    Fun!

    I really like the concept of this book. I have used it several times with great results. I wish there was a volume two!

    cd files would be nice

    I guess I messed up here. If a regular book has a cd/dvd, how does one get those files? This book is useless without them and B&N does not let you return a mistake as Amazon does.
