No matter how big The Web seems to get, the brick-and-mortar stores seem
to have an advantage because The Web never quite seems to be complete
(despite Dave's assertion in the 7/13/2000 edition of www.scripting.com
that "The Web is pretty complete now").
Regarding "Big Beyond Belief", I found mine at a Barnes and Noble a few
years ago, and I would send it to you except of course that I've already
passed it on to someone else who passed it on to someone else who passed
it... you get the picture. I'm Cc'ing FoRK on this note because maybe
George or someone else who is Big Beyond Belief knows where you can get
I did notice that none of Amazon.com, BarnesAndNoble.com, and Buy.com
have it, and doing a Google search on all three authors
reveals a scant three pages: my page's mention, a lone-wolf training
system by Jean-Marc Poulton
and a summary/book review by Chris Itmud
Darn it, not even the "rare books" store Alibris can find it
You know what would be cool? If there were some network out there that
would let me register interest in the book "Big Beyond Belief", which
then went out and notified any interested booksellers, headhunters,
weighttrainers, etc, that I'm willing to pay sweet sweet dollars for the
book, and then later one of them could notify me when they found the
book and could make it available for sale to me. The problem is, I
don't know who needs to know that I want this book, and likewise book
publishers don't know who needs to know that the book is available. I
do wish there were a company out there working on this problem.
Oh well. Best bet for now is to ask around your health club or gym.
Best of luck to you, thanks for writing.
