I saw this new Kindle book on Amazon this week and bought it right away. I’ve really enjoyed their earlier book.

Anyway, just wanted to let people know there was something new.

Ray, another thank you for pointing this out! I downloaded the free sample, I'm on p. 37, and I'm afraid I'll be out £20 to buy it as soon as my last free page is done... I'm not so enamored of the "proven research" rhetoric, but I'm liking their writing and their substance, and the fine detail, regardless. A lot.

That title sounds like it was written by Datus Proper. Try as I might, I still can't get my arms around digital titles. I want print, I want ink, I want typography. I want to feel well crafted papers between my finger tips and smell the mustiness of the ages every time I turn the page. It's at this point in my dissertation where my kids break in and say, "Jeez, dad..., seriously?"

Sorry, we've had this discussion before; thank you for pointing this book out. I'm going to get better about this stuff, I promise.

I’m with ya Mike. I’d gladly have bought a paper copy, but I think this publication is only available in digital format.

I’ve warmed up to digital copies over the years. It has allowed me to read many of the very old books, without going broke in the process. Lately I’ve grown fond of the digital search function when looking for specific info.

Videos and QR code links are pretty sweet…. Plus no paper cuts… :D :lol:

After a lifetime of programming computers, I'm digital only. I find holding a physical book while reading incredibly burdensome. Plus, just like my RPN calculator, nobody borrows my stuff. :D

Your RPN would not be safe around me. I learned to program on a RPN calculator and have never been able to use a regular calculator ever since. RPN rules!

Have you tried an app called PCalc 42? It’s an excellent RPN calculator for the iPhone.
