Is there a way to get an electronic copy of Bill Mollison's manual?

    I'm not looking for a pirated copy. At the moment I use a copy I scanned myself from my own book while planning my lessons.

    I prefer an electronic copy as it's easier, lighter, and slightly quicker to use an electronic copy while working on editing my lessons.

    But if there was an official e-Book version of the manual sold online, not only would that mean I would be able to purchase it (hopefully at a price relative to the lower cost in producing an electronic copy), but it would mean I could hit search in Adobe Acrobat and quickly find terms or sources I'm interested in.

    Maybe I'm unconventional, but my need for Mollison's book has always been for regular referencing, and I usually cross-reference it with other sources, but an e-Book version would be a stand-out investment in my opinion..

    Anyway should I be directing this to the publishers instead of this website? Any tips would be welcome :D

    Thanks for the links, but again they are just image versions of the book, not electronic versions... Sorry I guess I'm being picky, but it would be nice (and easy for the publishers to make) a searchable e-book version of this. Especially since I'm thinking about getting myself a Kindle :D
