PDF of MCTB2?

Where can I download a PDF of the text of Mastering the Core Teachings of the Buddha, Second Edition?

Why I'm keen to get a PDF, specifically, is that although I have bought the hard copy, the sad reality of the pace of modern life (in my case at least, though I have also heard this from others) is that I don't actually read many books any more. I get my phone to read books to me, using @Voice on Android, at 1.5x or 2x speed. I return to the printed text to take a closer look at some passages, when I have the hard copy, but I find I retain as much or more from listening as from actually reading. I am resigned to the fact that my ability to physically, literaly read books is attrophying, even as my consumption of books remains high. 

Thanks!

Seems it has been torrented, though I wonder about the morality of taking it from there:

Thanks, but never mind. It only took a couple hours to cut and paste the text from the wiki into a single PDF document that my phone reads out loud to me very nicely, just the way I like it. I used the physical book itself as a mousepad. The information age is very strange.

The exercise seems silly to me, however, as it has probably been done many times by others. 

Minor inconvenience; enormously grateful for the book. emoticon

Tarver, I have started the cut and paste process but don't have hours more to complete it. Can you send me a copy at jackhat1@aol.com? I would much appreciate it.
