The book you're talking about is already online and available if you
have web access. Look for it at this site:

Microsoft has just moved the old URL and revised this whole site.
You'll see an HTMLHelp-style interface (very cool and new), then click
on Books, then the Windows Interface Guidelines. It works -- I just
tried it. Unfortunately, though, the new HTML interface doesn't let
you bookmark anything but the shell. Well, at least it works........
