  1. Is a pdf copy, at least a read only version available online?

  2. No. This is a real book, published by a conventional publisher. They say they have costs: peer review, printing,marketing etc. So, sorry no freebies.

    The good news is that Indian prices are very low.

  3. what will we do with our bookshelves if even once in a way we dont purchase a real book?
