I understand that the experts book has been out of print for some time and I have given up trying to find a copy on an auction site for over 6 months anything under $100 ...
I came across some mention on another site that 51Studebaker (Don) has digitized this publication and would be able to put me in contact to purchase a PDF copy... this would be really great if this is true..
TIA

I follow the stamp book market (I know, a lot of paint drying) and this book runs hot and not-so-hot. As Jimdendy notes, right now no copies up for less than over $100.00. Still, patience can be a virtue - I purchased my first about three years ago for $65, sold it for $90. The edition I have now I found on eBay for $45.00. What sellers ask and what copies ultimately sell for are not the same. My front-line sources are eBay, Amazon, ABE and Phil Bransner.

Glad to hear there is a .pdf for those who only desire the information!

I think Paul sells the CD version for around $45, it includes:

High_Resolution_TheExpertsBook_revA.pdf - This is the high-resolution PDF of The Expert's Book. Although a large file (155 MB), it is scanned at 600 d.p.i. and provides the highest quality file. Suitable for desktop or laptop computers.

Optimized_TheExpertsBook_revA.pdf - This is an optimized version of The Expert's Book. Scanned at a lower resolution (150 d.p.i.), it is a much smaller, performance orientated file ( 20 MB). It is suitable for lower powered devices such as tablets or smartphones.

Printable_Wooksheet_revA.pdf - This is a printable version of the worksheet found in The Expert'sd Guide. Once printed, it can be used as you undertake your examination of individual stamps.

The PDFs are fully searchable.

51studebaker ...Don .. I had a reply from Paul Schmid regarding the experts book and he said that he is currently out of CDs and his needs to reach you to see about having some more made ... I gave him your email address that I had from your email a few days ago and he said it came back today as undeliverable as addressed ...
Maybe you are able to reach out to him and see about getting some more CD's made because I would sure love to have one and Facebook page for stamp collecting that I'm a member of with over 7,000 numbers is also very interested in quite a few copies
Thanks
