Several of you have asked how to get a print version of our book. At the 
moment, it is not available, although we are investigating options. We 
formatted it as an e-book, thinking this would be the wave of the future 
in labs and wanting to save trees, but perhaps not everyone is there 
yet. We will announce when a print copy is available on coral-list, but 
this could take some time. Thanks for your support!
