American's are always looking to "buy" their way out or anything "quick & easy".  so there are always suckers for that sort of product...

I had read good reviews about it and heard good things about it (bb.com forums), there was some crappy version being posted online for d/l (someone scanned some of it into a comp made it into a pdf), so you can find parts of it I think.

Couldn't find this before, but here's the NY Times shitting all over the book: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/01/07/books/07book.html.
