Not happy with the Publisher
I bought this when it came out originally. I enjoyed it. I would like to be able to read the ebook I own, but no: When the publisher decided to issue this as a print book as well as a digital, they pulled the previous digital version. To read the book I already own—it’s there in my iBooks library, listed as “no longer available”—I will have to buy it again.
