THEN either only the financial reasons are the cause, and he claims that they are not, or he is offended by the action of a one and then he decide to punish all his readers, and that's nonsensical.
As i don't assume anyone being so silly to do that, then i suppose that he simply got disaffected or whatever. easy exit: i saw other half- commercial only publications, born as works of passion for a subject, being canned because at a point the work involved is too much for the repay, so i don't judge him badly, only i rest my case that that explanation has little sense.
i'm ok if we disagree and i sincerely hope that all the people waiting for the book will get it in the end.
