I might add that unless you are interested in studying an alternative 
coil theory (which has been found to be wanting in a number of 
respects), the money is probably not being well spent. The book does 
not appear give a useful recipe for coil design - rather, it is an 
after-the-fact analysis which gives no clear direction on how to 
build a good coil.
