I highly, highly, highly, highly recommend this book. It breaks everything down in to easily understood bites while enlivening it with humour!!!!!!

It will indeed be a superb book! Amazon.com lists copies of the 1st edition on their site, including a couple reviews of that edition

http://www.amazon.com/Passion-Steam-...=1416870523838

Amazon also has a few book dealers listing 1st edition copies beginning at $139.52 up to $273.39

http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listi...qid=1416870455

The Revised 2nd edition we're publishing is an excellent value at $45.00 for a hardbound book, especially an expanded, all-color effort featuring 240 pages! Make sure to add a copy of the Revised 2nd edition to your Holiday wish list!

1st Edition selling USED for more than $270. ! Imagine what my signed copy would go for - wow.

Thank you Mark. At that appreciation rate my very comfortable retirement is now assured.

Chris,
I'm guessing the value will plummet now that there are more available. ;-)

Read, look for something new, develop and never stop there and there is a guarantee of success, good luck to everyone and good books to you!
I just reported this SPAM
