A note on what this is - i'ts much more than just an "app". I just downloaded it to my iPad and I've finally seen a reason to buy an electronic form of a book. There are lots of interactive features, readings of selected sections by Richard and beautiful artwork that really is best displayed on a screen rather than paper I think - although I'm sure the paper copy of the book will be wonderful, this is particularly spectacular. /Mike
From the iPad web page - yes this is the full text of the book
You'll find more informaiton on the app website www.magicofrealityapp.com
