This ebook is a fabulous resource (I'm trying to be modest, here) and is being sold at a reduced price ($4.99) to make up for formatting inconsistencies that made their way in during conversion to ebook format. Because the file used is old (first edition published in 2005) and wasn't originally formatted to be an ebook, the table of contents is somewhat of a mess, paragraph separations are sometimes inconsistent, and footnotes are at the end of each chapter, rather than at the bottom of the page or end notes in the back of the book, itself. My apologies for that, but I've tried to make it up to you in the form of a reduced price.

The ebook is shareable to friends and family within two weeks of sharing.
