I am adding this book to my list of excessively expensive books. I only list those books I would havb bought had the price been reasonable. It cost the publisher less than $5.00 to print this book. Amazon pays 45% of the retail price, so call it a $25 return. That is too much and completely contrary to the desperate need for making it easier for information to be shared.

I urge all authors to post free online copies of their work and to retain original copyright as we do at OSS.Net and Earth Intelligence Network.
