Have you considered that it might be lying to pretend that avoiding a lie 
is your motivation for posting the link? People may find it for 
themselves without your help, so you are doing no good service.  By NOT 
posting this, you neatly avoid the risk of hurting or disrepecting the 
authors who invested their personal time and money into this work.

Please leave the choice of being benevolent in the hands of the authors.  
It is attitudes like yours that may actually destroy motivation for 
contributing to Tango and other works. Or do you not know that the 
profits of this book help support the hundreds of hours that go into 
Tango developement and maintenance?
