The Authoritarians -looking for non-PDF version

Does anyone have a copy of the free book The Authoritarians by Bob Altemeyer in any format other than PDF? I can convert with Calibre, I know, but I don't know how readable the results of that conversion will be.

Thank you.

Here you go.
Sounds interesting, I'll add it to the TBR list...

Actually, I could really do with a non-PDF/format convertible copy of The Authoritarians. I read it ages ago, after performing a frankly lacking conversion of my own via Calibre, with much expense of energy, but it seems to have vanished from my hard drive somewhere along the line between computers old and new. I'd be terribly grateful if you've got one, fjtorres...?

...And is it worth considering actually sending Altemeyer a copy of the converted file, since it seems crazy the only way to get hold of such a terrific book is on PDF...?

I never did get the non-pdf version of this, either, and would really like it.

FWIW, for the first time ever I just sent the PDF to my Paperwhite using the desktop 'send to kindle' app with 'convert to kindle format' ticked. While the conversion is no great shakes, it's a hell of a lot more readable than Kindle's own conversion of PDF used to be last time I tried a couple of years ago.

@BeccaPrice - a google search with "authoritarians Bob Altemeyer epub" brings up a number of hits. Haven't checked on any and some see to be darknet sites, but as the book was free, I wouldn't feel any guilt from getting a copy if I was interested.

jgaiser - I am clearly an idiot, because somehow I failed to find any such thing on previous attempts. Well, now I have found it, so please ignore me while I retire to the corner wearing my day-glo dunce's cap. Thanks for the suggestion.
