    I just tried and it loaded up for me, it may have been down temporarily, I believe the book is still available though there may be a long delivery time due to popularity. You may want to try again, it should go through a my.ti log in page and than verify your information.

    Unfortunately there is not, this is limited by the arrangement with the publisher. I believe that there are some plans to get an eBook version however I do not know if/when that will ever happen.

    link is still working over in our region; my understanding is that the link never worked in certain regions due to government regulatory laww; you can always contact your local support team www.ti.com/support and they should be able to help you if the site is blocked in your region.
