep...Bushes fault again!

Oh and I agree. Great Books. I have read them both many times!
