I don't think PH could be forced to do this - persuaded perhaps - forced
no.
 
I'll write and ask them.
 
The book is however sadly out of date.
 
For those who are interested I have started writing a new book.
 
It has proved to be difficult to find a publisher so I will be using a
print on demand service to print the book.
 
I hope you'll all buy it. If you want any particular material covering
send me a mail.

	What are the chances of "Concurrent Programming in Erlang" book
becoming available online in its entirety?
	
	Why I'm asking this is that the book is clearly out of print
(see Amazon here
<http://www.amazon.com/Concurrent-Programming-in/dp/013508301X/sr=8-1/qi
d=1156864630/ref=pd_bbs_1/104-0196500-5209562?ie=UTF8>  and here
<http://www.amazon.com/Concurrent-Programming-in/dp/B000GXDXH8/sr=8-12/q
id=1156864630/ref=sr_1_12/104-0196500-5209562?ie=UTF8> ). The only
available books are available at ridiculous prices
<http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/013508301X/ref=dp_olp_0/104-0196
500-5209562?ie=UTF8&condition=all> .
	
	Practical Common Lisp <http://www.gigamonkeys.com/book/>  has
been online forever, it seems. And the publisher gave the author
perennial rights to publish the book on the web.
	Moreover, Paul Graham's "On Lisp" is now also available for
download <http://www.paulgraham.com/onlisp.html> .
	
	May be Prentice Hall could be forced into giving the rights to
the book back to its authors? And may be the authors could be persuaded
to create an online copy of it? :) 
	
	Or, better still, may be the authors could be persuaded to write
a new book :)
