I'll have to admit that I vaguely remember this book being mentioned....5 minutes ago after I had spent 10 minutes trying to recall it ever being mentioned. I can't believe that this book escaped my memory:banghead:
This is where it is displayed/purchasable and it looks very good:
If anyone has read it or owns it, please provide some comments...that includes Don Souden who is featured in the book. Damn ! I must be getting old...:banghead::banghead:

From my files:
RIPPED FROM THE HEADLINES
Anonymous. (Introduction by Don Souden)
2007, softcover, 100 pages, Ramble House (through lulu.com)
Front cover states: “Being the story of Jack the Ripper as reported in the London Times & The New York Times 1888 – 1895.” Should be titled “Ripped Off from the Casebook Press Section” as all articles taken from the Casebook. Article dated 18 Sept., 1888, (page 37) is misdated. It is from the London Times, Sept. 1, 1888. Introduction by Ripperologist’s Don Souden is pedestrian.

I own this book, and agree with Wolf. The entire text is taken from the Casebook archives. I guess the press articles are public domain, but this was shameful to put it mildly.

Definitely tacky. Now if they'd cited Casebook as the source and kicked in a decent amount of the sales price toward funding that site's work, I'd feel a little less grumpy about this.
