A person can read it all online, but if you want to download it you have to join up. Not willing to pay since I have the books.

Really insulting, since it was copied from a library book!

Good material, though.

Probably a patent violation of the copyright law, for sure.

Comment: Copyright violations don't look so bad (and maybe you'd be left alone) if you didn't CHARGE for the material.

Consider: If someone buys the illicit copyright violated material and then posts it for free, what complaint will the violator have? (And yes, we have documented occasions where a drug dealer called the police because some rotten thief stole their cache -- a cautionary tale, since the original dealer was usually sentenced to jail and who know what happened to the thief?).

I started reading this. I knew a lot of these people personally, but do I really want to know anymore? They have already played too big a part in my life now do I want to read about them and obsess about them. It is amazing that these mediocre people have so many things written about them, but then I guess it's the same for most people who become 'big' in some way. Then people write books about them and analyse their lives and motivations. I am always struck with the idea that HWA came a long way despite ordinary origins and not being an outstanding intellect.

You can say the same thing about a lot of politicians and psychopaths.

Going a long way to ruin people's lives is not a great accomplishment.
