Good stuff and cheap
The good news is this is a great book and very well read. The bad news - for me - is that I bought it elsewhere before it was on itunes and paid a lot more for it. Amazing that they can sell unabridged books so much cheaper than other places. Next time, I'll wait till the book I want is on itunes.
