It’s not hard to digitize the book if you work in corporate or an office. It cost me $3 at FedEx to have the binding stripped. I work in a corporate office so it took less than 10 minutes to run the whole thing through their big fax/copy/scan machine. We also have access to Acrobat Pro which you can use to automatically lay an OCR layer over the book making it searchable. Best decision I made all year. Also, they said they could put notebook binding back on the book for around the same price. Now that I have digital copy I don’t really care about the hard copy though.
FYI, no I won’t send it to anyone. I figure if Jim wanted a digital version he would have put one out. This is for personal use but I wanted to bring it up because some people might think it is more difficult than it really is.
