This may sound odd, but buy the book. The man is running a business, and it's about $50 at the moment, and you get constant updates to it for free when they are rolled out. I'm enjoying reading the science behind it all as well. It's a worthwhile investment, and on top of the free updates, you get extra access to the forums, where a the logs and everything are kept.
