Taken!... and I really have to say that it's a great book, done very well and really covers all scenarios and techniques, I would have preferred paper rather than digital but the price is too high so is ok in digital, but I dont like very much googleplay I would have preferred a lot more in PDF format much more manageable


PS: And I have to admit that this time it's not just a catalog of AK products but a little bit of everything

Interesting how a digital product at $46 translates into 63 euros when purchased from Europe (or at least my location)...

The price difference is most likely due to taxes or something for digital items.

Hi all

I have been refounded of my $$, for some stupid reason AK has decided that not give permission to download the book in PDF or EPUB so you can not read it offline or even print it, maybe with a bit of muck about you can do it, but like this i dont need it, i do not have a tablet i can not even transfer it to adobe digital edition or caliber the 2 programs I use with my digital books so i do not need much that, and then i dont like much google play so i got rid of ,i have my Money back and i buy the paper version of the book that I genuinely prefer although it has a good cost but it worth it, i advised im in chat that next time they can at least write it down before one buys it that is not downloadable .... I'm pretty angry. .. now i need a nice fresh beer and a fag!!
