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.
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?
