I wonder why many academic textbooks cost as much as they do. The Bakers of Paris and the Bread Question? $88. Origins of Genius? $50-80. Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs? $toomuch. Sure, they’re thick. So? The e-book equivalents are not particularly cheap either.
And we’re criticizing paywalls of paper publications?
