Wow what a ripoff, the book is just a copy of info from Wiki by the looks of it-

"High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles!"

Is this guy serious, if he is then he's a con artist!

Its use basically circumvents the Operating System of the Amiga for greater compatibility and preserves the original program as a non-degradable archive (unlike magnetic media).
Errm, yeah... WTF?

Schemes like that have been going on for years. The Wikipedia license lets you sell the content if you feel like it, so shady people turn Wikipedia articles into "books" (leaflets) and sell them. No legal risks, no investments required - easy money made by fooling the clueless.
