 The Eckels book, (see above) is available for $27.25 per copy from 
 BookPool.com (My favorite online tech-book store).  Shipping
 costs range from very cheap to "tomorrow morning".  (Your choice)


	Free shipping for any order over $40.  to all 50 states!
	(Even, apparently, Hawaii and Alaska)

DISCLOSURE: I have no business connection with BookPool, excepting
being a satisfied customer.

One feature Bookpool has on their website, that every online-retailer
SHOULD have:  You can set your shipping destination and get a
calculation of shipping costs on your order, BEFORE entering your
credit card info. Nice.

Linux/Open Source.  Your base belongs to you, free, forever.
