I just heard about it this morning and I WANT IT! LOL!  I may just have to buy it from Amazon.  I think it's a book a person would hold onto, rather than trading it here.

I think he wrote a couple, but his main one is on lashon hara and other laws of "proper speech."  Is this the one you mean?

Try half.com or ebay maybe.  There's a particualr seller I use a lot on half.com - http://shops.half.ebay.com/betterworldbooks_W0QQmZbooks  They're a major literaracy project, have done some wonderful things.  Most of their books are ex-library, so it's easier to find some obscure ones.  And they have tons of Jewish books, many for under a dollar!! 

I'm afraid you're probably right, it would be a rare find here.   I have some semi-obscure religious books on my WL, they never come up - as you said, I'm afraid they're keepers for most folks who would buy them at all.   But you never know, someone could buy them - or get them as a gift - and hate them!  So I remain ever hopeful....

Thanks, Jeanne!  I'll try half.com. Otherwise, I'll just save up my pennies and buy it!
