3.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this edition for the [demo] CD- it has only 10 poems..., November 25, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Where the Sidewalk Ends: The Poems and Drawings of Shel Silverstein (25th Anniversary Edition Book & CD) (Hardcover)
Don't pay a premium for this "edition" as the only difference is that it has a small sticker on the front jacket and a *DEMO* CD pasted into the inside of the cover. That's it.

I and my family thoroughly love this book (and many other Shel Silverstein works) and when we misplaced our copy I went in search of a new one and at the same time I wanted to purchase the CD.
I saw that this "anniversary edition" came with the CD and was excited that instead of buying the book and CD separately, I would pay a bit of a premium and kill two birds with one stone (and heck, there might even be an extra goodie included with the "anniversary edition).
Nice plan eh?

I sure wish the description had indicated that the "CD" was only a demo containing ten "highlights" from the actual CD (though Sony was nice enough to print on the demo CD that the "full" standard CD can be purchased from them. :(
Knowing that it was a Sony CD from circa 2002, I now must scan my computer to see if their infamous rootkit has been installed on my computer.

If that part had been advertised when I was ordering this I would have bought different "edition" and put the extra $$$ towards buying the REAL CD that should go with this book.
