John Doe has worked as a roofer, an aluminum siding mechanic, a manager of poetry readings, a musician, and an actor. He met Exene Cervenka at the Venice poetry workshop in 1976 and started working with Billy Zoom around the same time. When DJ Bonebrake joined X in mid-1977, the lineup was complete. As one of the last original punk rock bands standing, they continue to tour, most recently with Blondie and Pearl Jam in front of stadium-sized crowds and audiences born after the band’s formation. He has recorded eight solo records with numerous renowned singers and musicians and as an actor has appeared in over fifty films and television productions, including Road House, Great Balls of Fire, Boogie Nights, and Roswell. He currently tours as both a solo artist and with X. Doe lives north of San Francisco.

I just got my audio book today! Would someone please explain to me how to access the pdf on the 4th disc? I don't really understand how a CD one listens to will have a pdf of digitalized drawings unless I play it on my computer?
thanks so much in advance.

The way I did this: put the cd in the cd tray of your computer. Can be a windows or Mac, it doesn’t matter. Usually the pc will automatically start playing the content, in this case the audio fragments. Press stop. Then go via explorer to “this computer” and you should get a screen with all the drives on your pc. Usually these are one or two hard drives (C and D) and also a disk drive for you CD player (Usually “E”). Select the CD player and click the right hand side button of your mouse and select “explore” . This will show you all the files on the CD and you should see the pdf file “The Flame_BONUS.pdf” . You can open it bij double clicking it. I would advise you the copy the file to your hard drive / desktop so you can access it much easier in the future.

Hope this helps

Thank you Hugo! I originally bought the CD's to listen to in the car as a bonus. Of course I totally forgot I want to copy it onto my hard drive into iTunes library. I use a Mac but will be able to figure it out now.
Thanks again

I would like to buy the CD version of the audiobook rather than the download version. Where have you been able to get it from?

I bought it at BOL.com, a Dutch version of Amazon so that’s not useful for you.

Perhaps this one is helpful:

If everything else fails I can order an extra copy for you an send it to you ;-)
