A bite of independence...

I bought my origional for 20 dollars and in a recent move it was damaged, now prices range from 90 to 160 dollars.

I think one site offered it as a textbook to a class,  that would explain a lot.

Scrolling down on its Amazon page, it's described as a limited edition book. Now, it's most likely out of print, so the few copies around will be priced as rare books. Unfortunately.

Indeed, oh well, I have seen the same books and quantity of books at the same price for over for 6 months or longer.  Maybe I will run into a copy one day for 30 or so dollars.

Thanks

I found a listing on Amazon UK which has it listed for 30 euro plus shipping.

Seems the cheapest.

If you have a seller of used books nearby, they may have channels to search for it to see if they can find it for a reasonable price.  It must be rare now!
