Thank you for any information that you might have.

  Thanks for the information.  I didn't find an e mail address for Prentice 
Hall, is there another way that i can get this book in electronic format?  I 
already baught the book from a local book store that sells books to colege 
students.  Could there be something that i can use to boster my argument for 
more books to become available in electronic format right after the book is 
published?  That is really where i'm trying to go?  Thank you for any 
information that you might have.

you're in college anywhere in the USA you get your membership free. Just 
contact them and let them know.

Pierson's have gone poorly. They just don't work well with the blind community; 
and I'm faculty! I'd hate to see how little they might do for students. :P

books to see if they have electronic versions of the books available from the 
beginning?  This is the question that i have because i'm taking classes this 
term and i want to make sure that i have access to the textual material in the 
books at the same time that my sighted counterparts do.  Is that too much to 
ask and it could definiately cut down on having to depend on rfbd because they 
are a good place but because they don't have a great number of volunteers who 
are knowledgable about certain subjects and the fact that it takes a year at 
the least before a book is completed.  What choices do we really have.
