The value of reading (Part C — $1,754,383.00)

Your item on BlackWind was mildly entertaining. However, if you really want to talk value, you need to discuss “Spon’s Mechanical and Electrical Services Price Book 2009: Multi-user licence (Unknown Binding).” At $1,754,383.00, it is a complete steal!  (If you don’t believe me, read the Customer Reviews.) [And see the screen-grab below]

The book’s rather corporate author, Davis Langdon Mott Green Wall, describes itself as “the market leader in its field.”

Further investigation finds that the publisher offers a version of this book for just $290, and explains that “Prices have been overhauled in line with buoyant market conditions.”

The multi-user version is still an excellent deal if you plan to purchase more than 6050 copies of the cheapo edition.
