Hi everybody,

I am in need of a book review. I have seen Slack's book mentioned
several times over the last year since I joined the list and have
just located a source for a copy; however, the price is a bit steep;
$160 US for a first edition copy in fine condition. Could someone
tell me the original publication prices? I'd like to know how much
of a premium I'd be paying for a _collector's item_. The second
question is - is it worth the price? I've never seen the book, so
I would appreciate some details about the contents, quality and
accuracy of the book.
