Please remove the current "Publisher's Comments" section that refers to this book as "electronic paperback format." It is no such thing! This is a 6"X9" paperback edition, with nothing electronic about it. The current "from the publisher" comment must go with some other edition of this title. But on this page, the comment is very misleading. Please revise!About the Author:
