Kinda inspired by Buffer's JE a while back. I'm asking for a little help finding a book:

The wife was reading another book and it refered to it quite a bit [will update later with the name of it, drawing a blank right at the moment]and she really wants to get this one also. Now I have found it here and also over here, but it's the same seller. It's been out of print since '86ish and the one they do have is a library book and costs $450 [USD] to start! I would like to try and find a copy for _much_ cheaper. I'm guessing it was a text book.
Hmmm... 1. Obtain rights to book 2. Reprint 3. Sell for $50 a pop 4. Profit!

US$ 33.40
Yeah, just a tad. Thanks a lot! That is far more in my price range.... And ordered.

Heh. The first time I read your JE, I read the price as $45.00, not $450. I guess I just couldn't process the idea of a nearly five hundred dollar book. I figured, "Hey, I'm saving him $10, that's not bad." I didn't even realize that it was a whole order of magnitude different...

I did the same thing when I first found it and said to myself "Sheesh that's kinda' pricey! Forty... ughh, having... chest pains..." That's why I thought it might have been a textbook, but at $40-50 that's a little low end for a textbook. Once again, mucho thanks!
