money is awesome but getting sued is less awesome

I got ahold of an Advanced Reader's Copy of a book that is not out yet. It is made by a famous actor (and it looks really, really bad). It has special wrapping related to said author and a "note" from the author (copied, in his handwriting, or at least it's supposed to be in his handwriting). Would it be illegal for me to sell it? Would it be immoral for me to sell it? Could I actually make a big pile of money by selling it?

The person I got it from said that he is not allowed to sell it 'cause he signed something saying she wouldn't, but that nothing's stopping me. But I don't want to get him sued, and I don't want to get sued either.
