DemeterF - since the book is still in print and under copyright you aren't likely to find it in e-book form on the net. And if you do it means that someone is stealing it and putting it up illegally.

If you need to find a cheaper copy than a new one through Amazon you might check for a used copy at

I was not writing information word for word from it and not all the definitions. If This is wrong I was grossly misinformed. I listed the book as a reference because that is where I am getting the information and what I was told to do :)
