Thanks Halscott.
That DOES look like a good one.
I searched/googled it and read some positive comments
by some who own the title.
The only drawback...? - The Price! whoa.
I'll try and see if I can find it and bid on it at auction
on eBay if possible. I've done that for other books and
made out okay.
Sometimes www.half.com has good inexpensive used books.
Thanks for your recommendation.
