Instructor access as a non-instructor?

I would like access to a supplemental resource for a textbook that I purchased, for non-school-related use, but only instructors for a course can have access.

I bought Style: Lessons in Clarity and Grace, and the authors note that, "An instruction manual is available for those who are interested in the scholarly and pedagogical thinking that has gone into Style."
These guys are geniuses. I want to get into their heads. But the manual is only available as a pdf download on the publisher website to verified course instructors. Has any non-instructor had any success getting access to some of this stuff, perhaps for homeschooling? What wording did you use in your request?
(And what person/title/department (email/snail-mail/phone) did you address it to? I've just emailed the publisher at an email address where they probably won't have the authority to help me. I can't find another one.)
There are older print editions on the other side of the atlantic from me, and I've put in an interlibrary loan request. But I'm itching for instant access instead of weeks.
