The printed edition (ISBN 978-1702889346) is 320 while the PDF is 202 pages due to the PDF being formatted as an A4 size document, and the printed edition being slightly smaller.

Free Version

When the book was released in March 2020 it was initially made available as a PDF which could be downloaded for free, as well as a print-on-demand book from Amazon. The free PDF download was available via a Google Drive link, but in August 2020 the author removed the free download citing issues with Google Drive and how it didn't provide download statistics, making it hard to discern how many readers or downloads there had been. Instead the book was made available as a Kindle download, but the author has promised to send the PDF to anyone who is interested. Likewise, the book is available from some libraries.
