I just tried to buy a copy of the Permaculture Design Manual. I couldn't find a new copy anywhere, out of print I guess. I found a small number of used copies available, for $450 each. I couldn't bring myself to pull the trigger on almost half a thousand. I do not understand publishing, but I would think that if they are selling for $450 a pop there must be a real strong demand for this book. Please, whoever you are who owns the rights to it, reprint it!
