Sonniep5: I find this very manipulating and frustrating, if you are going to share it share it for few days so people don't have to be hostage of the time and network speed.I don't understand what kind of marketing game is this. If you want people to pay it, just say it and direct accordingly and users will be happy to pay and download properly.
The book was offered on two separate weekends. It is the season of giving, Uwe did that, and it was very nice of him to offer his book. The fact that for whatever reason you could not download it is a shame, but get over it. I don’t think this is a marketing game, sometimes people just try to be nice, and that is what Uwe has done. I understand your frustration, but how can you expect Uwe to continue to give away his work! I ask you, should Uwe give it away for 1 week, 2 weeks, 3 weeks, or just till you have it?
I find the attitude of some on here very sad. The fact that they could not download this book, even though there were many ways posted here to do so. They are acting like little children, plain and simple!As for me, I say thank you to Uwe for the offer of the book, it is very nice. Merry Christmas to Uwe and all on this site!
