ok.  This book sounded promising, until I saw the price!  Well over $200 on both Amazon and BarnesnNoble.  Not sure I understand why?

Is it out of print and is a collectors item, or have my computers suddenly converted to a Yen default?

I bought that book from Amazon.com back in 1999 and paid $8.95

I can tell you for a fact that it's not worth $200.

It's probably out of print so sellers jack up the price.

I'll sell you my copy for $199.95.  Grin

Its last publication was 1993. I'm guessing that's why its priced so outrageously. Its original listing price in 1993 was $8.95

Ah, it's not the reality of value, just the perception of it.  Guess I'm headed to the library. . . . or back to Wikipedia

I also have a copy, and can let it go for $100 Grin

If you're on this site, you probably aren't going to learn much from the book TBH.

That's pretty funny.  Reminds me of college, where a book that typically costs $10 is sold for $85.  Used.
