You cannot view the text due to copyright restrictions, however you are able to SEARCH the text for specific names or words and it will return the page number where the name or word is to be found in the book.
I have seen copies of the book and the major complaint most people have with it is that it is not indexed ( at least the copies I've seen were not ).
This way you can do an online search to determine if the name you are looking for is in the book before you drive to wherever the nearest copy is.
Be aware this is a typical search engine and that the results can be confusing.
An example would be a search I made for Captain Patrick Hanna, when I entered "Captain Patrick" WITHOUT the quotation marks I received hundreds of matchs for pages that had both the words Captain and Patrick on them. I then searched "Captain Patrick" WITH the quotation marks and the results were 3 or 4 pages where the word Captain was immediately followed by the word Patrick.
