Buy another book
This review specifically concerns the nook book/epub version on sale in early June 2012. This is by far the laziest effort I have ever seen call itself a retail ebook. No cover image. All hyphens in place. PAGE NUMBERS in-line and breaking up paragraphs! Heck, not even a copyright notice. This is what I found after I slashed my way through the DRM jungle to read it on my computer. Putting DRM on this title is like putting a padlock on a piece of doggy-doo. It looks like a raw epub conversion of a PDF scan. As a paying customer I feel gypt and out $8.56 for the sort of quality that I could have found on a newsgroup in 1996. As a reader trying to express my appreciation of the author's work I just feel insulted. Next time I'll just mail him five bucks and save both of us the trouble.Was this review helpful?

The book itself? It's fine, I'm sure. I haven't read it in 20 years--loved it when I was young and stupid--and am not sure that I want to anymore.
