Re: books about GNU Radio

John:
No one is trying to violate copyright here (at least I am not). I think
people are just trying to obtain good resources. I don’t understand why
McGraw Hill would announce but then never publish Cory Clark’s book. I
assume the book was completely written, but then they didn’t want to
publish it at the end. That seems stupid of them to do. It robs the
community of a potentially good resource, and it only encourages piracy.
They should have at least published it as a PDF e-book or something. It
would have sold as well as any other SDR book. Anyway, I am certainly
interested in purchasing the book, if I can find it.

Adi:
Are you saying that you can find Cory Clark’s book at
http://www.downarchive.com/? Perhaps there is a way to contact Cory
Clark himself to obtain/purchase a copy in PDF format? I did a google
search for him, and all I can find is the following:

  1. “Cory L. Clark is a senior software engineer with Motorola and has
    developed many LabVIEW-based DSP tools. He holds a master’s degree in
    electrical engineering from Georgia Tech.”

  2. http://www.linkedin.com/pub/cory-clark/5/794/145

I ask people to please post any more information they can find. Perhaps
we, as a community, could ask Cory Clark (if we can contact him) if he
could provide/sell his manuscript in PDF format, unless McGraw Hill
retains the rights to it, and would prohibit him from selling it or
distributing it on his own. He could self-publish it on Lulu.com for any
price he would like (I have bought several good and
very-reasonably-priced technical books in PDF format from there before).

For example:

Steve,

I didn’t mean to accuse you or Adi or anyone of intending to violate
copyright, and I apologize for giving that impression. The Wyglinski
et al. and Rondeau/Bostian books have apparently been uploaded as pdfs
to downarchive.com, and that does strike me as a flagrant violation of
copyright, and since I work with GNU Radio, those authors are
colleagues even if they’ve never heard of me. downarchive.com is
hosted in Viet Nam and may be beyond the realistic reach of copyright
enforcement, but that’s just not the right way to get those books.

As for Cory Clark’s book, I would like to read it as much as you
would. When it was pre-announced on this list I went to Amazon and
added it to my wishlist, and I watched it go from “not yet released”
to “currently unavailable” to “out of print” with some disappointment.
I’ve done of the same searching as you have, and I’m pretty sure
you’re not going to find the book anywhere on the Web. Contacting the
author is probably the best way forward.

Thanks, John. I’m watching this thread thinking, “guys, I’m right here!”

Also, Alex Wyglinksi is a pretty good friend of mine, and I’m glad
people are finding the material useful enough to pirate it. Just word
on my book. It’s not meant to properly introduce how to use GNU Radio;
I just used GNU Radio as the basis of the experiments and examples
that were covered in the book. The GNU Radio parts of the book will
probably be more useful to an advanced user and not as beginner
material.

Not that that should stop you from buying it… :wink:

Did anyone ask Cory L Clark for the manuscript or the book?
