It really steams me when you take shots at this book because you either don't have or won't spend the money to buy it. I suspect you'd complain about something if you got it for free. This book has great value no matter what the current price. Affordable is a relative term. You make it sound like the authors are responsible for its price. They are not. If you want to criticize this book here, make the criticism about something that is actually in the book and under the authors' control.
