Well, I double-checked with the XLibris publisher about the release of Surviving the Age Of Obstruction: Notes from the Obama Years about whether it will come with an ebook version.
Turns out the package I purchased - which got revised from when I originally bought it in 2004, never sit on these things people it goes bad on ya - was for the Softcover version only. You'd think it'd be easy to convert to an ebook format, but apparently not.
This doesn't entirely make sense, though. I'd thought I bought a package that covers it. I'm going to follow up on this.
