Hi, I realize the book has only been out a week or so but my purchasing decisions are almost entirely are influenced by what the general public has to say about it. Is there a place where I can atleast read a couple of user reviews for this book?
Also, I must admit that the price of your book is considerably more than the traditional study guides available out there, ofcourse your book as you claim has a longer shelf life in that it can be used as a reference later on. Is that the reason for this?

Our friendly bartender Marc Peabody is in the process of writing a review which should be published here shortly. See also:

I've already discussed the pricing issue here:

It's mostly because the first run is small compared to the number usually run by much larger publishers, added to the fact we don't have international offices. If the book were to be a success, a larger second run would enable the cost to be lowered.
