Just a few days ago I would have done as you and bought the printed version and got the CD however I've changed my mind. I've bought and downloaded the PDF version which does have the example files but more importantly is I've been using iAnnotate for iPad to mark up research documents and it's the answer to my dream. I have worked for days and learned how to make it work for all the basics such as "highlight", underline, bookmarks and more. All enough to simulate what I would have done with the printed book yet now it will be annotated digitally! I can search, scan and love that.
