Hmmm, I'm getting a 404 error, "Server not found!" Would you check that link again please?

I tried to find my copy a few days ago. I bought a copy for an American Lit class some four decades ago. I doubt it would be included in a reading list with today's colleges and universities.

Crucis, The original link was a to a Rand Institute website, but I could not find my way back to their story.. I found another one at 'The Economist' that had some of the same information, or at least the idea of it.

Sales of the book have skyrocketed in the last few months.

Not hard to imagine why.

I've reread that book about every 3 years since I was a junior in high school and a teacher gave me a copy.

I had to finally go buy a new one, it had gotten so dog-eared.
