The specifications are slightly off, however. When measured, it comes out to 1420.4' x 730.2' as opposed to the 142.04' x 73.02' advertised. Must have just been a typo, no worries. I found it light and easy to install, and whenever I need to read it I have no trouble. I recommend www.amazon.com/LD12-ELITE-Electric-Heavy-Recovery-Winch/dp/B007JMOPW6/ref=sr_1_11?ie=UTF8&qid=1364767628&sr=8-11 however, as the pages can be slightly difficult to turn without it. This winch is slightly pricey, however, and if you aren't going to be using this book a lot I recommend you don't invest in the winch, and merely hire several burly men instead.
One warning - pages 10393-10402 are faulty, and page 16923 is explosive in some models. Just watch out and you should be fine.
I truly recommend this book, and I say buy it before the price goes up. It's such a bargain right now.
Imagine, then, my delight in discovering that Canadians value conformance to fire code standards at a rate of approximately $21,708,000.18 per person. That's what I call a sincere investment in human welfare. My suitcase is packed. I am off to pursue my dream!
So, with a little help, I tossed the lump of platinum into the dumpster behind my office, and I splurged on a copy of "Fire Safety Design in Buildings : A Reference for Applying the National Building Code of Canada Fire Safety Requirements". My god, what a bargain! It cost only $759,780,006,384,409.88 on Amazon (plus shipping). And, as a doorstop, it works great! Just the right size.
Sure, I've had quite a few letters from the bank. And the U.S. Federal Reserve. Not sure what that's all about (maybe I'll open those letters tomorrow), but for the moment I am just happy that my visitors will stop bitching about the lump of platinum when they come around the door.
Pros: good investment opportunity, very informative regarding Canadian fire safety requirements
Cons: requires a forklift truck to move, cannot be eaten
