As a long time 5.2 user, I want a *book* or a *manual* about 6 

-- one that will, at a minimum, list and explain and describe the 
changes and new features in 6 relative to 5

--one that I can read, in the evening, in the living room with wife and 
dog, not back at the monitor on my desk, all by myself

--one that I can turn pages back and forth in, and occasionally 
highlight or turn down a page corner, not have to "navigate" through by 
endlessly clicking links back forth (ever hear of anyone "navigating" a 
novel, or a biography?)

Is such available?  To my amazement, a search for "Mathematica 6" on 
amazon brought up nothing to buy; and a search on the Wolfram web sites 
brought up no manual or users guide that I could download *in one shot*, 
and then take down to Kinko's to get printed (as I've done with more 
than one on-line application manual in recent years).
