hello 30 bad people. here in canada there is a 80/10/10 page on Facebook. recently someone asked how to get a copy of the book used or free. someone else told them it is available as a torrent on pirate bay. i thought it strange that the same folks post about how much they spend on dates and bananas when dr. graham's book is much less than their produce expenses plus his writing is the reason they are bonding on this facebook page over their health goals. i pointed this out and people became hostile with me for judging them. the person who recommended getting it free through pirate bay complained that they are poor and i should understand. thoughts?

Good point on priorities, Bob.
A man's efforts are worthy of recompense, and the health that Dr. D's literary labors can foster for people if they'll only apply it is beyond calculation.
As Mastercard notes, it's "Priceless!"
We here are very protective of Doc D's work, and do not allow free copies to circulate here. Should you come across such pirate links in your web travels, pls pass them on to me or another PK.
We'll then in turn inform Foodnsport, and they can deal with the copywrite violation.
Keep up the good work, Bob!
Bob, we appreciate your vigilance in helping to keep Dr. Graham's work from being pirated.
+1 Dr. Doug works for a living while still giving lots of his valuable time, sage advice and excellent video talks away for free. He has said he does not want these pirated links around and takes the time to get them taken down. If we respect the man then let us honor his wishes.
In the U.S. you can get the book from the library wherever you are. Just ask your local library to do an inter-library loan if they do not already have it. You can also request as others have said to have the library purchase a copy. Then if you find you want your own copy to reference, as many do, you can buy one. http://foodnsport.com/store/
Faycesca is one cute little kid :)
hm, maybe he is not poor but I don't think it automatically disqualifies him from getting rewarded for his work. If he really liked the idea of giving this book away for free he would probably make it available on his website.
Btw, on Amazon.com you can look inside the book for free.
+1 Me too
On amazon I found 80/10/10 to be $26. $26 isn't much and there is literally thousands of videos on youtube by DR and others who send the message home 100% for free. By the time someone even comes close to finishing every one of DR's videos I would find it hard to believe they couldn't muster up $26 one way or another.
There's so much free info out there and here on this site. No reason at all to steal from Dr. Graham. The cost is not crazy prohibitive, and well worth recompensing Doug for his valuable work.
it's kind of hilarious that i received so much venom when i poked fun at how eager people were to try and get free when that's the reason they came together. why not pay the guy for his book? you can follow it on the facebook link above
The group seems to be private so we can not follow along unless we join. So much stuff is free on the internet so people have learned to believe all information should be free even if people put months upon months of work to compile it into a book, and even a great book like 80/10/10.
Well my copy hasn't come yet. There must be lots of other vigilant followers as well because I couldn't find a used copy on Amazon at a reasonable price. Seriously, $26 is more then I've ever paid for a book.
At least borrow it from a friend or a library if possible!...
