I would buy this book IF there was an electronic version.  It looks to be an interesting book and I would like to have it for my collection but I am unwilling to have another paperback or hardcover book as I am trying to get rid of what I have.  Instead I will read the copy at the university library that is electronic.  WAKE UP Publishers!  Start delivering all books electronically as I will not be buying them if they are not.
