If the answer is Donald J Trump then it must have been a fucking stupid question.

I just wanted to pop in here to point out that Gorightly seems to actually be just another two-bit asshole and fuck giving that guy money for some shit he didn't even write.

I don't think so. I bought the book, I'm reading it and it seems pretty well researched and it's not just a collection of pieces from the earliest Discorians.

Its not not a cornerstone of historical research, but it's better than anecdotal and it's probably the most in depth account of the early Discordian society which is a nice thing to have for those who care (most dont, but it's interesting to me)

Question - How much does it cost and where does the money go?

I'd probably find it quite interesting, from a historical angle if nothing else but I'm very averse to actually paying cash money.

I'm not saying any of those who have bought it to date should scan and upload it for general consumption. I'm just saying I doubt I'll read it unless that occurs.

I had images of brown burlap, the paper is fine... its like text book paper, it's not fancy, but fancy paper is very expensive for printing.

I just don't think it will last very long. Which is kind of sad for a book. I  am kind of conflicted really because if it had been printed on paper which didn't pucker up with the humidity of a hand then it would probably have seemed to be too expensive to buy.

ALSO: I agree with your brief review 100%

It's probably the same paper quality as the et cetera was.  Which isn't bad, but it's already starting to yellow a bit.

Well my excuse for the longest time was that I couldn't find the european version and I was damned if I was going to pay more for shipping than for the book itself, no matter how good the book. And it is very good.

Pretty much this. I'll give it an eyeball if it's free but I'm not giving that misogynistic piece of shit any money.

On his Facebook wall, and I doubt it's still there.
