I gave up on the civilized (and overly stressful) life and moved to the rainforest at the age of 49, and upon turning 50, began aging backward. I'm now 41 going on 40. And am 30 lbs. lighter, and far, far stronger.

There's no substitute for a real paper version of a book. I'm into C and V books as well; hence the username?

I agree three hundred percent Bob. I like to be able to open my copy of this book now and again, peruse it and re-read the chapters. And to know it's there on the shelf when I want to look at it. If you decide you'd rather "snuggle up" with your computer, Dane, send that book to someone who'll appreciate it. I'm sure many members here would love to own it.

The computer geeks can keep their E books, give me a paper copy I can
hold in my hands. I love books, I read and reread mine, so what if they are
obsolete. I hope enough of like minded people keep buying them so that
they are always available.

Mine is, along with a stack of old Bicycling magazines and a few other books, sitting on my bedside table. 10 minutes of reading unwinds the mind well before bed....

Kind of the whole point in my "book" Noglider. Though this book is long out of print, the authors will never see any benefit from this online scan.

If it were profitable to re-print some press would have done it by now. A free market will police itself.

Interesting Dbakl. He is profiled in my paperback edition. Pages 168-171.

edit: he's there Dbakl. About 5/8 of the way down the scroll.
