Lizards in an Evolutionary Tree can be bought as an e-book from its publisher, the University of California Press. Naively, I would have thought that a virtual book would be substantially cheaper than its ink and paper counterpart, but not so; UCP charges nearly as much for the e-book as for the hardback. The e-book does have some advantages, though: it weighs less and can be easily searched for keywords, for example. There are disadvantages, too: you’re not supposed to make copies, or even lend it to someone else. Further, according to infibeam.com, which sells the e-book, you’re not even allowed to read it out loud! So, if you’re planning to host a LIAET party for Christmas, or would like to use it for nighttime stories for the kids, or even were hoping to quote from it for dramatic moments in your classroom lectures, you’d better not go digital. Incidentally, the paperback version is due out in February, and Amazon is currently selling it for 1/3 off.
