I remember Hank posting some info after BigJim's passing about Jim's daughter not allowing the book to be reprinted.
Thankfully HANK had the whole transcript from his interview on HIS website, so HE has the rights to that content.
If someone wants to take the time to build their OWN book, I believe ALL the info that is in the book is in that HobbyTalk interview.
A little editing and copy/paste and you can make all your own pages w/pictures, and illustrations that were included.
Personally, I just keep that link in my favorites for reference (Plus I copied the entire content onto my hard drive...just in case something ever happens to it there.)
