Hard copy book sales are a massive rip-off at this time. It makes my blood boil when I think about how much my students are being taken for to get the textbook(s) I use in my classes. The campus bookstore routinely runs out/never has enough stock. Online sales take priority, so the response is "go buy or rent it online." The catch is that many of these students are dirt poor and rely on financial aid. They can only use financial aid in the campus bookstore. This isn't a coincidence.

I've made multiple copied handouts for students that can't get the book. Yeah, I'm breaking the law, but I've agreed to do a job; and I'm going to do it. They can fire me if they don't like it.

The PDFs that I have from Henry's book that I hand out to students were ones I asked for (and received) permission to use.
