You can see the press kit on the eBay listing - the book when released will not come with the "handbag" slipcase.
NY Post 2/8/08: The lure of the Hermes Birkin bag knows no bounds. An advance copy of "Bringing Home the Birkin," which chronicles author Michael Tonello's success in circumventing the faux two-year wait list and reselling the insanely coveted accessories, sold for nearly $1,000 on eBay this week. Tonello's hysterical tome about catering to desperate "label whores" is sure to be on many uptown bedside tables when it arrives in April. "Hermes has created a totally fake waiting list, and if you know how to ask for the bag, you get it right then and there," said one source. "People are so desperate, thinking they can't get Birkins because they aren't Katie Holmes, that Michael would resell the bags at a huge profit. He traveled all over the world doing it."
