Where to find the book

Unfortunately, because of campus closure, the library is unable to obtain copies of the book for participating students. But there are several options for finding the book online.

Some ideas:

  1. Check the eBooks at your local public library. Some libraries are offering e-library-cards right now. Residents of LA County can sign up remotely for a library card that grants access to e-resources via (LAPL). 
  2. Another option is to sign up for free, 30-day Audible trial, & then cancel before you’re charged. 

  3. There are also a few purchase options.
