I haven't heard about this book yet, but definitely like the hardcover cover best

I have only seen the Hardcover/Green one. I like that and the paperback. Everyone's reviews sound like this a great read, it was $15 on Kindle though, I would prefer to pay $25 for a hardcover than that price on kindle. A definite read for this year though.

hcmurdoch, I'm with you on that!

MarceJ, I agree, might as well buy a hardcover, if the kindle edition costs so much!
