Not to be a buzzkill, but being excited about an article still isn't consent to give out their work for free. If the book is as influential and useful as you say, kicking some money (seeing it as $40 CAD) towards it is a good habit.
Support the people who do good work 🙂
I've purchased at least 10 copies of this book (definitely not at $40 each, not sure where that's quoted). The author is fully aware of the content in my article.
Thanks for fighting for the content creator!
