One more try. . .

Someone must have this book, or have heard about it.

You probably checked it already, but in case you haven't there are some reviews on Amazon.com:

From the pages on Amazon, the thing I find troubling is the attempt at establishing legitmacy of the opinions expressed by window-dressing the arguments in a pseudo- mathematical language. For all the claims he makes, the "proofs" are laughable.

perhaps your library has it to look through.

I think the guy is full of it. I wouldn't buy it.
