The original hardback version of ATM book three is the same size as my wife's Kindle Fire only thicker, except that one cannot play Words with Friends with ATM book 3. I'll bet if Alec Baldwin was reading ATM book 3 the chapter all about Schmidt he wouldn't have been booted off of his flight.

That article is in Book 2 of the post-Willmann-Bell versions, Chapter E.9.
I assume that Don is referring to the equations in the Editor's Note at the

you could get the corresponding deflections only for a certain range of
