I resisted for about 15 minutes, then I pulled up my bookfinding web
pages.  Locating the above title used for under $5, I ordered it.
It'll be here at the end of the week and if nobody else has anything
to say, I'll go through it and post some opinions.  If nothing else,
it'll definitely be 'interesting' to have around.
