E-Book edition of my model release book

Many people have asked whether there's an e-book edition of my book on model releases. I didn't know it, but it turns out, there are at least two editions.

There's a version for the Kindle, which you can find on amazon.com
HERE. The price is $16.49. If you're a kindle user, you're either a big fan of the device, or you're not. I have only seen them; never used one. But I do know that these devices don't render photos very well (or even if photos are rendered in this edition of the book at all). If anyone has purchased this copy, please email me and let me know.

Alternatively, you can get a PDF of the entire book, allowing you to read it on the computer using a PDF reader (which everyone has), which has great search features to get directly to the question(s) you're wondering about. The PDF version also provides great rendering of the photos. You can find it HERE.

The price of the PDF edition is actually identical to that of the printed version of the book -- $29.95 -- which turns out to be more expensive than what you pay for the book pretty much anywhere else online. On my site, you can buy it for less than amazon.com.

If you're curious about what I'm talking about, you can read quite a bit of material on my website:
