***PLEASE BE AWARE: we do not have an automatic PDF distribution system. Your electronic book will not be immediately available to you. It may take as long as 48hours to prepare your download by hand and create the login required to do so. Most people don't wait that long but it has happened. I used to have an automatic delivery system but it was hacked and people stole our user information. This is safer. Trust us.
