Dig around on this site, there's a lot of interesting stuff including other books by Jones. They will cut you off after you download 5-6 items and attempt to get you to join and make a "donation" ... dition.pdf

I managed to get the download (after only a couple of false-leads). Was anyone able to get the 2nd ed. or his other book on Valve Amps to open? The links from the site were dead when I tried.

I happened to see my old post here, original link is quite dead. But I found this link on google for the THIRD edition of this book, 600+ pages in PDF form. Link seems legit, make sure your antivirus is working and take the usual precautions when downloading from an unknown site. ... dition.pdf
