I have it- I love it- I like that it is bare bones and broke down well.

but it is easier to learn by watching someone else do it (SM video plug )

Hey, Kamakaz,

If you haven't purchased it yet, you can get the best price at "www.overstock.com". I just bought my copy from there a couple days ago.

I looked at the book at a bookstore a few weeks ago and was quite impressed with what it showed, especially for a nooB like me. I am looking forward to it.

im assuming those are american prices, so after shipping costs, it would be cheaper to buy it from www.Chapters.ca, but thanks anyway man
