I don't have a problem with the binding. But I DO have a problem 'curling up' with a 475-page tome. I've actually considered tearing my copy of the book apart so that I can read it in installments....and in comfort (and I might just do that). It's the weight of the spine jabbing into my ribs, my stomach, my crotch, my thigh syndrome. Personally, I would REALLY appreciate if how-to "bibles" like this were not bound at all so that we could grab a few pages and go to an appointment, take a larger handful on a trip...etc. I'm sure it's too radical an idea to fly at O'Reilly but my ribs/stomach/crotch/thigh would really appreciate a solution!!
Love the book otherwise!
