That may be true. But Paul did ask when the book first came out that it be
purchased through the Foundation just for that little bit of extra revenue.

However, the primary reason to buy the book is not to supply revenue to the
Foundation. It is to support the publication of the book. The publishing
business is such that if this version does not sell as hoped, the
publisher, and probably any other publisher, will forego any second
edition. We will NEED more editions covering Firebird 2.0 and beyond!

So, the best way to help ensure they will be published is to buy more
copies of the current edition. I have three - one to loan out, one to use,
and a signed one to keep pristine.
