I had purchased the atlas of this book. unfortunately after my computer crashed I have not been able to access this book. I have tried writing to the publishers but no one has helped me so far. Its almost 4 years now. Hope someone help me. It is user unfriendly if it can be loaded only once. It would be a great help if the latest edition can be bought as hard copy.
