    Elwell, maybe you can use your superior powers of logic, modhood, and general awesomeness to get this guy to understand that he needs to learn to use the threads that he's already posted.

    Also, pirating is a no-no, vivek. I expect you're going to be warned now. (Unless of course you're looking for out-of-print out-of-copyright books like Loomis' stuff, but I don't know of any for perspective, and mentioning torrents without clarifying sort of puts you in the moral grey zone that edges towards black.)

    To be fair, downloadable books or even torrents aren't necessarily pirated.
    Vivek, this thread should keep you busy for a few years. When you're finished with those, and have worked on your grammar and punctuation, feel free to post again.
