    How do you download this book? I don’t know what an .rar file is.

  2. Ah – my mistake. As an ex-computer geek, I tend to forget that everyone else lives in the real world :) My apologies..

    A .rar file is similar to a .zip file, that is, an archive or compressed version of the file(s). Just as you can open zip files with winzip so you can get a program called winrar that opens rar files.

    You can get the trial version from http://www.rarsoft.com/download.htm – if anyone has trouble getting this book ‘unRared’ (now there’s a word you won’t find in the dictionary!) then drop me a line and I’ll help however I can.

  3. Sadly this has been removed as an online book, although I have edited the article to show the book’s availability on Amazon.
