Than you whoever uploaded this! Been wanting to read it for ages and it's pricey to buy in New Zealand.

Ok, so I'm gonna get started on adding this to the library in text. Gonna take a while, since it all needs to be reformatted from PDF, which is a hassle...pretty much going to read the whole book again!

That would be awesome. To save time formatting text I use things like Word auto complete to mass replace errors and extra line breaks and things like that. Also, a couple of small chunks of it have been done already and are here so you could just copy and paste those bits.

Just learned there was a blockquote function :P so, I'll be using that instead of italics for quotes....someone shoulda told me!

Sorry mate, thought you knew and had made a deliberate choice. If you've used italics so far you could just keep it the same, although block quote would be better

you can always use ctrl-F to find italics tags, and paste blockquote ones in their place.

The project of me putting this into the library in text form has been on halt due to me being busy, but now it is on halt because it is too difficult to do on a netbook without a mouse (all the reformatting neccesary, etc).

If someone else wants to take this on, go head, otherwise, I'll get to it when I get my desktop back or get a mouse (neither will happen for at least a month probably)

7 months later (and still without desktop or a mouse...), I think I'll start this back up.

Probably worth mentioning that I never finished this. Copy and pasting, reformating, etc this much was a bigger task than I thought when I began it.

All the text is here now, except the bibliography and index which are in the PDF.
