Do we have the TOC or sample chapter available somewhere in the internet for review?

The book is also available on Safari. I have just added it to my virtual bookself so I can leave my hardcopy book at home. I had to think of some way to prevent my collegues from stealing it.

Getting someone to think and try something out is much more useful than just telling them the answer.

Why you don't share this book with your collegues ? It should be a good book as it is allowed to make a book promotion in this forum.

Can't share because that would be illegal. These authors put a lot of time, energy and hard work to write their books, and to illegally obtain this copyright information is a slap in their faces.

With that in mind you can find it

here.

Since when is it illegal to loan someone a book?

Sorry Mark but your comments appear to be rather "rude". If "Sharing" books is "Illegal" than we must close all "libraries". Companies/organizations usually invest on books which are shared by the staff and it is very common practice.

"Sharing" and "copying/reproducing" are two entirely different things. IMHO, "sharing" books among colleagues/class-mates is not illegal. Not everyone can afford to buy expensive books. To date, I never heard of any law whereby "sharing" books is declared "illegal".

BTW, Did you not share a book in your life ever?

Saeed
