No books sent out? $12.95 for a pdf? I don't think so...

Well we can pass the hat around and buy a group purchase ;)

I'd like to see the author post something on here. What cars he has, or say hello etc.

That is the same seller? It's very kind to offer a discount to us "sambies" however, I would rather buy a real copy of a book.

I'd buy one.

A trip to Office Depot: printer cartridge, ream of paper, binder, and 3-hole punch. Add a little time and one can have a paper book made from a .pdf....

Use the .pdf in a Mac, and make a BOOK.

Poof.

I never realized I had an opinion about "Books" but I do have a bunch of them. I wouldn't waste my time or money for a download. I have however bought "books on tape" (CD) for listening while driving. That's not the same though.

Save the Book

Wonder if the seller owns the copyright?

It may simply be a compilation of all the articles and information that is already on the internet. There was someone selling a gas heater manual a while back on eBay too, but you could download the same thing for free.

I think the guy should be a good sport and upload it to Samba achives...

Now your talkin'. I already print forums for information on particular topics but, they're filed away for reference. Copyright is a good point.

I'd still buy a book. Rolling Eyes
