When the proper Second Edition of the Loose Canon is completed, it will be available free of charge as a pdf document, as per the original agreement with the authors.
Do not pay to buy this book.
The real Loose Canon 1st Edition, can be found online using a simple Google Search.
He has been informed of this, over and over since publication, by various contributors of the book, AND by members of the council who are still working on compiling the Second Edition. And Mr. Whitfield STILL has not taken down this book.
It's not even "Complete". He has removed portions, based on those authors who found out he planned on publishing the book and objected. But Mr. Whitfield has not gotten permission from the remaining authors. And the Second Edition hasn't even been finished yet, so even if he HAD kept everything that was currently in the working copy, it STILL wouldn't be "Complete".
Even his title is a lie.
Mr. Whitfield, prove that you are an ethical person. Cease publication of this book and apologize to its authors, the Council of the Olive Garden, and the Pastafarian community.
Also, I got the 79.99 thing being a joke and even laughed in spite of myself but listing another seller "The Canon Guy" (A new seller, surprise surprise and billing yourself as THE Canon Guy, really?) as re-selling it for 79.99 *Very Rare* seems a bit less like a joke and more like a sad attempt to make your ludicrous price of 13 (Remember, the legit book is 0.00) seem really peachy by comparison.
To add insult to injury, granted it's not your fault *directly*, Your joke list price was taken seriously by -Daily Deals-. They're a large respected seller, over 400k transactions and a 95% satisfaction rating, and so they are getting used copies for cheap and creating bargain sales of only 50 dollars! Well surely people won't buy that when your price is lower! I wager that's almost entirely true but with all the elderly and Tech illiterates shopping for family who aren't as used to this online world there are plenty who would see 'used' and go straight for it without noting the current price, then see your fake sellers new price and think what a steal and buy it for their son, grandaughter, etc.. Well, buyer beware right? Yes. Unless... If FSM does press an intellectual property suit you will owe for all the illegal sales' profits including, if I'm not mistaken, those sales that are verified by innocent re-sellers. Your saving grace, again, is the unlikely demand large enough to be affecting the techno inept.
Well, now that all that is said and done I bet you, the reader, might be thinking; Why all the examples and hypothetical situations? Why not just call him a thief and be done with it like the others? I was going to but I noticed the new and used seller thing, realized what was up, and ran a quick check. "Am I busy?" I said aloud to no one but myself. "NO!" I screamed, "in fact, I am bored!" and here we are. Do I truly care deep down in my core if you make money from it? No. Do I care in that same place if you get sued. No, but you may possibly deserve it. (What if it's all to buy the veterinary care of an adorable, sweet, innocent, army of kittens who need cancer treatments to prevent hairball tumors. You never know) I did, however, feel rather strongly that people have a right to know exactly what's up here before they choose to buy your book or choose the original, free, legit version.
One very last thing at the end of my last, last thing. Some things positive and sincere at that. I noticed something on the product picture the leaflet about you. You are a Baptist Deacon. You are also ordained at FSM. For just a split second I thought that didn't mesh, then I realized I was falling victim to the same mentality and narrow-mindedness that FSM is against. You have faith in your religion but also have faith in the right for others to believe whatever they want. I know there are plenty of Christians like that but it was still a cool epiphany moment and good on you for being a good example in that regard. And most sincerely, thanks for your service.
IF THINGS COULD HAVE WORKED OUT SO THAT NO ONE WOULD HAVE RECEIVED ANY MONEY FROM IT AND CREATESPACE. THERE COULD HAVE A 2ND EDITION IN BOOK FORM BUT THE CREATOR OF THIS LIE HAS MADE SURE THAT THEIR SHALL NEVER BE A BOOK FORM OF THE LOOSE CANON. EVER!!!!!
FROM NOW ON THE ONLY PLACE TO GET ANY EDITION OF THE TRUE LOOSE CANON IS HERE AT LOOSE-CANON . INFO
